July 28, 2006



I saw that on eBay and apparently, Vanilla is a hot, not to be found color-I wouldn't pay that much, but I bet you would (if you wanted it enough) :).

Now that I know the name of the pillow you are making, Beachcomber makes perfect sense. It looks like (don't laugh at me) after the machine comes to comb through the sand and clean the beach in the morning. Same waves and all. I love how it's working out.


How cool. I got the e-mail, and ordered and printed out the Knitted Bodice Pattern last night. I'm thinking about the short-sleeved version.


Wow! Some people just go nuts bidding on stuff on eBay.

All your WIPs look very, very nice! I don't know how you manage to do several things at the same time. I would lose my place! I lose my place working on one. haha I use a row counter, great invention!

You must be looking forward to your new job!

Have a great day everyone!


Deneen - Doug told me last night to go & buy the $6.00 kits at Tuesday Morning! Just to get the yarn! ha! I don't know ...I'm tempted to just get 3. I know I could make a sleeveless top from 3 and $18.00 isn't terrible. You're right - if I *wanted* it bad enough, I might pay $10.00/skein...but I can guarantee I'll NEVER want it THAT badly! LOL

And I'm not laughing a bit about the beach combing - makes perfect sense to me!

Vera - I'm thinking of making it with the black CE I just picked up. :)

Margaret - I think I'm more looking forward to the paycheck than the actual work! LOL It'll be an adjustment, that's for sure. But heck - I can't complain about a 7 hour workday!


I bought the Knitted Bodice pattern yesterday too! What yarn are you going to use? The Tilli Thomas yarn is $28.00 a skein! (I also ordered a truckload of CE from Smiley's yesterday!)


I got my IK in the mail yesterday, and thought the same thing about the Wanderlust Hoodie.

I really like the Weekend Pullover and the Breton Jacket.

I think I'm going to have to make the Swallowtail Shawl... and for the first time ever, I actually have the yarn in my stash to make it (I almost always buy with a project in mind). I may even have to cast on for it very, very soon (hmmm... maybe today).

Thanks for the heads up on the new sweater pattern... it's gorgeous! I do have bunches of CE on hand, should I want to go that way, but I also scoped out some very nice yarn online that has colors I think are better suited to this sweater, so we'll see.


That price for Vanilla C-E is outrageous. I have 4 skeins I bought at $1.50 a skein at Joanne's last year. If you want them, let me know. I was thinking of getting rid of it, as I have no plans for it. I'll be happy to send it to you.


Karyn - Obviously great minds think alike regarding patterns! I'm honestly leaning toward my black Cotton Ease, just because I have it on hand and it's the right color. I know the drape will be ok - especially after it's been washed once. But I'll take another look through my stash to see if something else pops out at me. I'd really like to avoid buying more yarn if I can help it. ;)

Leisel - That Breton Jacket caught my eye too. I can't wait to get a copy & look at the designs close up.

With all the people buying the Bodice Sweater pattern, we should have a KAL. hehe

Wanda - You're a sweetie. :) I think your offer is too good for me to refuse. I'll be emailing you.

I went through the IK site to see if it was actually the same designer, and if it's the Cabled Cascade Pullover (Fall '05 -- No picture on the site.) then the designer was Jennifer Appleby.

They are quite similar. Makes you wonder if IK gave them the kind of patterning they wanted used and said, "Here, make a sweater".

Shirley Paden has been designing for IK since at least 2000. You can look up the designers on the site and see what they have contributed to IK. It's a pdf.


Whew! I finally found that issue of Vogue Knitting. The pattern comes from the sweater on page 70, called simply "Cabled Pullover" and it was designed by Michele Rose. :)

Now I can sleep tonight. ::Grin::


I am going to buy that pattern I shall wait and see what yarn you end up using.


The pillow reminds me of desert sand too.
