Busy Weekend

This weekend went by fast.  I had to pull-out the knitting, I accidentally knitted in the wrong directions and the two fronts didn't match.  I'm almost back to where I was at my last post and should be there by Wednesday night at the BMYS Knit-in.  I did buy a gorgeous skein of dragonfly yarn on Friday and washed my car this afternoon.  It looks so clean....anyway hope everyone has a wonderful week...

Knitting Gems Hoodie


Well, I've almost finished using the first skein of Malabrigo Rios, Glazed Carrots for this sweater titled above.  I love it and I've only finished the ribbing so far.  Will post more photos as I go.


The sweater pattern is a gorgeous hoodie from the book Textured Stitches by Connie Chang Chinchio, that I purchased at Black Mountain Yarn Shop .  It's really cool, the author has a PhD in physics and designs knitting patterns by night!






































I've also included a photo of the view from our RV at this RV park.  Phil and I spent a hour tonight just sitting and drinking coffee looking at the view.  You can't see in the trees but the mountains are out past them. 




 Watson has been very busy here chasing lots of rabbits, luckily, while here, he hasn't brought any to me.


Hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Paradise Lost, Plum Street Samplers

I have finally started Paradise Lost by Plum Street Samplers.  I purchased a really nice 30 count linen (marbled) from 123 Stitch & I decided to use DMC floss since it's less expensive and it stitches up nicely too. I am also 95% finished with my knitting project titled Cap Sleeve Tunic, from Vogue Knitting,Winter 2012 issue. I hope I'll be able to wear it this winter, since this past winter here in the mountains was so mild.  I'll publish photos this week sometime.

We had our first yard sale this past weekend to sell off some of our junk, terrible rainstorms and not much selling.  Phil plans to get out there again next weekend and I plan to hang around the RV park and do laundry, sew, knit and stitch I hope.  It's so lovely here at this RV park, lots of trees, birds and quiet.

Amager Panel 1799

I'm so excited, I have wanted to order the Needleprint Gifts: Amager Panel 1799.  I finally did this today, to me it is the most excellent blue panel ever!!  Anyway, my HOE exchange partner received my ornament so here's a photo of it for you all.  It's really cool that it's also the Angels of Prairie Schooler...unfinished
and finished (sewn) as a ornament.  I hope to start one of my samplers this Thursday evening (my Friday). I'm still knitting a cable pullover for winter and plan to maybe take a new photo this weekend too.  Hope everyone has a wonderful week.
