Wednesday, July 11


not the best shot for showing off the lace detail, but it is still early so you'll get better shots later. i just thought it was funny that as i was knitting on my deck, everything around me was the same green as the yarn!

pattern was a one skein pattern from the lys tour called the touring wrap. if you click on the patterns link at the top of the screen you can download the free pattern. it happened to be designed by my friend ellen who works at vyt. i am really enjoying it. very good beginner's lace pattern i think. and the suri blue by fleece artist is lovely yarn.

btw, it is just too hot in seattle. central air is looking very appealing now. too bad i don't think they can rig it up in my condo. it would be worth every penny on these hot days.

What a pretty color! I love green.

I was thinking to myself this morning that it has been a mild summer here in Fallbrook,Ca so far. We've had a couple days where it has been hot but not like last year. I bet now that I put that out in the universe it will be hot tomorrow!

What a loverly pattern! I've been thinking about designing some more lacy wraps since my first two have been somewhat successful! Yours is looking so pretty in green. Come on in - we are air conditioned!

Oh, that is such a lovely shade of green and what a beautiful stitch pattern.

Yeah for knitting that just "clicks"!

BTW, I'm sorry about the heat for ya. I bet you guys aren't use to this much heat for this amount of time. I'll be thinking cool thoughts for you (while I'm doing the same for myself).

Great looking wrap! I seem to be buying, spinning and knitting a lot of things in that green this year. Can't wait to see it finished.

Amy, I just love that green and I'm not a green loving person. I grabbed the pattern and I might just have to figure out how to get it into the rotation.

Sorry about the heat. Texas is so hot and humid that most of the time (as lone as the Ac works) I just don't notice anymore.

Sending cooler weater your way via the internets.....

Oh Amy that looks lovley!!! I might have to find a suitable yarn in the UK and that could be my project for my trip to see my friends on the Greek Island, Zakynthos next month!
Adds yarn hunting on internet for list of things to do this weekend! Think the rain is hitting the south coast of England again.....

I bought the same color for this wrap but the beginning of the pattern confuses me and makes me not want to start!

Since Tava and I have this bizarre green fixation together, I ALSO have that same shade for the wrap. Unlike her, and due to her - she started me knitting after all, I'm not so much befuddled by the pattern, just the matter of time... Hope I see you before I split the country!

Looks so...inspiring! Maybe I'll get mine cast-on for stitch-n-pitch! You did get your tickets, right? I really, really want to cast on but I had to wait till I finished my homework for the Nihon Vogue class! I'm there so...maybe today. I just keep looking at yours and remembering what it looked like in person! So lovely.

Ah, knitting on the deck in the shade on a sunny day sounds absolutely divine! Especially with all that green surrounding you! The pattern looks interesting, I may have to check that out :)

Hi, I was googling "touring wrap" and found your website. It's beautiful! I just bought my yarn at VY&T, but I still need needles. What kind are you using? I can't wait to get started! I'm looking forward to seeing your finished one too, it nice seeing it in different colors (all I've seen so far is the store sample). Thanks!

I love the green and the way it picks up the light from the surroundings. looking forward to seeing a full picture! I really want to get into lace knitting but it seems quite daunting. Perhaps this would be a good beginning..?
