Although we're having record temperatures in the south, my thoughts are turning to fall, hopes of a continued quiet hurricane season, and some new projects.
My fall theme will be color. I succumbed to the press given the Kauni Cardigan. I wavered for a moment and then jumped on the bandwagon. I have not tried fair isle since I knit my son a jumper when he was a baby. More on that another time.
A Knit Picks package came today and in it are the makings of Jered's Red Light Special. This will be my first real attempt at Norwegian type color work.
The Kauni Cardi, of course. That is really cheating though as the colors appear as if by magic using 2 strands of the wool. I had practice knitting with two strands while knitting the Storm Water Shawl.
For now I am working on Bianca's Jacket. The back and the fronts are complete. My hope is to cast on both sleeves and knit them in tandem. I just invested in a riot of 32" circs from KnitPicks.
After our successful trip to the west-coast, my traveling partner and I decided to take in SAFF , the Biltmore, autumn leaves and a wild blogger meetup in the Blue Barn. Our BYOL (libation) is still in question. We hope to see Scarlet, Christine, Jennifer and a host of other blogger/Ravelry crew. We scored a room at the Asheville Renaissance and will have our walking shoes packed, drinks at the ready, and our eyes on the new yarns.
