The cable scarf is complete and heading to University of Michigan tomorrow morning. 100% wool yarn Montana by Tahki.
Vogue Knitting Live is in Chicago this weekend at the Palmer House. Soak had some really clever kits that included a fingerless glove pattern, the yarn, matching nail polish and some Soak. A great gift for the knitter in your family. The activity in the Be Sweet booth was wild and contagious. The yarns were outstanding. But, my favorites were the vintage packaged Blue Sky Alpacas Petite Knitting Patterns found in Nina’s booth. Those, I am definitely making for Christmas for my peeps. They are darling. And afterwards, who wouldn’t want to hang in the lobby at the Palmer House? It is stunning. Viva La Vintage.
Finally off the needles! I am a little late in finishing this sweater for summer, but hopefully I will be able to wear it in Florida this winter. Though I love cotton, I find it difficult to maintain a consistent tension, yet feel it works well with texture. The moss stitch border really added a nice finishing touch. I’m off to find some new yarn for my next project and look forward to visiting Knitche in their new location.
Stitches Midwest is being held this weekend in suburban Chicago and if you a knitter you definitely should not miss this event. Donna Higgins at Heirloom Stitches is one of my favorite vendors and I always look forward to visiting her booth. She has darling baby and toddler designs which I am saving up for future use. The entire show is pure eye candy not only for the yarns and patterns that are there, but most of the attendees are wearing their latest and greatest creations. It’s a live walking fashion show. Unfortunately, photography was limited at this year and my pictures do not do this event justice. Just go!
I can’t wait to finish this!
Pattern: Ann Norling, Quick Knit Shell
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn, Jeannee

I finished my new summer cardigan last night. It has a couple of boo boo’s, but what hand knitted sweater doesn’t? Now back to Ravelry to check out what I should knit next!
I have high hopes that this will turn out to be my favorite cotton sweater for the summer!
Finally!!! Finished the second Xmas scarf. Better late than never. Back to the rug.
The week before Christmas I started knitting these double loop scarves for the girls. I thought for sure I would have them done in time. My husband said I was crazy. For the record, he was right. Oh well, better late than never! One more to go.
