Last night I grabbed some Berrocco Peruvia Quick and decided to knit up the Creeper from Rowan 38. Seriously one of the best Rowans I've ever purchased. I've knit several designs from it in the past few years and continue to go back to it. I should be working on other things, but I haven't knit in ages, so I'm giving myself this project.

Creeper is the sweater on the right.

Zig Zag Top

I designed this top and knitted it up over a year ago. I'm finally posting it. It doesn't fit me very well, but I started making a new one with a different color pattern and may finish it someday. :) I'm ready for the fall; hopefully we'll get one in Los Angeles this year. The weather cools off and the needles come out!

Twinkle Sews

Um... really? I have to wait til September for this? Ahhh!!! Looks good, I can't wait to check out this book from Wenlan Chia; I am, obviously, a fan. I guess it'll give me some time to actually figure out what I'm' doing with my sewing machine. Ha. So, I haven't been knitting much lately. This is an interesting time for me, but I promise, I will resume and start posting more projects soon. I have a completed design from last year and just have to photograph it and will get that up soon.

Sculptural Knitting

My new issue of Vogue Knitting came in the mail today, and there's a feature on a designer called Sandra Backlund. Her creations are awesomely unique. I want to make them all! I must be living in a bubble to have never heard of her before, but I had to share some of my favorites.

Patchwork Rug

I made these square patches a few years ago, just to keep me busy and they've been shelved for quite a while now. I've decided to make a rug out of them. They're pretty thick (three strands of worsted or chunkier held together) and I think it'd be cute on my hardwood floor, so I'm gonna do it. I have to decide how I want to stitch them together and then I'm off! Here are some pictures of how I might arrange them and some of the colors up close. I didn't use the same three strands of yarn on any two patches, so they're all totally unique.

I know I've been gone for a while, but I appreciate your continued support and comments! Happy new year and new president!
