Come find me!

Saturday, September 08, 2007


Okay, so I'm a copycat, what can I say?

I saw several of these over the past couple of weeks and felt the undeniable urge to cast on.

Yarn: Marisol Hacho; 2 skeins each #303-Coral Reef and #309-Double Fuchsia
Pattern: Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Needles: 3.5mm Lace Addi Turbo's

I say it's more of a scallop than a chevron, but whatever. It's fun to knit.

you're teaching what?

So, I'm teaching a class at Connie's new store.

Crochet for Beginners.


Anyhow, here's what we'll be making.

Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky #1015 Orange - 3 skeins
Hook: 10mm
Pattern: None of which to speak
Measurements: 4" x 88" (length includes 6" fringe)
Time: About an hour. Seriously.

raw fish

I'm kicking some serious ass with my sample knitting.

I finished The Sushi Purse (a Pick Up Sticks kit) for Unwind.

And my first ever Baby Surprise jacket (in Dream in Colour - Classy #310 Petal Shower) turned out so well.
I love it.
I will make more.
Many, many more.

One step forward - two steps back

Another sample piece for Unwind.

I LOVE the yarn.

As for the pattern, it is easy to remember and navigate, but I swear it's mocking me.

I measure it at 10", knit another two pattern repeats (20 rows), measure again and suddenly it's 9".

Someone please explain that to me.

Oooh! And see the beyond pretty crystal stitch markers I got from Connie? She's carrying them both online and at her new shop.

I don't actually need them for this pattern, but they're just too sparkly not to use.

Yes, I accessorize my knitting.

Spinning wheel

So, I loved my spinning class so much, I've decided I need a wheel.

I don't suppose anyone has a second hand one for sale?


So close I can taste it.
