And while I was taking a picture of the cherries, I took one of the beautiful lavender on the deck:
So, I know you've been dying to know what I've been knitting. I finished the adorable Aviatrix baby hat to teach in a class (which started last night):
So, speaking of Malabrigo.....
Leaflet Cardi. (free pattern!) This was originally meant to be short sleeved but I made it 3/4 sleeved. love. Love. LOVE this yarn and this sweater is going to be so cozy.
I also recently finished the Pavement reversible cable scarf by Jared Flood, also to teach in a class later this month:
Made with Cascade Eco Cloud (70% merino, 30% alpaca)
The first session of this class filled up very quickly so I scheduled a second one which is also filling up!
AND I made a Pretty Twisted wristlet to possibly teach as a last minute gift for the holdiays class:
Made with Periwinkle Sheep (that's a link to her blog - Karin is a local dyer and sells her yarns at local yarn shops including The Spinning Room) Watercolors sock yarn (leftover from my BFF socks that I made for Chrissy!) and it only used a few grams.
What am I knitting now? My friend Jana and I are both knitting this:
Isn't that so cool? It is the Dahlia Cardigan from the new Interweave KNITS. It starts with the lace panel, in the middle of the back. Here I am on round 17:
Whew, that's it for knitting. Just so you know, I'll probably be posting fairly often in the beginning. I've got a lot to say after not blogging for a month! I'll be doing a little tweaking of the format (link colors etc) so bear with me if things look different every time you visit. Please feel free to leave comments to let me know how you like it...
