Behind the Scenes

The Bumblebee is modelling (unreluctantly once again) our newest craft table project.  My sister and I whipped up a dozen of these head scarves last weekend in multiple sizes.  We really do have something for everyone.  Funny thing is we only asked her to try it on, and we never got it back.  I insisted that we needed it for our craft table, and she threw us a fiver and told us it was SOLD.   Our first sale!!  The pattern can be found in Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing book.  I LOVE this book.

And I've delved into the fair-isle yoke!  I found the two shades of purple in my underbed stash.  They are Noro Cash Iroha, and I am not sure that I should have used them.  Maybe I should have stuck with a similar ply as the Patons Classic Merino Wool as the cream, green and paprika.  Regardless, there will be no frogging - just knitting full steam ahead.  I wouldn't be surprised if I am finished this sweater in the next week.  Just in time for the summer. :)

LMAO! That B! She so rocks!

Dude you'll be done the sweater before the summer? Didn't you do that last year as well? Still, it's better than working on it *in* the summer. That just makes for something schwetty.

and my word is: durde - LOL
