I have done a lot of starting recently - and not nearly the finishing I SHOULD do... Oh, well. I spend all day doing the shoulds. Crafting is where I can do the wants, right?
Anyway, here is the start of my Cha Cha scarf. Yarn is Trendsetters Cha Cha in 421 Olive. Love what a fun, quick knit this is. Cast on 12 stitches and using 10 needles. The ruffle affect is achieved by knitting in between the boxes along the ribbon and twisting the yarn when knitting it. There's a great You Tube video Jimmy Beans Wool put out that I used to learn how to work with this fiber.
Here's a sneak peak at my new pattern using Martinique by 3 Sisters for Moda. Early days in the design process. Let's see if my vision becomes reality. More than likely, I'll have to adjust along the way. That's the beauty of the creative process, after all, right?
Finally, if you've ever wondered what 7 yards of fabric folded looks like, wonder no more. Behold, Kona Snow.
Loving the new Knit Picks catalog. Check it out online. I'd love to make the English Garden Socks for all Seasons on page 16.
Enjoy this summer weekend. Looking forward to putting out a new podcast on Sunday! "Talk" to you then, my friends.
