First off, I'm going to apologize if my formatting for this post looks a little strange. I am blogging from my iPad while I'm on vacation and I'm finding it a little limiting.
July was for N in my LYS's AlphaKal. We had to choose a pattern yarn or colourway that started with N. I had planned to make a a Noro and Ultra Alpaca vest for my husband. The July heat quickly taught me that that plan was made of crazy.
In the end, I made a lovey cowl from some Louisa Harding Grace Silk and Wool I had in my stash. My only annoyance is that I had three skeins and this cowl only used two. But really, the Noble Cowl pattern is free and made a quick satisfying lace knit.
I'm not sure who this one will be for but I think I will use it to start a collection of spare giveaway knits... If I don't keep it for myself.
Favourite Things: I'm thinking of ending my blog posts by letting you know something that got me feeling excited, happy or grateful.
This week it's Knit City. This knitting gathering (conference? retreat?) is being held the last weekend in October in Vancouver. Class registration went online yesterday. I have registered for a class with the Yarn Harlot!! I am so excited. I am going for the weekend with a couple of knitting friends and I can't wait. This is the first thing that has gotten me looking forward to Fall. Yay!
