Amelia's Libby

Finally finished a sweater for Amelia. The pattern is Libby, by Leslie. I really enjoyed knitting up this sweater. I haven't blocked it yet, but that's ok. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I used Cascade 220 Sport yarn and loved how it turned out. If there was an adult size, I would totally knit it up!
Enjoy your week!

This is "Dickens", a pattern from Berroco, knit up in Blackstone Tweed Chunky. I started it in February and took about  2 weeks to finish. It's a quick and easy knit. I wear it alot! It's perfect for layering under another sweater or coat or wearing on a nice day when it's a bit windy!
Have a wonderful day!

Happy New Year!!

 Happy New Year and Welcome 2012! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Holiday with some relaxation to go along with all the excitement and hustle bustle. Our family had a quiet and restful holiday, but it's back to the usual routine tomorrow. My mom sent me some wonderful yarn from her LYS for Christmas and I just had to share some of it. This colourful ball is called Florcitas and it looks like it has tiny little vines growing out of it! One skein knits up a very cozy cowl and it knits up fast...about 1 hour. I started in the afternoon of New Year's Eve, finished it and wore it all night.
Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!
