Swatching Turned Into Knitting

Remember that swatching I was telling you about?  I’ve started working on the garment and lets just say that I’m super excited about it 😀

What could it be?

Can you guess what it is?  I’m sure its not all that difficult, but I can’t show you too much right now, as there’s not much to show.  Hopefully this will all change in the near future and I’ll have a completed project to share!

Blue Gray? Gray Blue? Blue Gray.

And I must say, I love this yarn.  The color is changing as I knit it, in the balls it looks like a gray blue, but when I knit it up, the blue is really shining through and making the project into something different!

WIP Wednesday

I’m knitting again!  Woo!  I’m also making some other changes that can be found over here, should you be interested in learning about those.

This week I’m working on two matching slouchy hats based on the Chunky Grey Alpaca Slouch in my shop.  Here’s the start:

Can you see the soft?

It feels good to be knitting again.  I had some heavy inner struggle about whether to participate in NaKniSweMo or not, but decided that I probably shouldn’t.  I have so much going on with classes and my other jobs (yes, I have 3 jobs, its too much sometimes).  Regardless, I really hope to be knitting and designing sweaters again, I have so many ideas for them!

What are you working on this Wednesday?  Let us all know over on Tami’s blog!

New to the Shop

I have some new knits coming to the shop this week, namely this deep sapphire blue lacy slouch (the pattern for which can be found here)

Such Deep Rich Colors

And this amazingly soft sapphire, lime and cream scarf

Can you feel the "soft" emanating from the photo?

Both are super soft, knit from wool blends, merino and the scarf even has some *cashmere* so they are some amazing, luxurious accessories for a lucky fall wearer.

What have you been knitting up lately?  Is it cold in your neck of the woods yet?
