i finally got around to taking some photos of my stuff this week. i’ll post them periodically throughout the next couple of days so as not to overwhelm you all.

here is the progress on the Shedir Cabled Cap from knitty.com. As you can imagine its a little slow-going and very mentally engaging…. not always my preference when i’m wanting a little zen time with my needles. but i have been working on and off and the finish line is in sight. i think i’ll try to complete it this week. its made with Rowan Calmer and is soft and streeeetchy.

i also finally purchased some karaoke to experiment with. two skeins – so not enough for a scarf but i may purchase more. the color is Rust and it was my first purchase from knitpixie

i knitted up a test swatch trying out various stitches and guages to get a feel for the yarn and see what looked good. The photo is a bad representation of the subtle color shifts…. which is too bad for you! because they’re great!
