where has the time gone?
Please excuse my months long absence from blogging. I've missed it!
Last fall I purchased a burnt orange, gorgeous Malabrigo Rios and I didn't know what to do with it. I tried swatching some patterns and none looked right. I've been taking to heart the advice that if you let the yarn speak, it will tell you what it wants to be. So I was very excited to find Malabrigo Book 3 in my local yarn store this winter. The minute I spotted the Twisted Cowl by Breean Elyse Miller in Book 3, I knew it was the right fit for my Rios. I have a lot of scarves, so I decided to give this one to a friend. It just needs a few buttons and then it will be hers.
And I've been carrying this scarf around in my purse for the last month or so. It's the Jaywalker Scarf pattern by Jody McKinley. It's for my littlest. Spring arrived early this year in Maine, so she'll have to wait until next fall to wear it, but she gets excited every time I pull it out of my purse to work on it. She's my pajama loving, barefoot child, but I hope she'll wear it when it's finally done.
I've also knit two girls' sweater this winter but I've had to keep them hush hush, as they're samples of my newest sweater pattern coming out soon. I'll post more about it as soon as I can!
