yarn, yarn, yarn
I have resurrected a project that has been languishing in my knitting basket for quite a while and I must complete it before the recipient grows too large. It is the Sweeten sweater from Rowan Babies in Rowan 4-ply soft. I am working on the last section and then need to seam and knit the band around the neck opening. It is a wrap sweater and I may attach some pink ribbon as a tie and also to pretty it up a bit. I was thinking about why I left this project for so long and I think I just needed to learn a bit more about how garments are constructed before finishing it up. Or it could be my flighty knitting tendencies. Hmmm.
A few weekends ago, A and I explored a new area of town and attended the 2006 Knit Out here in Victoria (well, Esquimalt really). There were a number of vendors and I purchased a few lovely skeins of hand dyed yarn by Hummingbird Fibre Arts in some of my favourite blues and greens. The light green is a silk blend lace weight, the blue is a silk ribbon, and the blue green is a chunky boucle. I sat and knit for a bit, but it was soooo cold! I also purchased some sock yarn, because you can't have enough sock yarn!
And, if you weren't tired of photos of yarn, here is the promised photo of what I smuggled back from the US on my recent trip to Baltimore:
Just to prove this is a multi-craft blog, here's a picture of a quick card I made yesterday for a friend.
Have a great friday!
