Look! Some actual knitting!

Well, I have been in a yarn dyeing slump (i.e. I can't seem to find enough time to have a big dyeing party with myself), but I have been knitting in between the craziness that is my life right now.

What is this. . . .It's Soleil! The knitting is done it just needs some crocheted edges and some kind of blocking and I will be wearing this baby. Once it is all done and super pretty I will take another picture! I really did like this pattern. It's a lot of stockinette in the round to knit, but it looks so great.

I have had no desire to knit socks over the last week. I don't know what happened. So rather than working on socks, I started on this:

It's Wisp. I love the pattern and I love the yarn! It was from my Secret Pal, Shelley! I have a feeling it will not long before I am done knitting it.

That's all for the actual knitting. I got this in the mail the other day and I just have to show it off:

They are some notecards that I ordered on Etsy. I got them from Krafty1. It's a set of four cards that are blank on the inside. I love them--they are too cute! And hey, while your looking around on Etsy, why not stop by my Etsy shop? :)

And, finally, I am happy to report on the knitting blog that my friend, Jenny, just got engaged! She is one of my oldest and dearest friends and I just could not be happier for her. She came over Monday and we looked at wedding magazines and talked about all the crafty stuff she wants at her wedding. Oh, it will be awesome! So head on over to her non-knitting blog and leave a message. And, even though she reads this blog I am going to say it anyway, there will be knitted bridal shower gifts. Oh the plans are already swarming around in my head!

Happy knitting! :)


  1. I can't wait to see the Soleil when it's all finished.

    I'd seen the pattern for Wisp before, but never had any desire to knit it until seeing it in that fabulous green color! Now I'm in love. What a great secret pal you have there!

  2. Soleil is beautiful (I have a thing for that color family) and Wisp is simply brilliant!

  3. I love you projects! The colors you are using are great! and a congrats to your friend! Marriage is a great institution, if you are ready for it!

  4. Wisp looks really beautiful!

  5. Lovely projects. Wisp is looking beautiful.

  6. Not in the mood for knitting socks? Unthinkable! Well at least you're knitting something very pretty.
    Can't wait to see the finished project all modeled and such.
    And quit tempting me with your etsy shop....

  7. Well great job on Soleil -- I can't wait to see it finished! And I am amazed at your progress with the Wisp as well. I love that mohair with the touch of angora. I am so happy you are using it!
    Happy knitting to you!
