More than a meal

We had a great day on the golf course today. The golf tournament was for Mission Services, an organization that does tremendous work in Hamilton.

Ambah has a new pattern out today. Meet Lovetta. If you don't receive Ambah's newsletters, you might want to sign up
Like the second verse of a favourite love song, Lovetta is the much-requested fingering weight companion to Lovella. Knit from tip to tip, this asymmetrical triangle is shaped by simple increases and decreases, forming a biased shawl with a centre line. The garter stitch stripes are a satisfying duet for contrasting colours, while the easy openwork coda is the solo act for your favorite neutral or speckled yarn. Whether you choose harmonising lights or deep jewel tones, Lovetta is sure to sing on your needles and make you fall in love with knitting all over again.
You need two skeins of fingering weight yarn. Think of all those single skeins in your stash that you have no clue what to use them for. Take one and add in a semi-solid and you're ready to cast on.

We received a shipment of Cascade 220 Superwash Merino this afternoon. (I wasn't in the store but I am always just a phone call away). The last colour for the Gradient Lapghan has arrived.

While I was writing an email newsletter came through from Holli Yeoh. She wrote about yarn overs. This can be confusing because they are done differently.

Dad and Lucy are on their way home tomorrow. They've had fun in Myrtle Beach but dad is ready to get back to work.
