My first attempt at gloves...

Here is the project I chose to make using that merino/mohair yarn from Juniper Moon Farms! It's called Treads, and you can find it at this lovely blog. The sideways braids are a little tricky to knit, but I think they are coming along ok! (my first attempt at a glove-type pattern) What do you think?

Started over a gift for Mom!

Hi guys!

Here is a project I'm working on. I'm making it as a (super!) late mama's day gift for my mama! The pattern is found at ravelry.com - the name of the pattern is "Tiger Eyes Lace Scarf", and it is by Toni M. Maddox. (Here it is if you don't feel like searching!)

The yarn I'm using is Paton's Silk Bamboo in the color Orchid. I kept forgetting to do the three stitch border (which isn't charted in the pattern), so I started over and added a picot edge all the way around!

In other news, I did get to check out the knit & crochet show here in Indianapolis over last weekend! I took some photos and did bring home a haul. Photos to come!

Stay tuned and spread love!
