Anybody here lucky enough to see the Stephen and Steven tour this summer? I wish I were one of them. They are doing a 2 full day workshop in NYC at the end of the month as part of Vogue Knitting Live. Wouldn’t that be a dream trip? Four or five days in Manhattan, huge knitting conference, and the city to enjoy when you need a break from the show. My idea of sheer heaven.
I’d love to try out one of these cowls with button holes. I looks pretty with the bottom one undone, doesn’t it?
I found these in the beautiful new library! Great way to see if a book is worth it for me to purchase. I was mostly excited about that Town and Country book. I heard the patterns were not very well written, so I’m going to try out a couple accessories and see how they come out.
Did you hear about the new Harry Potter series that’s coming out? I am quite excited to hear about it, and definitely can’t wait to see what wonderful things JK Rolling comes up with this time. Wouldn’t this be the most perfect, perfect sweater to wear to see it? Especially if you could intarsia knit one of those cables in white.
From the Jimmy Beans Cupcakes Collection. I’ve been swatching that little package of yarns to see what I do and don’t like in there. It is a good way to try out some stuff, but it’s a little bit pricey. Still, I think the concept is good.
Time to do a little Swatching. #knit #knitting #yarn #red (at Va Beach)
I bought one of these cute cupcake multi packs from Jimmy Beans Wool. I really, really like Cascade products. I think it’s my favorite everyday yarn at this point. If I can find beautiful and affordable chunky weight yarn, I may switch from craft yarn altogether. It has as much to do with supporting American business and small business as anything else. I’m really trying to do a better job on watching where I purchase the products and from whom.
Anyway, I think this is a great idea, and it’s adorable with the packaging. I’ve knitting up 3 swatches so far. It is a great way to try out a selection of new things, though I with the skiens were a bit bigger. It’s a pricey piece to purchase, but I’ve been looking at them for a while. I think the Unicorn Tales may be next on list of products to try out.
This is the beginning of my fascination with fairytale imagery. I’m not really sure now how I came up with the idea of holding the apples. I have to think about that. Since then, I’ve done several photography sessions and used fruits in all of them. It’s definitely my signature look.
Another great infinity cowl and a shrug. Again, these are photographed for Arty Lou for her etsy shop. Both really lovely pieces. I think they look as good in Black and White as they do in color. I would like to make up a selection of these infinity cowls for my own fall and winter portrait sessions. They just add so much to the pictures.
