We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Project

March 30, 2013

…to bring you something new.  Lace.  And Cashmere.  Yum.

Two weeks ago, I saw this yarn at the store.  We have previously carried the Art Yarns Cashmere 1, but I hadn’t seen it in the gorgeous teal we now had in the store.  (My photo does not do the color justice.)  Of course I had to have it.  Two of it, actually.  I want a long scarf and wasn’t willing to sacrifice width for length.  Instead, I sacrificed some dinero.

I was itching to cast it on.  Forget the fact that I am in the home stretch of a sweater and have two linen stitch scarves on the needles.  Tonight I casted on and did a full repeat of the pattern.  It is soooo nice.  Sooooo soft.  I’m going to put it down for now to finish my sweater, but I’m excited to get back to it.  Did I mention how soffffft it is?

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
