A little something something...





After having spent the whole day at Rhinebeck Saturday,  petting all kinds of yarn and being surrounded by so many gorgeous fibers, I still felt the urge to go to a yarn shop the next day. That's how much of an addict I am.

When I told my husband that I was on my way to Knitty City, he slipped me a little something something and specifically told me to only spend it on yarn. Dear reader, I felt like it was boxing day on Christmas morning...

I spent all afternoon yesterday at Knitty City and brought home two skeins of Malabrigo Rasta, a skein of Venezia, some Madeline Tosh bulky and a Selvedge magazine:


That husband of mine... he is such a good man.

A full day of knitting, designing and pattern writing

Today I worked with the Madeline Tosh bulky, colorway saffron, to produce a picture tutorial for the shadow cable headband/earwarmer. In this upcoming tutorial I will not only show you how to make that piece, but I will also specifically talk about choice of needles.


I worked on writing out the pattern and test knitting all day long. I have to say, working with Madeline Tosh bulky was such a pleasure. I am thoroughly in love with all of their yarn.

No time to rest when I finished the headband, because I planned to work on a project with the Malabrigo Rasta too.


Malabrigo Rasta

Usually, I am not drawn to variegated color yarn at all but when I saw Malabrigo Rasta in colorway Piedras, I simply got weak in the knees... Just look at those gorgeous colors:


It just ROCKS MY WORLD! I am in LOVE and it was such a delightful experience to work with this yarn. Unfortunately, I cannot show you what I am using it for because I might submit this one to a magazine. Sorry to be so secretive!

What I can show you is a picture of my headband out of the Madeline Tosh bulky in colorway saffron:


Looks cute, even if I say so myself. I plan on releasing this super easy pattern tomorrow! 

Thanks for reading and until the next entry.


You look FABULOUS!

The piedras colorway snagged me too!  I bought a skein of it in the new worsted weight superwash yarn; I normally shy away from varigated yarn but just couldn't resist it.  I hope it knits up as lovely as it looks in the skein.  - Michelle

It's sooooo beautiful! I

It's sooooo beautiful! I can't stop looking at it!
