Sunday Musings


I spent the weekend doing some cleaning and managed to get some knitting.  In fact, I just decided to quit for the night so that I can do a blog entry.  I am still knitting and coming towards the end of finishing my hat with decreasing at the top.

I am working on my sweater using Vanna’s Choice yarn from Lionbrand.  I just knitted the increase row and beginning to work the sweater in stockinette stitch.

I purchased the new book “Stitch ‘n Bitch Super Star Knitting – Go Beyond the Basics” by Debbie Stoller.  The book is designed to build a knitter’s knitting skills in colorwork, intarsia, fair isle, cables, lace, knitting with beads, steeks, and how to design your own patterns.  The book also includes 41 original patterns.  Debbie books is one of the few knitting reference books that carries an ample amount of patterns.  There are a few patterns I would like to knit – here are few from the book:

I love this cardigan sweater and glad that Cascade is the yarn used for this project.

This is a really cute lace skirt and think it would fun knitting and wearing it.  The belt is from the Urban Outfitters.

I don’t know if I will knit these lace socks, but they are really cute.  I am going off to bed, and hope that I get a chance to write a post later in the week.  I am going to the Nate Berkus Show taping this week, unfortunately I cannot take photos as it is a rule of the show and most talk shows.  I am going to say ciao for now.
