So............. the sweater still isn't put together. With the heat index it is 105 here today, I am really in no hurry! I did however receive my new yarn lust........... Lustra from Berroco.
the Tencel in the mix makes it shiny, uber soft and just yummy! LOVE this yarn and can't wait to knit with it. As Cirilia says, this yarn may well be overshadowed with the other fabulous fall yarns but I think it will come out strong with many knitterly fans.
Also received the fabric I couldn't resist. Fat quarters of really fun fabric (Alexander Henry of course, who else does such tongue in cheek novelties?)---- in pink and black. Skulls impaled with knitting needles and scissors......... and sewing and knitting 'storyboards' as it were.
Knitmare on Elm is above---- check out the knitting needles as chopsticks, the kid in the too small sweater, the dog eating the yarn, and the skeleton giving up on the sweater. LOVE this fabric----- now what will it grow up to be??? I think maybe the pink skulls and needles will have to be a little frock for the newly groomed little girl dog!
Lastly, I can't decide what sweater the Lustra will evolve into, your help please???? The pattern is still a couple weeks from printing so I have a little time to make up my mind. (Not to mention finish the ongoing cabled cardi!) The choices follow........
My first choice is above, Listeme. Gorgeous! But I'm second guessing myself because I love
----- Lexical. Sort of Channelly, but so much more updated and (dare I say it) hip!
I have enough delicious Lustra to knit either............. but which one????
I know you are hanging out waiting for last week's knitting bride. Catch her tomorrow before I head out to wrangle tomorrows bride!
