About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.

That’s right – it’s DONE!  I finished the knitting yesterday morning, wove in the last of the ends last night, and it’s soaking now.  I’m hoping it dries quickly so that I can get some good modeled shots of it tomorrow.  In the meantime:

And now, I think I’m crazy enough that I’m going to attempt a second sweater.  I picked up Malabrigo Book One at Stitches, and the pattern on the cover (Carmelo) is positively gorgeous.  I’m going to use the Malabrigo Worsted in “Tortuga” that I originally planned for Kris to make Carmelo for me.  As much as I’d love to use it for Kris, there’s just not enough there to get a sweater for him out of it.  And since he won’t wear a vest, well, no Malabrigo for him right now.  Maybe if enough of the stash gets used and or destashed, I’ll let him pick out a color for himself.  Plus, I found that fantastic shawl pin at Stitches, and it’s just BEGGING to be used for this.  The color is perfect for the Tortuga Malabrigo.
