It's Finished

I actually finished this a few weeks ago. The Concentric Vest by Teva Durham in the Fall 2007 Interweave Knits. The short row cables in front are really fun to make. This is a very clever and cute design! I used two strands of Sonoma with a size 15 needle. I've packed and moved my household and studio, and still can't find the yarn to finish the one I started originally!

Dayflower Scarf

I got my Ravelry invite in November, and I don't think I've signed out of it since! I can lose whole days uploading photos and adding projects and wandering through other people's FO's.
So all I have to show for the last couple of months is this pretty scarf. The pattern is from Barbara Walker's 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns, page 311. It's called Dayflower. The fiber is BRF Grace.

Recent Finishes

My new favorite sweater is "Striped Vest" from I know it's not striped, but this was the yarn I couldn't leave behind when I saw Chris at Rhinebeck. I knew it would turn into something awesome. And I had the perfect t-shit for it too - even tho I stained it (t-shirt not the sweater thank GOD!) with something the last time I wore it. Now I have to find another t-shirt that works.

I also finished the Rose Bud scarf and I've been wearing it almost every day. It's going to be in the teens and 20s this weekend, so I'll be wrapped in my yummy warm scarf.

What I can never get over is how beautiful the colors are. I have 3 skeins of Grandma's Blessing to make into a shawl and then I'll have used my Rhinebeck Briar Rose purchases. I'm addicted to the stuff I tell ya!!!
