Celebrating 2017!

My Fair Isle Cushion project is finished, washed, dried, and it's
a bit larger than the 20x20" pillow insert I bought....what's a knitter to do?
While I ponder......

I searched up and down the Ottawa St. fabric shops
(a street in Hamilton known for fabrics and bric-a-brac)
and found this on a clearance table - only $5 a yard!
The colours are perfect for my cushion back!

This has been a fabulous project - picking up and knitting each section of fair isle off of the previous bit of knitting....sort of like quilting! Marie used this technique in her Fairisle Club 2 blanket....which is absolutely stunning (I saw it in real life at the workshop). Since I haven't yet finished my Fairisle Club 1 blanket, I MUST RESIST Fairisle Club 2! Yes, I MUST!

Just because I'm resisting, you don't have to! There are still spaces available here!

At the workshop, I loved seeing the garments knit up! Some that I'd dismissed are now high up on my "I'd really like to knit that" list! We even got a preview of a new design....Marie was wearing it!

Clover, an intricate fitted textured design, in Rowan Felted Tweed (shade 196, Barn Red)
Get your copy of Clover here!
Another new one......Posy, an a-line allover cabled design, in Rowan Felted Tweed 
(shade 183, Peony)
Get your copy of Posy here!
to Celebrate 2017, I've got a SIGNED copy of Marie's "Once Upon a Time" here for you

Leave a comment with the name of the design Marie is wearing in the photo above... and your Ravelry name so that I can reach you! I'm also running this same draw on Facebook (with a twist), so you can enter there also!

I'll draw from all entries on January 31, 2017!

Good luck!
