Thursday

Quickly...

... popping in!
I have a deadline looming so I am doing all I can to avoid distractions by anything bright and shiny. But.....

Knitting Daily's Wednesday mailing included not only a free pattern from Simple Style for the beautiful Twisted-V Pullover designed by Alice Halbeisen....

but also the first photograph I have seen of the design I contributed to Ann Budd's latest production!
The Stay-Put Wrap is pretty close to being an instant gratification project. Knit on 10us/6mm needles in yummy Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes, it is a low stress, almost mindless knitting project that creates an "impact garment" that goes with jeans and a T--- my choice--- or that LBD.
Even though Amazon has April as the publishing date it has arrived wonderfully early and is available now!!!!
I am really pleased with how the final project looks in print. I appreciate the “serenity” of the model… ahhhhh... simple... style...
