Pics from Fix


Here I am fixing a mistake no one would have ever noticed or known about other than me.  You can see in the first pick the wrong side has some knit stitches that should have been purled. You can't even really tell on the right side since the mistaken purl stitches fit right in with the garter stitch. However, it bugged me and fixing it took 10 mins tops. I just popped out 2 stitches and laddered down to the mistake. Taking my crochet hook I just pulled up 2 loops then flipped the work and pulled up 2 more using the next ladder. Repeat until you are back to the top, and voila! Good as new.

Last of the Summer Weekend Getaways

What is it about the first nip & crisp to the air that make my fingers itch for some needles and yarn. I am currently on a train & that seems to just make knitting that much more satisfying. I am actually still working on same project I was in the spring. I have been so busy there hasn't been much time for knitting.
I should have brought that extra ball of yarn. Every knitters nightmare - perfect knitting circumstances & no yarn! Horrors. So I am taking the time to post a pic of my progress so far. This is one ball into this cardigan project. The yarn : Linea Pura Cashsilk is super soft and fast to knit up. Case in point I must have subconsciously wanted to knit more as I made a mistake on one of the cables and only realized when I got to end of yarn. So I got to tink 2 1/2 rows, and knit longer. Pulling into Grand Central now, I will post some pics from the weekend.

These lovely skeins came to me as a gift from my friend Hannah.  She recently came back from Peru & brought these back for me. So so soft & undyed! These skeins are actually the color of the baby alpacas, a beautiful soft dove gray & a darker slate. I also love the label illustration.

Lady Liberty

This got used when we went to see the Statue of Liberty. So great in those single digits with wind chill!

Herringbone Cowl

After being out in the weather we've had here in NYC for the last few days, I realized this cowl needs that second layer of ribbing, to trap the air between the layers. So this is the outer layer and I will be doing a ribbed neck warmer to attach to this outer peice.

Harbor Sunset

To new friends!

This is a shout out to Anne & her gorgeous baby cardigan she so graciously allowed me to photograph.
I am in love with her genius color selection.
2 rows of an olive green then 2 rows of a varigated yarn called "into the woods".


How awesome is it that dinner out after a long day of perusing yarn at VKL, would have a yarn bombed tree right out side the window. Please excuse the horrible pic I will have to get a better one when I come back & knit in front of this cozy fire.
