Much Ado About Knitting

So we are t-minus 18 days until we start selling our work! I hope everyone is As excited as we are! Im still knitting like a fiend, and prolly will for the rest of the year! So buy like crazy because I’m working my butt off to produce beautifully knitted products for YOU! I know all of us are! (shout out to my two partners in crime! They have lots to sell as well!)
So, I have finished my cowl, and half way finished with my last wash cloth in the set I made…I already have my next set of wash cloths started (well…I have the first cloth on the needle and the pattern worked out at least!), and I’m thinking about my next project: Fingerless mittens! Shew! And don’t forget, I also have prints for sale! If you love Kentucky, you will love my prints, all of them were taken in My Old Kentucky Home!
So, here’s a picture of the cowl I just finished…I have tried it on and oh man…it feels so nice around the neck! I could sleep with it on if it wasn’t so warm! Perfect for fall and winter! Enjoy!

I thought I’d post a picture of my lil jailbird…he ran off Thursday and was turned in to the pound! Adam bailed him out…he’s got blisters on his paws…and maybe a new tattoo from his wild night…but I think he’s happy to be home! And I am SO happy he is home!

Moving Along

So I haven’t been as productive as last week…but I am still moving along. Right now on my needles is a cowl, and off some other needles, the third washcloth in my set! One more to go! But I am taking break from that and I am working on this wonderful cowl, it may be one of my favorite cowls I have worked on in a while, the zig zag pattern makes the cowl stretchy, and the wool I am using is merino, and if you have ever felt merino wool, you know how wonderful it feels! So for this cowl which is a bit snug around the neck, it’s perfect! So if you enjoy wonderfully soft merino, and warm cowls, this cowl will be perfect for the cooler months coming our way! I have 2 more skeins of merino wool, so there will be more of these to come! Enjoy!

My hour challenge

So, my soon-to-be mother-in-law sent me this beautiful pattern for a washcloth…washcloths are so fun, because they are square and typically a repeat of the same few steps…which typically make them a fast project…so after glimpsing over this pattern I was thinking out loud, I think I could finish this in an hour? And if I could it would be awesome because I love the pattern, and I could make lots for our sale! So…Adam Lynch was in the room, and had to challenge me…”no you can’t” he said….so I said oh yes I can! Let me find some yarn! So he set a timer….and when my hour was up, I only had about a quarter of it finished….good thing I didn’t bet anything! Well, I am still going to finish the washcloth, and you will defiantly see this in the sale…just not this particular washcloth though…it’s promised to Kay, who sent me the pattern! So here’s what I have so far!

*REMEMBER*! 38 days until we start selling our work!!
