WIPW

It is "work in progress Wednesday."


The "Butterfly Pullover" from Knit 2 Together.  Have been avoiding this sweater like the plague.  My current argument to not do anymore right now is that I have a short sleeved sweater to finish/wear before it will be cold enough to wear this one. This is the back piece and I am ready to start on the intarsia flower at the top of it...that is, whenever I can bite the bullet and do it!


The "Laurie" sweater from Summer Classics by Louisa Harding.  I LOVE this sweater...especially after successfully finishing the lace border.  The yarn is silk and oh so soft, albeit a tad bit splitty.  This is the back section.  I cast off the shoulders last night and have the neck line on a holder.  The front section is cast on and ready to rock and roll through lace again.  


Sweet Pea baby sacque.  Almost ready to start on the bodice section.  This is a super easy and fast pattern.  I am using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.  The darling little thing also has a matching cap and is being made as a gift for a special friend.



It is difficult to see the detail in this picture, but this is another of the knitted bracelets, but instead of wire, I am using leather cording.  Recently finished one using linen cord that turned out rather well...looked sort of like hemp.  These bracelets are currently being sold exclusively at my local yarn store...Cottage Knits.  Visit them and go to the Heirloom Boutique (the little lavender baby booties are one of the items I have made for the shop)  An exciting event coming up at the Cottage is the "Knit-Inn at the Inn at Irwin Gardens."  (details at Cottage Knits  as well as The Inn at Irwin Gardens)  It will be  a super fun event.  Can't wait to stay at the Inn...not only am I going to get to experience this wonderful B&B, but I will be teaching the classes on Knitted Wire Bracelets. 



Number 11 of 12 Squares.  Cottage Knits  has held a "Squares Class" for the last several months.  We have met twice a month and worked on a different square each time.  The squares all have a border around the stitch pattern and are 12x12 when finished and blocked.  This last class' pattern was Bluebell Rib.  In October, all the squares will be crocheted together to form an afghan.  It has been fun working on so many different stitch patterns.  When finished, this will be a Christmas present from me to some truly wonderful people in my life.
