When I woke up this morning and looked up at the sky it was dark, dark blue; there were stars twinkling and enough ambient light that I could see the white clouds scattered here and there as I looked up. Now the sky is clear and soft, peachy orange in the East, changing to pale blue grey as your eye moves Westward – a beautiful morning.
I love mornings. I get up and start my day quietly, usually with tea – this morning it is Library Tea from Murchies. I will write the blog, work on patterns, or knit, in the peace of the morning. Usually, my brain is less cluttered and finds it easier to accomplish the things I want to accomplish – now if I could only teach Sohpie to close the door when she comes back it – Brrr the air cold this morning!!
I finished the slouchy. I wanted to thank those of you who sent me suggestions for names. There were quite a few between the blog and Facebook. The name I really liked came from Dorothy Gregory on Facebook – Lauren Tree.
I have been pretty obsessive about working on the Dreamin’ project. The yarn is so beautiful and it is knitting up so fast. I want to wear it!
I am amazed at the length I am getting out the yarn. Jeannette is a sport weight silk/cashmere with only 150 yds per skein, but it is knitting much larger.
It must be the all over faggotting stitch – it is getting even more coverage than I had hoped or expected. Right now it is over 2 feet long and I an only into the second ball about 25%. It helps that the rows are steadily getting shorter!
I wore the little cowl I had painted to work on Monday. I was very pleased with it. Soft, warm and drapey – it sat right where it was supposed too and didn’t move around too much.
This week the Holiday Vogue is available in most stores in the U.S. most likely Eastern Canada. I don’t think that it will make the West Coast until next week. #26 – Cabled Topper is my latest pattern for Vogue. I hope that you will like it!
