the Ghost of Xmas Past…


THIS is the Topsy Turvy Time of the Year! These are the few weeks you purge the house of Doxies. Top to Bottom. Under the Couch. Behind the Bookcase.

And what do you find?


In my case: UFOs!

Here we see something I started and sidelined (hmm, banished) around this time last year? 2004? Oh. Apparently, (using my own Google search in the right sidebar – duh) I see I flirted with this in January of this year!

Problem is – now that I see it again, I’m not hatin’ it – I WANT to Wear It!

It was destined to be a simple little shell made from some sparkley ribbon by Katia called *JOYA*.

And joyful she is – shall she get back on the Xmas Bus with the rest of the Holly Jolly #66 Riders? This yarn will surely make the Sugar Plum Fairies go round in their heads!

New Threads TUESDAY!


Pattern: Chic Knits *Ariann*
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Berroco *Ultra Alpaca*
Color: Lavendar Mix
Gauge: 19 sts/24 rows over 4″
Needles: #8

The 10-Day sweater hits the Runway! I started this on Saturday, the 25th of November and VOILA! Ariann arrives at the Arcadia Knitting trunk show December 10th…


This was a very exciting moment for me – I traveled up to the NorthSide with a battery of garments and more to meet and mingle with old friends and new!


The lovely Dana models the alpaca Ariann – you can see that this yarn makes a very smooth, drapey fabric – more relaxed looking than the original green sample.


Along with the Trunk Show, we had a little demo swag time – here is my good friend and muse, Edie, helping me demonstrate how to measure for fit. Here’s a break-down of what we did in an article you can save…


My huge THANKS!!! to all that were able to join us – and especially, to Rachel for taking all the great pictures!


And a huge round of applause to all who joined in the FUN and wore some Chic Knits to the party! Here’s Robin, looking gorgeous in a watermelon color CeCe that was most lovely!

Assorted garments from the Chic Knits Portfolio will be at Arcadia Knitting until December 31, 2006.
Please stop by and browse the sweaters and hats and see the new hard copy Chic Knits Patterns!
