knittin away

Well I finished a couple things....
here are the yarn and pattern details.

got a photo for this one finally :) details here.

I'm still working on my Picovoli. I just finished off the waist decreases. So I have really not abandoned that one :)

But I had to start a scarf with the fabulous yarn that showed up in my mail box.

How a skein becomes a scarf:

I'm using a pattern from my new stitch book. Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume One.

knitting blah

For the last few months or so I've been in kind of a knitting slump... not that into anything I'm making. And really not that interested in knitting in general. This hasn't happened to me in the 3 years I've been knitting. So I just kinda knit as I felt like it (which hasn't been that much). Then on Saturday I started Picovoli and have been so obsessed with making it. Not sure why this pattern has grabbed me (just stockinette stitch in the round with some shaping). But I'm so into it. I'm using some Webs Valley Yarn that I got at stitches in February. It's called Longmeadow (I got olive). So I'm both stash busting and making a really cute top (that is knitting up pretty fast). The yarn is nice to knit with as well. So lets see if I can keep my interest until this project is done. (started July 8th... finished... hopefully this month). I'm just getting to the chest area. So the shoulders are done. I'll get a photo added tonight. I just realized that this shirt will cost about $20 to make as well... I love this project :)


so I don't forget


found this blog and just submitted to join. Might be a good time to destash some.

Another scarf in progress

I really felt like doing some cables... so I started this scarf the other day:

it's rowan felted tweed. I doubled the yarn and am using size 9 needles. Just wasn't up for another scarf on size 5's... so doubling the yarn seemed like a good idea.

Just wanted to update this weekend... as I'm taking off tomorrow for a few days. Some R&R at a hippy spa with my mom, aunt, and 2 cousins. It' smoms birthday next week and this is what she wanted to do :)
