This is Liz. She is wearing the sweater she knit:
Coloratura on Ravelry.
She used Claudia's Handpaint.
This sweater is knit in strips.
I can knit strips. It has no buttons.
I don't like knitting button holes or sewing buttons.
But remember yesterday's post ….I swore off sweaters.
I think I better stick to that for at least a month..
Thanks to all of you who shared in my failures.
I'm not alone. I felt much better and stopped licking my wounds…
This amazing sunset was Friday's unexpected treat.
Nevermind the sun is no longer working overtime round here.
She's still beautiful coming up and going down.
Lest you think I can see the sunset easily from our congested little suburb, I have to tell you: This was taken from the prairie that is preserved just so we can have a sunset over the horizon spot. I'm still romanticizing farm life….and big skies ….
The only farming around here is my garden.
I'm very cheap. Very cheap.
I purposely plant orange flowers so in the fall I'm color coordinated. I plant dark coleus in pots so they look great with pumpkins beside them.
My moss roses are all orange and they look the part right now.
We have a perennial called, indian flower
that is autumn colors as well.
Our spring is full of blue irises, blue columbine,
purple hyacinth, pink peonies, yellow daffodils and a pink lily.
When they fade for the season, it is great to have my oranges, rusts, and yellows in place for a strong fall showing.
My new knit project is the above cowl in different colors.
My model was explicit: she did not want to be in the image. So sorry about your chin. Hope you are unidentifiable!
Have you felt Road to China light yarns?
Oh my oh my. It's soft beyond soft.
This pattern is a shop pattern.
It is garter after garter after garter in two color blocks.
The trim is I cord edging picked up all the way around in yet a third color.
I'm back in the saddle again!!
