SALE of the week and FO’s
Some of you may remember that a year ago my lovely little son was born! We have recently just returned from a family reunion where we celebrated his birth and family in general – it was a GREAT time, and I can hardly believe how old my two babies are (Bohdan and Baaad Anna’s)! We traveled to the reunion on the train (Amtrak) and it was a fantastic experience – I actually had time to finish some overdue knitting!
Some of you may remember me blogging about some of the fantastic new spring/summer 2011 yarns and my planned projects – you can read more about it here. While we were gone I finally finished the Milo vest for Bohdan – it is a super popular project on Ravelry and I too would vouch for how fun/easy it is to knit, but also the serious cute factor! The various cable options make it super fun! I knit it up in the Noro Shirakaba, a fantastic Silk, Cotton, Wool blend!
I also recently finished knitting up the Darling sweater by Lousia Harding in her 16th Book “Kindred”. I knit this adorable sweater for my 8-yr old niece. I knit it up in the Diamond Luxury Cairo cotton. I really can’t say enough awesome things about this worsted weight, mercerized cotton! It has such a fantastic sheen to it, knits up really well and each skein has great meterage (167 m/ $9.95). The sweater will be hanging up at the store until it becomes a birthday present in October – come by and have a look!
