What a great friend you are! Beautiful afghan.

Barbara, that is a beauty! Great idea and lovely execution.

That is a free pattern from Lion Brand. I have not used Designaknit so cannot help you with that. Someone will be able to though!

Thanks, JanetLee, and here is Toni's Estonian Lace Sampler for the May clue.


I find it very interesting, that even though folks are all using the same pattern, they all look different because of the different colors. And they all look wonderful also!

That one looks very interesting. Would like to know how you started the top, but since it it a MKAL, that means a bought pattern and you cannot share! Such is life.

Ann - I am making a cardigan with a nice slip-stitch rib. RS: * k3, slip 1 with yarn in front *, repeat across, k3. WS: k1, * slip 1 with yarn in front, k3 *, repeat between * to last 2 stitches, slip 1 with yarn in front, k1. This is from the Raindrop MKAL. I am working on the sleeves now but the photo is from the yoke and shows the collar with this ribbing. Might be an option for your sweater. Ignore the grafting and ends woven in bit at the center of the collar, looks better on the right side.

Like some of you, I work full time so 'busy knitting' is only a short time each day. Which is why it takes me forever to finish anything. I need to win the Powerball lottery so I have all the knitting time I want. There are so many pretties in my library. :-D

And speaking of work, lunch is over so back to work for me.

Wow, you are one busy lady! So many things going at once.

Barbara and Caryn - nice YOEL's. I am working on the texture one and have both the Estonian May segments done. Tanya mentioned doing the wrong clue - I keep messing up the edge stitches - seed stitch, garter stitch.

Oh no Ann - another ball has been Hectored!

Love the backrub Bev! Nice that they are so friendly.

Nice work on the Gansey Julie. And bonus that you have enough leftover yarn for other projects.

That is a big shawl DeEtta - pretty design.


I have finished the first clue of the Organized Chaos MKAL and will start clue 2 today. It came out yesterday so I am not behind for a change. I have started the sleeves on the cardigan MKAL, well one sleeve anyways. All SS until the cuff. I have about 80 repeats / 15360++ stitches on the Dancing Bees border left to go. Organized Chaos is my daily project for now so the bees are quiescent. Two out of three YOEL scarves are up to date and the third one is on the kitchen counter to be worked on while cooking.

Hope all have a good day,

Melanie

Natural alpaca fleeces are sorted after shearing and can be processed by color. Depending on the source of your information you can find "definitions" of between 20 and 36 natural colors which range between white thru the browns and russets, greys and into black. I think I mentioned awhile back that I had a very close relationship with some alpaca growers in Northern California. I was fortunate to get some true black (well almost true black with a few stray light grey guard hairs). From this four ply wool, I made a very large (and warm) triangular shawl. There is something quite extraordinary about having feed and handled the animal which provided the yarn for one of your garments. No wonder I love alpaca. As I'm reading through your comments Bev, memories are flooding my mind with great pleasure. I just tried hanging the shawl on a kitchen rack. So here's a very non-professional view:

DeEtta, that is a beautiful shawl, and with it being alpaca, like you mentioned, very warm!

Thank you Caryn!
It was another where I cast on from my swatch, did the math, and had to rely on what I could fathom from the photograph's- the pattern is given in Child sizes! I am not very proficient at working from yardages, so possibly erred a little keeping it short, but not too much I reckon. I love the deep greens that I have now.


I have long been fascinated by the number of green shades. I probably have at least 12 different shades of green in yarn, all in just one skein. Some really don't look good together, but not sure yet what I am going to do with them. They were a gift, so I will eventually get around to them.

I have completed, today, the Sea Green Guernsey I have been knitting to Alice Starmore's Scarborough design. I was very fortunate to have been gifted the yarn- her Scottish Fleet 5 ply, in pure UK, new wool. I have cast on to make a pair of gloves with some of the yarn I have over. I reckon I have enough to make a hat or beanie as well.
The yoke is in Double Moss stitch, as is the welt, with double rows of reverse stocking stitch or garter stitch contrasts.


Julie, another beauty completed! And gloves to match, yippee!

Thanks, Jan. :D:D

Oh, Ann, so sorry about your cake. But glad that Hector did not get to do his worst and it was 'easy' to untangle.

Thanks, Linda. My friend has some absolutely gorgeous animals.

Caryn, I didn't get touch that beautiful russet fleece, but I did get to give one a backrub. :D:D Gorgeous YOEL.


Beautiful colors, must have been heaven to give them back rubs

Oh, isn't she pretty. Did you get to touch that beautiful fleece? Is it called fleece on an alpaca? She has a cute smile on her face too:)
Thanks for the great start Bev. I am working on the year of texture scarf right now and a second sock that is moving along slowly! I did finish Toni's May YOEL section.


So pretty

Tanya,what a nuisance but is it not possible to leave it and do the other as well.the only thing may be if you are going to run out of yarn as nupps do tend to use up a lot.
Barbara ,lovely yarn .
My weekend was spent winding yarn .A 1097 yard cake was in a cupboard under the stairs .I didn't notice the door did not catch but you know who saw his chance ,tried to play with it and I never thought it would undo so easily.Luckily it split into sections and there was only one serious tangle but putting it back into a ball took ages .

That is a lot of yarn to wind. Guess your little one wanted to get your attention!

Lovely work on the YOEL. Beautiful yarn Interesting double bloom.

I finally finished my May YOEL. Also took a picture of the 20/2 silk yarn I got at the Fiber Arts Fiesta yesterday. It's not much bigger, if at all, than crochet thread. Yardage per pound is 4900. My skeins are 50 grams or 420 yards. I have a handwoven scarf in mind for it. Finally, look at the double bloom on our Gerbera daisy. I've never seen that before.

Oh my, that is terrible. They must have the same number of stitches for you to be able to do this.

Last Party there was talk about making mistakes and "when all else fails, read the directions!" Have certainly said that on the job more than once to the guys who would dive into the work without stopping to read what they needed to do. Well, in a similar situation, my grand faux pas this weekend was finishing the monthly segment of one of the Estonian MKALs. Looked it over and went to close down the pdf on the computer and guess what: I did the Elizabeth's segment on Toni's pattern All 60 rows and all those nupps. Talk about a scrambled brain. Am thinking of leaving it and just doing Toni's refrain section to keep that theme going. Then I get to do another segment on this pattern and do the one for Elizabeth's a second time. I am assuming that in Toni's pattern all the segments will be different except for maybe the end one. Okay, no more assumptions--write her and ask. Duh!
