Weddings and knitting...

Well, we are at the count down to the big day for Ashley and Cory, WOW! Saturday is rapidly approaching and all the little beans are so excited about this big event. I must confess that while I worked on a few things for the happy couple in a knitted format it hasn't come about, so they have been frogged :( Sorry guys, but I do have a special little something for you that I am hoping you will enjoy for years to come...enough said on that one. Hee Hee!

I have started a new project (imagine) that involves knitting Fair Isle and it is from the newest Rowan Magazine, #46. It is the Shetland woman's sweater and has a shawl color, subtle color changes and uses the new Rowan Felted Tweed Aran yarn. This yarn is FABULOUS, machine washable and comes in a Chunky weight too. My husband wants me to knit him the men's version of this sweater which is amazing (he is big), so using an aran weight is ok by me!

I have told you about my queue system of knitting and well, I have already fallen off the queue wagon so to speak, sheesh! I cast on a shawl with Helen's Lace by Lorna's Laces yarns last night, but have only done 2 rows, so I could rip it out and stick to my queue?? NOT! The colorway is one of our Limited Edition colors, 'Huck's Room' and it is so amazing! Stay tuned on that one....

I am also working on a double knit scarf in the new Berroco Blackstone Tweed yarn, from the Knit.1 magazine Spring/Summer 2009. Yes I am still working on my Knitting Pure and Simple, #294 sweater in the Oasis yarn and have just picked up the ribbing around the body.

So there are four projects right there and of course I have a hat that my son wants, another Hoot Hat to knit up, husband sweater, ok, ok, I know it already looks like the queue is shot to heck. What's a knitter to do?? Keep on knitting that's what I am gonna do, knit on!!

Happy Knitting! Jeanne
