Dusk and Sangria

Thought I'd share a few things that are just sitting around the ol' crib. I was thrilled to make a brief stop at the Kniterary in Whitby this weekend (thanks Mom & Jay). The shop is so quaint and Martina is so friendly and the yarn totally rocks. Inspired by Amy R. Singer's Montana Bay Scarf in Summer 07's Interweave, I was enchanted by the Sea Silk. Handmaiden has such exquisite yarns. I believe this skein's colour may be Sangria. Salud!

Three Glasses Full

Last night I headed to Lettuce Knit, with my brand new lawn chair in tow, for some knitting, tinking, friends and guffaws. There I met up with a very special someone.....

Dusk

Thanks to Lisa! She surprised me with a coupla monster-ass skeins of this groov-a-licious Cherry Tree Hill Jumbo Loop Mohair. To entice me in some co-captain-ness for Team West in the TTC KAL(have u signed up yet?); as an incentive to get me up good and early on a Saturday morning (only for Lisa and Team West! Go TW!!); and to console me for the loss of Goldie 2.

Oh yeah!

This mohair madness will soon be known as, Dusk, a glorious triangle shawl. Garter, increase, garter. Cheers. Brainlessly brilliant! We hope to be ready for the Collingwood Elvis Festival! Now, that's a hunka hunka burnin' yarn!

It's kind of creepy how it seems to be looking right at you no matter what angle you look at it from...
