I'm actually knitting!
Well, sorry I've been delinquent in maintaining this blog thing...I don't really have an excuse except I've been kind of away from the computer. I've actually been trying to knit! What a novel idea for a YARN shop owner! This week I've completed an adoreable baby sweater by Debbie Bliss in the Cashmerino baby. I loved working with it! Even on a size 3 needle. I made the Matinee Jacket in a very soft raspberry color that really reminds me of raspberry icecream. I've also completed a 2T cardi in JoJo land Rhythm that I got at the New England Needlearts Show in Sturbridge 2 weeks ago. Her yarn is gorgoeous. Really. Each skein in this bag was the same dye lot but each one was different..meant to be that way. Soo cool! Emily is making some socks out of the fingering weight and the colorway is fabulous and the softness of this superwash wool is grand. Very subtle color changes and her patterns are really different and interesting. Check out her website@ jojoland.com. (i think). I'm now in the process of finishing my 3rd sweater in 2 weeks. This one is the magic stripes using Paint Box from KnitoneCrochet2. It reminds me of something Dr. Seuss-ish. I like it though. A 6 yr. old would love it. I'll take some pictures and post soon. Don't forget the smaller summer projects you can do now for Christmas! Get Going early. The shop is cool and comfortable on those hot summer days if you need a get away, think of us.
