Me! I know, I know! I'm never consistent with my knitting; but lately I have been. I think my knitting mojo has returned. Somehow, I've been finding the time to work on two new projects. I am feeling very productive, what a great feeling. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Susan B. Anderson at Knitty City. She had her new book, Itty Bitty Toys and samples from the book in tow. All of the samples were beautiful. My favorites from the book mostly included the Reversibles (two toys in 1). My favorite is The Lion & The Elephant. So cute! All of the reversibles use Vermont O-Wool Balance. I ordered & received a few skeins for the The Lion & The Elephant a few weeks ago. Last week, I decided to cast on. I ended up finishing the body and head for the lion. So far it's going very quickly.
Besides working on the reversible, I decided to cast on Blue Sky Alpacas Button Up Cowl by Kristen Rengren. I've been drooling over this cowl ever since I saw it knit up on Ravelry. I'm using some Madeline Tosh Sock in Oxblood that I've had in the stash for awhile. I'm really enjoying the pattern and the tonal changes in the colorway compliment the cables. I can't wait to see this complete.
Happy Knitting and Happy National Teachers Day! ♥
