Spirit

What happened to the weather? It got really cold and dark in Ancaster late this afternoon. I miss the sun.

Before the sun went down I took some pictures of my Summerspun cardigan. This is the back. I have until June 21 to get the whole thing done. This is my excuse as to why I'm going to stop working very soon and get to my knitting.

I have about 30 rows to go before I start the armhole shaping. YAY! The rows will start getting shorter.

If you don't know the pattern I am making it is called Lady Irmelin-purchased on Ravelry.

The yarn is Rowan Summerspun.

Sorry, no new pictures of Arya yet. I'm waiting until they go live on the Offhand Designs website. My blog post is already started so once I get the go ahead there will be lots of pictures. A box with 6 bags has left California - fingers crossed some time next week they will be in the store.

Kim Hargreaves newest book should be arriving mid-June.
Simply chic. This season less is most definitely more. White worn in clean classic lines provides understated cool, whilst black offers a graphic contrast. The key is to stay sharp yet sophisticated, get in the spirit!
