bon voyagie!


Tuesday begins a 3 week visit back home to the bay area in California. I'll be online but my posts may get a bit far between for a minute. We've got so much we want to do again before we come back to No Virginia till whenever we get a change to go back again! And of course, you know, my Cali visit includes yarn shopping! All the way up and into Oregon, no less ;) I'll be sharing stash pics, and maybe some yarn shop reviews along the way!

Take care, and cast on as many projects as you can!

mmm boysenberry!

Just cast on ... a very easy and elegant Drop Stitch Scarf. The yarn; Vintage Purls Sock yarn in Boysenberry Jive.


By the way, my favorite jam is Knott's Berry Farm's boysenberry ;) You can never have enough!

so easy, you have to do it


My second "geometry for knitters" mobius cowl within as many days. It's a quick, fun knit! And ... I've come to believe that cowls are totally under rated!

geometry for knitters

A very quick knit - a mobius cowl. I CO 3 rows last night and in a snap finished it up today.

I love it but, it's way darker than I envisioned, and the pattern is so nice to look at. I'm about to shut down the box and cast on another ... in a cherry red!

encouragement

The idea of casting on another project (or two) can actually be used as fuel to drive you to finally finish a current WIP that you've been slacking on ... so I found out this evening! Not that I don't mind having multiple WIPs going at the same time, or even projects I am deathly sick of, sitting in time-out, while I knit away on something else that pleases me. It's just that I like it when my projects are actually finished and not hanging around, like a skeleton in a closet waiting to pounce at just the moment I think everything (craft-wise) is in order and I can move on to the next ...

My Storm Cloud (aka Peppermint Shawlette) is fini! It's blocking and drying right now, and can't come to the computer screen. I'll post pics when I can drape her over something natural outside. It's turned out way larger than I ever imagined, too!
