I'm still here...you know sometimes I wonder why I blog because I have Ravelry too as an outlet for my knitting and creativity. Then I realize I can't write on Ravelry the way I do here. So, sometimes I have a lapse in posts as I start to write one and realize I don't have anything to say.
Today, however, I have somethings to show you. First is Aidez by Cirilia Rose which I've changed the back too look more like this Aidez. It looks so small when you put it on the floor - the back looks more like a sleeve but this is very stretchy and I can put it on me with no problem. I'm using Cascade Ecological Wool and it is a fast knit. I'm almost done with the front.
Next I cast on for Big Frill using Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK (long name but lovely yarn). My sister wanted a sweater and she survived going to the yarn store and being told about weight/gauge/yardage and went from wanting $400 of cashmere to make this sweater to $130 of bamboo. I'm halfway up the back and am making it a bit longer for her.
Last is my first lace project ever - I've knit with fingering but never laceweight. Thank God for Addi Lace needles. This is Citron and I'm using Skacel Merino Lace. I keep trusting in the magic of blocking and know it will be stunning...I'm making it for my mom. I had the chance to give her that pink scarf I recently made and she loved it.
