Sneak Peaks....

A friend of mine is knitting the Silk Diamonds Scarf from Simply Shetland 4 -- she's using her own colourway and she let me photograph it when we met for lunch.....

I've never done any modular knitting like this -- looks very interesting.

A couple of you have asked me about the vintage design "Thoroughbred" by you know who -- what shades would I use if I were to knit it....well, I would love to knit it but I have other things on the go right now......but that doesn't stop me from swatching LOL!

So I'd use

It's hard to tell from the photo in Vogue, and looking at the original shades used in Vogue, and comparing them to the shades used in the Scottish Collection version.....I came up with my own colorway. I'm happy with it, but as I've never seen the original, I don't know how close a match it is.

The Thoroughbred design calls for 17 different shades - with two skeins of the main shade and only one each of the other.......that's 18 balls -- would…

First FO of the New Year!

And the last FO of last year -- here they are together.

So sad, but the orange socks that I knit were too small for DH, so I had to knit him this blue/grey pair - both Opal sock yarns. Mine have been washed a couple of times and the yarn has bloomed and softened wonderfully. DH's pair are hot off of the needles tonight.

First finished object of 2008! Here's to many more!

SNOW! It won't be long til we're up there in snow......snow..... during the holidays we went to see Irving Berlin's White Christmas -- a favourite movie of mine so I had to see it live at the Sony Theatre in Toronto.

While Christmas itself was white, but not fresh white......we started the new year off with a new fresh blanket of snow....

Enough to be snowed in until reinforcements came to dig us out!

"You sure I won't get lost out here?"
