If you're happy and you know it, CLAP your hands.

Second Clapotis is done! The Malabrigo is super soft and not itchy at all! This will be a great warm wrap for the sweet lady receiving it!

Here it is all bundled up and ready to be given as a Christmas present!

Tweedy Myrtle. Tweedy Joy. Tweedy love.

This is the back of Myrtle, almost finished. I really love this yarn and the simple stockinette stitch along with the seed stitch...beautiful, simple. Love. I have also begun the sweet simple yet elegant sweater Joy...I only have one thing to say...sweet. And I think it may take at least a year to whip it up. Teeny weensy, itsy bitsy. But lovely and sweet. I am one happy knitter.

Infamous Pomo sock Numero Uno!!

I really love this sock! It is so comfy and the yarn is absolutely FAB! I will be casting on for Numero Dos this evening...I don't want this one to be waiting too long for its friend. I will be wearing the Heck out of this sock soon!

A swatchin' I will go

I knit a swatch last night for this sweater. I loved this sweater the first time I saw it, I love the cables...I am finally not intimidated by the pattern, after knitting many patterns from charts, I am ready to tackle this one! I am using some Tahki Donegal Tweed from my stash in this yellowish-greenish color yarn with yellow and brown flecks of color (color #838, discontinued)! The yarn is a little thin at times, kind of like Noro's silk garden, but I think it will be the perfect yarn for this sweater! It is not too bulky, will be kind of airy. I am going to try it and see. The gauge is a little off, but I think it will be o.k. if I knit the 38 1/2. We will see.
