In the Thicket

At long last, "Thicket" is complete and ready for release.  Thicket features rugged texture which is set against a smooth stockinette background which plays into the starkly contrasting colors.  A beautiful, leafy border gives grace and movement to the shawl, making this a stand-out piece that you will want to knit (and wear) again and again!

Spun Up!

I recently purchased a beautiful fiber braid from a Dicentra Designs at a trunk show our shop was hosting.  This lovely braid has been calling to me from my spinning basket for several weeks...I finally answered that call!  

It took me three days to spin, ply and block this giant skein which is comprised of polwarth, merino and bamboo and the colors are amazing!  

It is now calling to me once more.  This time, from my knitting basket.....I...must...answer!

The Road Ahead

The Road Ahead: It’s not always straight, and it’s not always
smooth, but oh, what a ride!
Winding, twisting texture and miles of garter stitch make up this
simple asymmetrical shawl which is knit in one piece from side
to side.

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I've seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to you door
-The Beatles

Oops!! Er....Watch Your Step!

Sometimes my brain travels at warp-speed and my typing fingers have trouble keeping up.  Because of this, um, er...condition, I slip-up and miss a step.


Errata for Nerida: 

Step 14 should read: P4,*yo, sl 1 st, p2, pass the slipped st over the 2 p sts; rep from * to 1 st before m, (p1, sm) twice, p2; rep from * to the last 3 sts, p3. (131 sts) may stumble upon: 

Step 25: K2, yo, k7, k2tog, yo, k5; rep from to 10 sts before m, k10, yo, sm, k1, sm, yo, k7; rep from * to the last 5 sts, k3, you, k2.
Step 35: K2, yo, k3k2tog, yo, k3, yo, skp; rep from to 3 sts before m, k3, yo, sm, k1, sm, yo, k3; rep from * to last 5 sts, k3, yo, k2.
