Obsessions, Trunk Shows and Noro Love...
My newest OBSESSION: Fox Paws by Xandy Peters. This is a trial swatch with some leftover yarn.
Great lace tip needles are a MUST. I've gotten a new pair of Hiya Hiya Sharps to use with the DK weight yarn I will be attempting to use (the above is in a fingering weight of leftovers). More to be revealed... I hope.
Rose Path, our amazing local yarn shop, had a wonderful trunk show of hand-dyed yarns, Theodora's Pearls by Jennifer Thompson Miller. Don't you just love seeing all those beautiful colors!
Plus, there were all kinds of projects to touch and see!
Judi and Sherri are sporting some of their beautiful knits. Sherri is responsible for getting me on the basket binge. ;)
I enjoyed the immersion in color and design... and being surrounded by such creative sistas-of-the-yarn-love!
You can tell by that smile on my face I was enjoying myself! And, I was enjoying this latest knit: Espenson by Cirilia Rose. Details on Ravelry here. FUN piece to wear! The Noro Taiyo is a perfect combination of cotton, silk and wool. Soft and colorful. Big, comfortable FUN. EASY knit.
It has been a frenzy of preparation to start the LAST phase of this remodel. We had a week delay on the inside, but they started on the outside last week! Yea! I am looking forward to the finish line one of these days!
Well, I hear workers pulling up outside... the rain has stopped. So back to it!!
Blessings to all ~ tanna
