American Wool Series

So somebody flipped a switch and it's Fall. Just like that *snaps fingers* and I'm already planning oodles of hand knits. Oodles, I tell ya. I've got a sweater in the works - the Bailey Cardigan by Amy Christoffers. This baby is knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca and I have to tell you, the yarn is so smooshably soft that it doesn't even bother me that I have to knit 16 inches before splitting off the fronts and backs. It's that good.  I have pictures to share but not enough time to do it tonight, but soon, I promise!

My mom is coming to visit this weekend and I have an actual full weekend to hang out and be with my family. Hurray! Can you believe that? Two. Full. Days. Someone bring me my smelling salts! I feel a fit of the vapors coming on.

My first night of class is tomorrow. I got my dates all mixed up and thought the first day of class was Thursday but, no, it's Wednesday. My emotional readiness is lacking but it's only one night so I can deal.

Thanks to everyone for their feedback on the new Fall cornucopia of patterns. I can't wait to get started on some of them. And Chris? Thanks for saying that you love a certain designer's work so much you want to punch him. It made me laugh out loud and feel glad that I'm not the only one that has such a, ahem, violent reaction to awesome knitwear.


  1. Yay for fall! And yay for having some quality time with the fam! Say hello to Mary for me :) And buena suerte on class, you'll rock it <3
