I'm Addicted

Finally a picture of Time Trades.
I made it to the LITLG Singles. In this section there are 136 rows. I'm on row 47. Then there is another 68 rows. The pattern is addictive. You do the lace work on one row and then three 'rest' rows. Just knit and purl.

I was going through my pictures looking for something and found one that I didn't share. Alex is knitting Rose (pattern purchased on Ravelry) by Andrea Mowry. She is using Uschitita. The pattern calls for sport weight yarn and she is using fingering - she did a tension swatch (Alex always does a swatch) and she's dead on tension.
This open cardigan is a true adventure in knitting! Combining unique sideways construction, cables, fading and exposed seams to create a flattering oversized dolman style sweater that looks great on all types of figures! Knit in one color or four, to suit your style! This sweater has a beautiful curved underarm that creates a lot of drape for an oversized look, with long, slim cuffs that give you different styling options. You can either wear them long, to accentuate the slender portion of your arm, or cuff them for a shorter sleeve!
And then there was another one.
We now have the knit kit in turquoise and purple.

We've added a new class to Knitting Camp this year. Dying Sock Blanks. 

In a nutshell, a sock blank is a knitted rectangle designed to be unraveled and then knit into socks, scarves, shawls, mittens, or anything you would knit with fingering weight yarn.

They look a little bit like an unfinished scarf with live, loose stitches at each end.  Sock blanks are machine knitted with undyed yarns and then dyed. Gradients, stripes and random splashes of colour are all popular designs for sock blanks.  

Take a look at this blog post from Felicia at SweetGeorgia Yarns for ideas of what you can make with sock blanks.

We still have room in all the workshops but don't wait too long. There is a limit on the number of people we can have in the dye workshops.

See the workshops and pricing on our website...

Dad and Lucy came for dinner and we watched the start of the TiCat game. Wow. It's hard to tell if Hamilton is really good or Montreal is that bad. They've left and now I have my knitting chair back. I'm going to knit and watch Monday's episode of Love it or List it. Then bed.
