I have been on a short trip to NYC, hence no time for knitting. However when having to sit in a plane for quite a few hours, one need something to knit on.
I've starded a new cardi on my way to NYC The cardi is based upon a pattern from Dale (published a few years ago). The main pattern is quite easy to knit and hence rather boring. Yarn - as always - not Dale but Wollmeise.
However Christmas is approaching and back home I have to put the cardi aside and start knitting on presents. I've started on this dress on Monday. Still it is quite ordinary, but please pop in in a day or two and then you will see that my plan is to make it everything but ordinary.
It is knitted with one strand Wollmeise and one strand KidSilkHaze.
I've been to NYC and of course visited a few places to buy yarn. I was not that impressed with the shops. However I did find Purl Soho and Knitty City as places that I would revisit on my next trip (hopefully in April - if we do not decide to stay in DC). I did not buy lots and lots of yarn, only a few skeins of the lovely Jade Sapphire and a few skeins of indy dyers.
It's My Birthday
