Finally got around to having modeled photos taken of items knit for myself over the last few months. At top is the Vest with Deep Rib by Irina Poludnenko, made with Tahki Donegal Tweed.
Grizzly by Elizabeth Smith, made with Berroco North Star. I saw this yarn and sample vest at the Berocco trunk show at the guild last year, and loved the soft puffy yarn. I've worn both of these a lot.
Debbie Bliss's Triangular Scarf is so cozy. The color of the Boheme yarn is hard to capture.
Here's the wool swing coat I ordered on sale from Nordstrom. D and I had been talking about our need for what I call 'funeral coats', and this will do in colder weather.
I'm excited to be working on a project with Pat L from the guild. She and I will be coordinating a year-long Rhode Island afghan KAL for the guild. We've been searching for RI-themed patterns in our pattern stashes, Ravelry, and other online sources. Dishcloth patterns are the perfect size, and you can find just about anything pictured on them. We'll be making and blocking samples of squares, and members who choose to participate can make all or just a few of them to make what they want, from a dishcloth to a pillow to a baby blanket to a full size afghan.
I was also excited to see that Berroco Modern Cotton has a ton of colorways with RI names! So naturally I picked that yarn for my afghan. Fortunately it's worsted weight and should block to the right size, though it feels lighter weight than worsted. The colors above, L to R, are: Hope, Rhode Island Red, Wetherill, Tiverton, Napatree, and Little Compton.
Meanwhile, Tuffy does occasionally get off 'his' new footstool to go on alert for dogs in the backyard.
