|Rusty by Susan Mills in Liberty Wool Light|
There's not much better than a long, slow weekend -- the cooking is done, the dishes all stowed away. The others in my house are occupied with shopping, reading and generally leaving me alone. So what do I want to do -- not much but knit & crochet, look at pictures of knitting and crocheting and talk to knitters and crocheters.
I got it into my mind to start a new project and decided whatever it was, it had to be a rectangle. I don't want to think about shaping, my own shape being a bit larger after Thanksgiving! So I took to the Classic Elite Yarns' archives to select some of my favorite rectangles.
Jill Wright's clever Ravenna poncho is crocheted in yummy Mohawk Wool.
Cathy Payson's Avera is a scarf. Or is it a shrug? It's both, and I love it both ways!
The super soft Arietta in yak & wool has great stitch definition while being positively plush.
Self-striping, washable Liberty Wool is always fun to work with. Susan Mills makes great use of it in the Molly Scarf.
Susan is prolific, so it's no surprise I also love her Haystack Shawl in Mohawk Wool.
If I keep touring the archives, I will never get anything on the needles! So I choose Pumpkin Pie -- maybe because I had carrot cake last night am regretting my decision. Whatever it takes, right?
I love the leaf motif that Tonia Barry incorporated in to this classic scarf called Pumpkin Pie. Knit in luscious Inca Alpaca.
What will you be working on this weekend?
