Spiritual Progress

I just love this time of year. The change in weather is my cue to pour over the pattern stash in search of the perfect holiday gift to make for loved ones and the perfect hat, scarf, or sweater to make for ME! But before my thoughts go crazy -I'm working to finish up some WIPs. Here's where I am on Southern Roots' Spiritual by Jeanne Bowers - it's done as a pillow cover and about 95% complete. I'm shooting to finish it this weekend.

My knitting mojo is also in full swing. I'm working on the Beachcomber Tunic again and I'm about 30% finished. Since it's a spring sweater, I'm not in a rush but definitely have it in rotation so there will be some decent pics soon. Also working on Leisure Arts Sampler Afghan. It's 60 pattern stitches - you choose 20 of them to design your own unique afghan. I'm only on the 4th square, but I'm enjoying the variety.

No knitting mojo is complete without new stash. My favorite man (the mailman) brought me a lovely package yesterday. It's the Uruguay DK on sale at Little Knits. A blend of merino, alpaca & silk with a full-bag price I couldn't resist. I fell for this beautiful purple as well as a khaki that can be used together or separately.


Let me go make some plans..........

Southern Roots' Spiritual is looking good and actually I can imagine the Beachcomber Tunic over a turtleneck for the winter. You got some great yarn and colors there, I’m actually working on a cardigan with Khamandu dk yarn, which is merino, alpaca & silk in tweed – color grape. I’m not sure if I really like the color now that half of its done…and its so hard to photograph.

Believe it or not we actually had a low of 40 here in Florida, which had me scrambling for pants for the youngest. Spiritual looks great.

I kinda like my mailman too! Sounds so desperate housewife right?
