Extending the giveaway to the Fiber College class til August 10th. Enter!
The Founder's Wife, overseeing a corporate photo shoot I was working on in some executive offices in VT last week. I like having her keep an eye on us.
Work and family life and summer and 4 wips at once = not much to show. It's not like I haven't been knitting. That'd be so wrong, and could result in something ugly. Possibly murder, and definitely me being a mega annoying super fidgety car passenger.
This right here is the lavendar (with a nice greyish undertone) Colrain lace, that's finally found it's voice as a Miley tee. Coming along nicely except in my travels I have accidentally yanked it off the needles, more than once, coming out of a bag..
In my own private color forecast for fall, I'll say greyish lavendar charcoal purple is going to be Big. At Webs yarn mecca, with every shade possible, my one choice was a sweater's load of Malabrigo Rios in Pearl Ten. (Do you wonder what Pearl Eleven and Pearl Nine look like? I do.) I have had a jones for this colorway ever since I made my sister a Destroyed Cowl . However, this bag of Pearl Ten seems more variegated and contrastier, so I'm not sure what pattern, but I want to avoid horizontal stripes & splotches. I want a go-to cardi, I'd been thinking a new Ribby Cardi but now I'm thinking maybe a Transverse or a Grenadine? or a Kaino? Suggestions welcome.
