Throwing Stripes

Ok......so this is a project I first sawMyra knitting on Martha's Vineyard while there last year and I fell in love....so, I had to do it.  Alix of the Vineyard Knitworks shop designed it....simple and lovely.  At first I thought this amount of ribbing would kill me, however, it was very meditative and come to find out, a good way to practice my continental knitting.  The yarn is Cascade Highland Eco Duo, alpaca and merino...fuzzy, fluffy and so soft.  Here's to simplicity....thanks Alix.

Hitofude

Ok.......so it begins....finally.  I have been eye-balling this pattern for quite some time, then one fine day in August I walk into Bliss and there it is made up and on display....well, "Try it on," Deb says....so I do.  It's one of those garments that fits everyone and looks good on everyone....how does that happen.  It's a traveling pants kind of thing.

 So the following evening I head in there to start on another sweater (still not finished) and one by one the gals around the table try it on...perfect every time.  Well how can you resist it then.  I knew I was going to purchase the yarn to make it....but it grew and grew until it was 6 of us making this sweater.  Most have not started theirs, but I just had to.  I know it will be even more fun when everyone gets going.  I'm enjoying the making of it now and loving the Queensland llama lace I'm working with.  Yes, I'm making a full size cardigan in lace....don't you love it?

Winter Again Spinning

Ok....so being indoors so much has me spinning more to balance the knitting.  Beautiful fibres from River's Edge, Daily Fibers and Gail's Art respectively.  Spun bulky for the pieced afghan in the works.  These fibres were actually purchases with this afghan in mind...ha...finally something intentional.  And on that note....welcome spring.....
