In this episode I celebrate a new member of the tribe, weep for tools and projects that were never intended as dog snacks, catch up on a month’s worth of knitting, air the stash, and dive into knitting bags.
Heather Ordover’s new book, What Would Madame de Farge knit? is now available for preorder. The book is full of projects and stories inspired by great literature, and includes a sweater pattern by yours truly. Order your digital copy from the WWMdFK? page on Ravelry, or your hard copy at The Cooperative Press.
Laura learned to knit via the Calorimetry. It’s a great beginner project.
This is Trekking XXL color I found so disappointing. It’s not the entire “heathered” line that disappointed, mind, just this one colourway. (I bought the black as well. It’s okay. Not heathered, but okay.) The pattern is Maeva, by Stephanie Bold. The pattern is wonderful, as was the finished sock. Until the unthinkable happened.
Witness the carnage:
Yes. It was a hard day.
It might have been Paris, Barcelona, or Prague. Instead, we said it with white goods.
Putting on a sweater is always a good idea. Do it on National Sweater Day, February 17th 2011, and help spread the word about lowering your thermostat to reduce your environmental impact.
Projects! Projects! Projects!
The Summer Solstice, by Heidi Kirrmeirer
I don’t felt. Unless it’s by accident. Until Duffers, the Amazing 19 Row Felted Slipper pattern.
The Boscage Cowl, by Ritsuka Nashi
Since the Dollheid, it seems I can’t knit enough of the Tams.
Sullivan Street Bolero, from Purl Bee (It used to be the Cider House Rules Vest.)
Also in the queue, Red Kite, a Fair Isle hat project to be part of my upcoming book, Enfys – Welsh for Rainbow.
Did I mention? Driving Miss Daisy is now available on Ravelry!
