Visit me at Windsor Button, Saturday 1/16!
Tomorrow, I'll be at the wonderful Boston yarn shop, Windsor Button with my trunk show and Dreamscape book! I'll be there from 12 pm - 4 pm and will be offering a FREE PDF of my book if you buy a hard copy of the book at the yarn shop.
If you're free that day and would like, not only to shop at this great yarn store, but visit me as well - I'd love to see you there!
So far this year, I've been very busy with my knitting. Since finishing Tim's Lizard Ridge Afghan, I've started a knitted blanket for Ben, as well. I'm using the Log Cabin Square pattern and, as usual, the lovely Noro Kureyon in many colorways. I LOVE knitting blankets out of this yarn!
Here are the two squares I've made so far. Each are 10.5" square and very squishy soft and warm. I'm halfway done with a third square, too. They're VERY addictive : )
I'm also finishing up on my mom's Fudge Swirl Cabled Mock Turtleneck sweater in Berroco Ultra Alpaca. Another scrumptious yarn to knit with that isn't too expensive, but feels like it when you're knitting with it. Yummmm!
I'm done with the back, the front and one sleeve. One more sleeve to go! (Look above at beginning of post for a pic of the back of the sweater.)
AND...I've designed a new pattern (which I'm in the process of finishing up writing at this moment) called, "The Bobbi Scarf". This scarf is named after my cousin, Bobbi, who made me the most gorgeous pink and silver swarovski crystal earrings for Christmas. I created the quick to knit, cabled, wool scarf with fabric backing as my gift to her. It should be up by next week. Yay!
Hope you all have a great weekend and maybe I'll see some of you tomorrow at Windsor Button! ; )
