I love the blue sky alpaca dyed cotton -- but beware, it pills and fuzzes like crazy! :)


That is soooo pretty! Can't wait to see more progress on your top!


Jess - Thanks for the warning. :) I swear, just looking at the stuff makes it pill! LOL

Thanks, Adrienne - I plan to get plenty of quality knitting time in during the next few days. :)


Thanks for the tip on the tea towels! (I like the flour sack style... although I doubt I'll get around to embroidering them.)

That St Joseph is funny! I can't wait to hear if it works. ;)


I am so glad someone is making that cardigan. I wanted to do it, but need a larger size (that larger needles won't take care of). As you knit along, would you please take mental notes of how best to enlarge the pattern? It would be a huge favor to some of us, and I for one, would be very grateful. Hugs, Ann


That spring cardi is very cute. I might have to check that out. and a 40" would be a bit on the snug side, but going up one needle size sounds good to me. Hmm, might have to get that mag after all. I'm looking for a spring project, but not necessarily a tank right now and a short-sleeved cardi is sounding really good to me right now. That color of Blue sky Cotton is gorgeous! I don't mind if you knit cardis, because I wear a lot of cardis myself. Whatever happened to the Bianca Cardi you were working on out of the silk tweed?


I really love those embroidery patterns! I'd thought about buying that book myself, but I couldn't tell how much of the transfers were new and how many I already had, so...

I've heard that St. Joseph works every time - never hurts to try!


I love the Blue Sky Cotton - it does pill, but it is so soft and nice that I think it's mostly worth it. I've had my eye on that cardi too - I was thinking of using some of that good old standby - Cotton Ease! And the Sublime Stitching book is fab - I got to meet the author/designer last fall and I have some of those in my summer to-do list! Two more days for me and then a summer of knitting!!!!
