Busy getting ready to tie the knot on Tuesday. Feeling a bit frazzled but very happy. Have been knitting sporadically as my hands allow. I am working on the "Percy" handbag by Cheryl Niamath. The pattern can be found on Ravelry.com or directly at Knitty.com.

Just finished a blanket for my grand niece who will be named Violet. It took me some time to knit (a few rows a day). My hands aren't cooperating - oh wait this is a no whining zone...
The pattern is NMCRS Basketweave Blanket pattern by Cathy Waldie. You can find the free pattern on Ravelry.com.

I traveled to Wild & Woolly in Lexington, MA last week. I will be sending out to my follower winners hopefully this week. I am so darn slow to get things done in this beautiful weather :-)
LOVE W & W in Lexington - super selection and I lose track of time when I'm there...

It's so sad to add a new feature (Followers) to your blog and see it empty... Okay so it's only been 10 minutes. From the first 5 persons who follow my blog, I will choose two (including the 1st person) to receive a gift. Make sure to link to this posting on your blog so I can see what you might like and get your particulars on where to send. Have a safe and happy weekend! Jant

I sent out my trade for the ATC theme this month. One is based on NE India. The verses are "Amazing Grace" in Garo. The stamp from a friend from ASSAM mailed from Guwahati. This card is 2.5 " x 3.5". The other cards are made from elements of a card received from China for New Year greetings and silk upholstery material (2 x 2 inch) that I love. The simple Chinese is "CAT" for my friend Cat. That card is 1x1 inch...

I don't sew on the faces but leave them blank - on this particular bunster you can see a slip knit mistake that happens to almost look like a nose. I wasn't about to go back and fix it - yikes...
I need to take more pictures of finished items and new yarn stash. For everything that is posted it is primarily found on Ravelry.com

September's theme for ATC-USA International was Rust or Brown. Since I couldn't decide, I did both. For brown I did "Love is Like Chocolate" - 5 layers of chocolately goodness.

It is rather difficult to see here - the flowered column has been duplicated, cut and popped 3-D.

How many of you out there are becoming addicted to knitting lace - any lace no mater how simple or the materials used. I made a couple of these simple lace scarves for "Scarves From the Heart".
Nice, soft and lightweight - quick and enjoyable to knit.
There is I'm sure a stitch name for this pattern - if there is I don't know what it is.
Here is a simple recipe for this scarf.
I use Classic Elite Princess Yarn (soft and yummy)
US Size 11 needles
CO 15 or 17 (odd number)
There is one pattern row: k1, *yo, k2tog* to end
Repeat this row until desired length; Loosely Bind off ... TA DA
