I received an email from Dream in Color last night. There are new colours of Classy Mini-Skeins coming in about two weeks. This group of 25 colours is going to bright, cheery Spring colours. Cathy is going to be happy. Now she will have an excuse to knit another Technicolor Cowl. Rumour has it that she was looking at colours to make another one on Saturday.
We've been rearranging garments and found our Kalinda shawl knit in Classic Elite Cerro. The pattern is available in a book (#1402 Sunny Day) or you can buy the individual pattern on Ravelry.
A triangular shawl worked from the center top to long lower edge in a sampling of eyelet stitches.
A few more patterns from the Sunny Day pattern book.
A lacy wrap with large tassels added to each of the corners for a whimsical flair.
There is a cute summer top in the book as well - Abelona.
Lace panels combine with openwork mesh for a light and airy summer smock top.Purchase the pattern on Ravelry...

The Kudzu Shawl by Rachel Henry is one of the Web-Letter’s greatest hits. The clever way the braided cables at the top grow into rows of leaves, flowing from one tier to the next makes it an irresistible knit for lace lovers. A quick click through of projects on Ravelry brings up beautiful modifications too – more leaves, and beads!Download the pattern...
Beth and I snuck into the house today. The fireplace is taking shape. Now we are waiting for the stone to be put on face. We chose the stone from a very small sample and are anxiously waiting to see how it looks on a large surface.
I need to sign off and head back to the store. I forgot the cord to my computer. UGH! I've never done that before and it makes me mad. I'm wasting time that could be spent knitting.
