Onde = Wave = Ombre

welcome to the slow, relaaaaaxed
Summer Edition of OndeAlong!


Barb writes: “”As far as ‘the experience’ – it was good! I like the ribbed style of the sweater; I tried to make it a little shorter in the body than the pattern called for, but decided it is a tunic style, can’t be too short. I re-did the neck a couple times – I’m not great at crocheting, but am pretty happy with the neckline.

The yarn has a nice feel, for all the acrylic, and the color changes kept me motivated to keep knitting. I usually get bored at least halfway through a project, and look to start something new. I think I knit this without interruption of another project – I would like to knit something else in Onde.”

Over at Days in the Life of a Serial Knitter, Daphne is making great progress on the same design, but in the Jacinthe colorway – check out her June 22nd entry..

Heidi, in between all of the thesis madness, declares: “Two sleeves done and the back is Onde needles!!” over at Compass Knits..

Desha, the KnittingKnerd I hope you’re somewhere in Chicago right now, knitting that PULLI! Maybe I’ll see you on the #66..

The new owner of an exquisite Charlotte (Bon Mot!), Lee Ann writes (June 04): It is the Phil Onde Pull from the latest Phildar Spring magazine–I’m just not doing the little cutdown loopy neckline thing (no one really needs to see my cleavage) ..Wouldn’t surprise me in the least if my Mom winds up trying this stuff; she was drooling over it as I knitted last weekend.”

HEY – what the heck happened to My Onde?

sleeve #2 @13″ – 5″ to go to cap shaping

QUOTE: “This is one project, because of size that will never see the time of day on the #66..”

NOT! This has become my commute knitting with a bang! All it took was one look at our studio’s Art director walking across the newsroom in a Navy Ombre Men’s Shirt (Club Monaco) to start my engines..


I just decided to put another plastic bag in side of my regular *Scruffy* bag to protect the white yarn from free floating city scummage. That’s right, us Urban Monsters are DIRTY and we smell..

But in a good way :)

I finally got the COCO by Chanel cologne..

    Onde mania! Hmmmm, I might be tempted to jump in, the water looks fine.

    Looooove COCO Chanel, it’s my favorite.

    I Onde get going on mine…I phinally phound some Phildar in this town, and bought up a batch of navy and white to do a little t-top (for me) but I am too busy Knitting For Others right now to get started…soon, I hope!
