I might be seen, about 5-ish, strolling Boul Mich, wearing this over a little black dress?


Pattern: Chic Knits
*Eyelet Cardi*
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Rowan *Wool/Cotton*

OK, that was a slightly fantastical statement, but after SO many days of sub-zero grey and looking like a TeleTubby, a parka-captive girl can dream can’t she???

I’m dreaming of blue skies and huggy weather; you know where the air wraps its balmy, slighty moist arms around you and smiles.

This is the sweater that would see that smile and smile back :)

I loved working with this yarn! It knit very evenly for me on Addi Turbos. I’ve heard people shun knitting with cotton or blends because of issues with finger stress and gauge, but I have a theory! I’m a thrower and I think the way I hold the needles and loop doesn’t stress my hands. This could possibly be one of the only benefits of knitting like a child; I knit in just about the same configuration I did the day my Grandmother taught me.

Last Saturday, I spent the entire day at the Cultural Center on Randolph (oops, no camera). It was a great turnout! There was spinning in one corner, dyeing in another. I helped make up a boatload of mini-skeins for people to play with. There was beading, knitting and more!

Then I shared a table with Natalia and Sara and we had a ball! We even got the chance to teach. A mom and her daughter came by and Sara taught the daughter to knit and I taught the mom to crochet. It was amazing
