Catching up

Boy, I haven't posted in ages. Things have been crazy (in a good way) at the shop. Not to mention, I had a little health scare. I'm on the mends now! Looking what I've been working on.

Pattern: Men's Convertible Fingerless Gloves by Knit Picks

Yarn: Atacama #509 by Araucania

I made these for Mr. Lovie to wear hunting. He seems to like them, although it hasn't been cold enough yet for him to wear.


Pattern: Pull Kimono by Phildar

Yarn: Rowan Kid Silk Night #608, Phildar Sunset in Argent

I bought the yarn and the pattern in Montpellier, France while vacationing there. I had the pattern translated when I got home. The Kid Silk was substituted for an incorrect Phildar mohair I bought by mistake. I love the bat-wing sleeves on this sweater. The Phildar Sunset is a metallic that really gives it some "bling". All in all, I adore this sweater. Not just because it is different, but because it reminds me of my wonderful trip to France.

Pattern: Salvador by Louisa Harding. From Venezia Felia Mai Dopo.

Yarn: Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon #20, Louisa Harding Kashmir DK #16

My second sweater in a row with a Dolman sleeve. Again, I am SO pleased with how this sweater turned out. I was afraid that the ribbon would be scratchy, which it isn't. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the sweater is knit in a really cool lace pattern. The design is a one-size-fits-all, so it is baggy on me. The fit is slouchy, which I like as well. I made this for Yarntopia's upcoming visit by Louisa Harding herself. Hope she likes it.

Such cute sweaters! Those must be nice and cozy, too. Wouldn't be warm enough up here - we have to wear all down, all the time now!

Hope you're feeling better!

Love the Salvador. Love the color scheme you picked out, maybe....I'll have to "borrow" it....lol

Health scares are for 2007, 2008 will be great! (my resolution)
