Good Morning! I am looking forward to a beautiful weekend, and a shipment of Madelinetosh arriving this afternoon! I completed my first of 5 hats to knit before Christmas. Sabi Hat by Olga Buraya-Kefelian Madelinetosh Vintage - Terra I loved knitting this! At the beginning it took me a bit to get the pattern down. (It helped when I read the directions correctly :) After that it was speedy. I highly recommend this knit! I love the herringbone zigzag pattern, and I have been thinking of blankets, leg warmers, mittens and scarves that would look great with this design! Sabi is textured and very stretchy, so it fits all of us! Not sure who this is for just yet, but Ry modeled it for me this morning. Yesterday Kara announced her new pattern Alpine Throw. In the afternoon I cast on with some stash yarn I had. I love the pattern! I'm especially excited that it is completely reversible! With the seed stitch edge and chevron design it will look awesome on either side! The Alpine Throw will make a perfect Christmas gift and I already know who it is going to!
