Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments on my last post, I’d almost forgotten about the wonderful bloggers out there, I really did miss you guys. It’s good to be back!
I admit it’s been hard getting my much-needed knitting in with work, kids and house but now that I have summer break and a bit of freedom with the kids heading to various kids’ houses to play, I’ve actually found some of that golden time to play. Here are some of the fruits of my labors. The first is my brainless knitting that I started a few months ago with sea silk, oh how I looove this stuff! My whisper cardigan.
As soon as I finished her I cast on for my ambrosia from Interweave Knits. I fell in love with the pattern when I saw it and funnily enough, I had 4 skeins of the called for yarn in my stash from a sale I couldn’t pass up 2 years ago. Instead of bothering with the hooks and eye closure in the front, I sewed the two sides together and I’m extremely pleased with the result.
It’s been a while but a few days ago I was a bit tired of working in the yard so I went straight to my sewing room in the basement to make some fabric buckets. The left one is for me and the right one is for Alida and her many hair things. As you can imagine, she picked out the fabric and, once again, I really like the result.
Since sewing the buckets I’ve been in the yard working to get this in order and I’ve made tons of progress. The deck is done and roses, lavendar, blueberries and a butterfly bush have been planted along the edges so now all I have to do is sit and knit.
I’ve cast on for the Metro from the twist collective using Carpe Diem which is a merino/alpaca mix. It’s sooo yummy!
The sun is out so I’m off to knit, bis später!
