What’s Happening

Since I finished my Garter Yoke Cardi & another sweater I made for Matt is in the “set in the zipper stage” I got to cast on a new project. My friend Lori & I had decided awhile back to knit the men in our lives the Cambridge Jacket from Interweave Knits Summer 2006.

The pattern calls for Cascade 220 but Matt didn’t find a color he loved at our local shop so they suggested this Ella Rae Classic yarn & he picked this shade of green. This Romanian yarn has been wonderful to work with & is an exact substitute for 220.

I’m about 12 inches into the back, the ribbing pattern keeps it a little more interesting than straight stockinette. Of course, we are now heading into warm weather & he won’t need this sweater until at least September.

I finished a new embroidered pillow last week with a spray of Queen Anne’s Lace on it.

One of my Flickr contacts took a beautiful silhouetted shot of Queen Anne’s Lace earlier this year & it inspired me to draw up this embroidery pattern. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m really happy with how it turned out because I’m really not much of an artist when it comes to drawing.

This pillow is now available in my Etsy store. I also have plans for a matching one with a whole field of Queen Anne’s Lace.

If you’d like a little peek into my craft space HandmadeMN just did an article on it here.

    • Very nice. I find once I get past the knitting stage, it’s like pulling teeth to finish it off. You’d think I’d want to see the final product…

      The embroidery on the pillow is beautiful – delicate and fresh.
