On My Way!!



Took quite a few days to recover, particular when you combine catching a cold to a busy week. Cascade, Lorna's Laces, Needles and patterns--all arrived this day last week. Finally got the last of it put away Sunday.

Lorna's Laces had 3 new patterns in their box. Gabriella and the Lyerka scarf done in Pearl. And the Tallin Sunset Stole in Helen's Lace. Also the Charcoal color in Pearl. Might be a few days before that gets photographed.

The 3 new Oat Couture patterns are still waiting to be uploaded, too. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to write out a list each morning. There are days not a thing gets checked off!

Stole a bit of precious time and finally finished the yoke top. Turned out the way I wanted it to. Doesn't help that I lost 6-8 pounds since I started it. That's always a good feeling.

The yarn is Cascade's Heritage Sock, which is perfect for the standard gauge knitting machine and creates an incredibly beautiful and expensive looking fabric. I will never go back to the acrylics I spent years machine knitting with. I'm into the good stuff now!!

This top took 3 hanks of Jade and 1 of Chocolate.

Well its late already this Tuesday night and I hope to check off at least 1 or 2 small items on my "to do" list. It's time for all this lounging around to stop and get back to work!! Till next time!
