A 2015 – 2018 Top 100 Knitting Blog!
Stephanie over at Space Cadet Yarns was kind enough to feature our new Granite Lake Shawl in her newsletter this week.
You can find it here at: https://spacecadetyarn.com/2017/07/05/newsletter-getting-back-work/
I’ve been following her blog and ogling her yarn for a good while now. If you’re looking for fun and knitting then this is the place. Just check out these colors! And these are only a few of them. I knew I had some in my stash waiting to figure out what it wanted to be (I have a lot of yarn waiting to talk to me). I do, it’s the DK weight Merino.
What’s up for the rest of the summer?
Now that the Granite Lake Shawl is published (it was in the top 5 for Ravelry for 4 days so thanks!). I’m preparing to change direction. While I do have a number of other Showy Garter designs almost ready to go they are fall or winter projects. Soooo we’re going in a new direction with a summer top that introduces … wait for it … yes, yet another way to use the Showy Decrease. You’re shocked I know.
Here’s the schedule for the next few blog posts, although I reserve the right to go off on a tangent at any time.
It’s going to be a great summer. Hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July.
Just for kicks, I thought I would share this photo of my husband yesterday. We had so much snow this winter that Squaw Valley is still open for skiing. With all the crazy holiday traffic he decided the motorcycle was the way to go so he attached his skis to his backpack!
I’m surprised I could stop laughing enough to take the photo. Also shown in the photo are my son who will be modeling one of the Showy Garter projects for the fall, our dog Domino and my garden which is happily not covered in snow.
