Camellia




Pattern: Camellia by Glampyre
Yarn: Classic Elite Duchess in #1060 Greatest Green
Comments: As I mentioned in my previous post, I test knit this for Stefanie Japel, the designer behind Glampyre. Very easy knit, although the seaming was a bit tricky due to the lace. Definitely a keeper! I'm also adding Duchess to my list of all time favorite yarns.

In other news...

Y'all cracked me up with the hair comments. I'm surprised anyone even noticed! I was wearing my clip on extensions in the picture. If any of y'all have wimpy hair like I do, you should consider trying them. I feel so "Hollywood" when I wear them!

My next topic: Christmas knitting. I told everyone I wasn't doing it after my mad dash last year. Little did I know that my girls would see the Twinkletoes pattern on this most recent Knitty. Now, when your babies tell you all they want for Christmas are the slippers and a scooter, any self-respecting mother and knitter will drop all and get to knitting.

Just gorgeous. Yet another pattern (and yarn) I've eyed. Maybe WE were twins in another life? Alas, so little knitting these days!

Oh, your girls will look just so cute in their twinkletoes socks -- it'll be totally worth it. I can't wait to see them!

Camillia looks wonderful -- definitely a keeper, as you say.

I see you have your Christmas decorations up. I'm only about half done. Since Dad and I have the "crud" I'm moving kind of slow.

I LOVE that pattern! It looks great on you. That is definitely a pattern I want to knit up. I have done some minor knitting for Christmas gifts but nothing that will stress me out in the end. If anybody comes in the store wanting ideas for me that Camellia pattern is a definite yes!

Mmm, green! I love that yarn as well, I call it the kitchen sink yarn because what fiber ISN'T included?? Who knew that so many fibers could get along so well.

Can't wait for Stef's book to be out...

The sweater looks great and I love the color. I understand how you could get sucked into the Christmas knitting. With girls as adorable as yours, how could you deny those cute little faces.

I'm absolutely stunned by how gorgeous Camellia turned out, and you look so fantastic in it! I'm a big lace-fan, so this is definitely a pattern that I'd try out immediately! The colour's so lovely too - it's perfect, absolutely!
