This n' That



Thanks for all your comments on cold and warm. It has been great fun reading all the responses. You guys are true originals, each and every one!

And, if you haven't yet entered, scroll on down to the last post and join in the fun. I won't close out the contest until Wednesday.

Morocco continues to grow in length. No new pictures just yet. I know you're waiting. I know you're smitten. I'm knitting as fast as I can. It is wonderful the way so many of you have taken her to heart. I promise you all...

She will be worth the wait.

Consolation prize: pictures of a new scarf design for Woolen Rabbit in Kim's new Opulence yarn, a sportweight combination of silk and merino.


Without further ado, I present...



Berry Basket

(Color isn't true in this shot. For some reason it came out way more blue than the actual yarn.)



that's better...



Details:







grape arbor border














basketweave edging









berry stitch main body





And now, I'm off to visit #1 son's new digs for the first time, and mail off patterns to Knitty Noddy.

Here's one for the road...

for my brother David, who kindly sent me the hat...
(Thanks, Bro!)

and for all my other New York readers...

GO GIANTS!

Oooh pretty! I like Morocco but I think I'm gonna love Berry Basket (with a Ravelry username like mine how could I not?) I sure love that yarn. You made me hunt for that yesterday you know. You're not doing due diligence as an enabler if you leave out the linkage. ;)

YAY someone else who's rooting for the Giants :) I was born & grew up in NYC, so I think my dad would never forgive me if I cheered for anyone else this year hehe.

Holy moly, what a difference in color! I wonder why that happens. That's coming out really pretty.

Berry is looking berry lovely. :-) It's really hard getting that color red to photograph, don't you think? I think you did a great job!
