I haven’t talked about yarn and knitting for the past several entries so I suggest we jump right in, yes?
Fall is a comin’
Last week, we got slammed by some yarn that Sally had ordered for Fall. Sally ordered so much colors of Manos that my head was about to explode! I could feel the creative juices flowin’. I am so going to get me several skeins and knit me a bag. I am thinking felted bag!
Also, a lot of Misti Alpaca Chunky came in and I snatched a beautiful red heathery color and am knitting up the same scarf I made for my brother last winter. It is going to be a store sample and I am going to be teaching a class with this scarf. I am excited!
Next up is Karabella’s SuperYak yarn. It is so yummy and fluffy and soft! I am knitting up a little swatch and am now ready to wash it and see how it gets even more fluffly. Delicioso.
Last but not least, some 100% silk yarn with little silk dots. Look:
Interesting, eh? I am intrigued. Oh it is vegetable dyed, with logwood, by Catherine van Laake who used to live in Portland. It is kind of weird, but I kind of like it!
Inspiration Board September
The Vogue September (mind you, I am not talking about Vogue Knitting here) is out. I got a copy, browsed and tore out the pages I liked best. I cannot show you all the pages that I liked so I took pictures of the ones I really really liked.
Often times, when I see a garment that I like, I am cracking my brains how to translate it into knitting. This piece got my attention:
Ooooh, don’t ya just love the sweater this model is wearing..? I so want to make it:
Last but not least… look at her wrap. Stylin’… I can so see that knitted up…:
Allright, that is it for now. I am going to be mad busy knitting these coming weeks. My head is bursting with ideas and I just cannot wait to start the projects that I am pondering about.
Ah, feels so good to be back into my knitting groove!
Thanks for reading and untill the next entry!
