Cherry Tree Hill swing coat

Hello again. Yes, it’s actually me! I haven’t written since May! Wow, where did the summer go!?!

Finally, here are those promised photos of my swing coat that I sent to Cherry Tree Hill for their design contest. It looks great on my friend Ellen!

I am still in the process of writing the pattern. . . I want to make one that fits me! I really love working with this sock yarn. The colors are so nice and vibrant and the feel of the fabric is luscious!

I’ve been busy knitting lace scarves for the MN Textile Center Artwear Show boutique. For the last 2 years I have had pieces in the runway show, but not this year. However, I will have my hand knit sweaters and many lace items for sale at the boutique that coincides with the Runway show.

This is the perfect time of year to knit! I love, love, love, it. I started a new sweater for myself from a wool/silk blend yarn from Blackberry Hills. Though it is hard to find time to knit for myself, I deserve this one. I’m knitting it from the neck down and it will have cable pattern repeated around the body. The sleeves will be reverse stockinette with the cable design down the center of the sleeve and cables for the cuffs. I love the tweedy look of this dark green yarn. Mmm, mmm, good!

Well, I’m going back to my knitting and I promise to write again soon. (before 5 months have passed anyway:))
