What's Happening

Summer is moving along at a quick pace once again. My oldest brother and sister-in-law, who are from Nebraska, just spent a few days visiting with us after finishing their Alaskan cruise. We are now getting ready for a trip to Ontario, visiting Ottawa, Toronto, friends and family!
While at a knitting store in Vancouver a while back, I noticed one of the ladies with her knitting out on the table. She had the neatest looking stitch markers, which were actually those tiny colourful hair bands that you can buy at the dollar store. I am now the owner of 750 tiny colourful hairbands!
Hope you are enjoying your summer so far!

Radian Yoke

My Radian Yoke is completed! It was waiting patiently after being block for a chance to have it's picture taken, unfortunately though, the weather was not co-operating with us. While most of the country is experiencing a heat wave, our weather on the west coast has been on the cool and rainy side. Similar to fall weather, I heard someone say.

I'm pleased as to how my Radian Yoke turned out, even Natalie (who will be 15) wants to wear it. I loved knitting the lacy bit. A fun little knit for summer!

Pattern: Radian Yoke, from Knitscene Summer 2011

Size: 36

Yarn: Berroco Pure Pima, colour# 2225

You can make one too...there's still time.
Have a wonderful day!

summer knitting

I've been doing some summer knitting and I'm almost done, all I need to do is block it! The pattern is the Radian Yoke in the summer issue of Knitscene. It's been a fun little knit that's knit from the top down. I used Berroco's Pure Pima in colour #2225, which is a pretty robin's egg blue. More to come after blocking.....see you soon!
