Ten on Tuesday: Blog, blog, blog (reprise)

Unraveled Wednesday / 1

KNITTING. I mentioned the Stillness Collection a little over a month ago; I'd ordered it, and have since received it. On Saturday, I wound some yarn and cast on the first-favorited project -- the one that initially stopped me in my tracks -- Abulón by Isabell Kraemer.

Naturally, I'm knitting it on straight needles instead of circs. I'm using a bouncy, squishy yarn that I call Realize Sport; I recently dyed the yarn for the outer layer to complement the orange that I wanted to use for the inner layer. It's really fun knitting, and the design would be easily customized as to size by varying the yarn and/or the number of repeats. I predict that this will be finished in no time!

Another result of all the work around here is that in addition to "discovering" my dye studio, I may also have discovered my new favorite place for taking photos!

Speaking of that work, there has been nothing but "back-up beeps" and the clanging of dump trucks & bobcats today as they prep the road for BLACKTOP!! YaHOOOOO. At latest, the actual application of the blacktop will happen tomorrow.

Joining Kat & friends this week for Unraveled Wednesday!

That knitting is fabulous - so different and I love it!

You knit the best patterns with the best (hand-dyed) yarn! Finding a great photo place and imminent blacktopping round out a great Wednesday. Hope a refrigerator delivery is next!

That cowl! Oh My! I love the way that is knitting up. Can't wait to see what you do with that new dye studio. :-)

I wish that the installation of fiber optic cable on our road was going as well as your street remodel!

Vera

Oh wow! Gorgeous cowl. Inquiring minds want to know: will Jun be there for blacktop???

Vera

I just looked at the patterns in that book. How did I miss that earlier. I want to knit them all!

The cowl is gorgeous and so interesting! I've toyed with reading Still Life...it's on my list of someday maybe.
Cheers~

Oh, I just added You don't have to say you love me to my list at the library! And, I LOVE YOUR KNITTING! I need to learn how to dye, I think! That is spectacular! Wow

Back up beeps are so annoying and I hope that gorgeous yarn/pattern make up for the interruption. You put together the best color combinations and this cowl is proof. Hurray for road resurfacing! That's exciting news.

I'm on the wait list for the Alexie memoir on Overdrive. I'm looking forward to listening to it, once it comes in!

Patty

Your photos are lovely! And what an interesting pattern...I think I may have just the perfect skeins hanging around for that!

Can't wait to see the finished cowl and the finished dye studio
