Wednesday words and wisdom





Wanna?  
Work on spring and summer. This  is Rain by shibui and their new patterns are in.  This top looks simple and elegant ?


The 

new shibui rain fiber is in at my ,lys. 
Their patterns look straightforward and dare I say easy.  


Want to hear how my sister LOVED her Denver Bronco fingerless?  WOW.  She more than loved them.The yarn was all that others said it was: not great.  A bit slippery.  
liked  to twist upon itself 
.  
So I would never but it again but for acrylic for a fingerless gift it had enough good points. 

Onward


Winner!   I was surprised to see the pointer win Westminster last night.  
Fun thing

That's a really cute top, but I'm guessing with that open back, you would have to wear a cami under it?

The yarn looks a lot like Euroflax. Doesn't it feel crunchy like the Euroflax?

I like the top, but the front neckline would bother me. Perhaps, I could turn it around and wear it as a vest.

That top is gorgeous. I had one like it, save for mine being solid in closed in the bag. I literally wore it out. This would be a great, swift project --- and you could wear the top either way around!

Pretty pattern - pretty yarn!

Ooo. Shibui is so pretty, I've never knit with it and yes, the pattern is very very clean and pretty. It's one that I would knit but be unable to wear. It would make a great gift! Hmm ...

I LOVE this!! Wanted the German Shepard to win because it was from Wisconsin :) did you see that hungry leonberger? Haha. My fave.

That yarn is very pretty. That mossy green is luscious. I missed the dog show.. we were watching the Grammys. Some good stuff and some really awful stuff. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

That's a very pretty top. I wonder if you could turn it around and wear it the other way too? I'm glad to hear your sister like her fingerless gloves. Go Broncos! I didn't watch either the dog show or the Grammys. Not even sure what I did! But I know I was knitting whatever it was. Blessings, Betsy

Isn't it fun when people LOVE their knitted gifts! My brother with thrilled with his Green Bay Packers socks, making all those hours of boring knitting totally worth it!

Pretty top and pretty new yarn colors. So spring. I am so ready....

Pretty top for a runway model; me, not so much.
It does look like lovely yarn, though.
I'm glad your sis loved the mitts-how could she not!

Love the top.....nothing like a straight forward and easy pattern. It does look very elegant.

I just want to reach into the photo and touch that yarn. Wish we had a LYS in our village but probably just as well we don't.... Looks like a great top pattern - so simple and elegant.

Shall have to go back and look at the fingerless gloves....

Hope you're having a good week Kathy!

That is a gorgeous sweater, I think you should make it with that beautiful yarn.
Hugs,
