Hello, hello, hello!
I thought today I'd share the direction that knitting has gone the last few weeks. Cables + holes= texture galore!
I'm thinking about stuff for winter. This winter while my arm was immobile, I wrote up a number of long stoles/shawls for really cold weather. I craved texture, and I wrote it wishing I could knit it. August is not a great time to be knitting heavy stuff, but the texture in the knit and the gorgeous feel of the alpaca/wool combination are something I know I'll be wanting to wear very soon.
I'm really interested in the answers to the Anniversary post! It's interesting to see how many different styles people enjoy, and to see that (although there are some favorites) it still comes down to a love of knitting in any form. The joy of creation, in a nutshell.
I'm looking forward to the 27th, and am also looking forward to a few more sneaky-peeks over the next week until the first 2 patterns of this 2nd year will be finished, blocked, and revealed.
Happy knitting all!!
