Art Walk Sock Club & Varia

It's here! The August installment of the Art Walk Sock Club" called Toreador! The photo below includes a fabric I've been planning to use to make myself a very special Grand Mera bag...which won't be on my "to do" list for several months...

My photo isn't great. But those shades of melon to salmon with milk chocolate and caramel are just to-dye for! :) I'm just happy happy happy ! What great colors...

I was so in love that immediately grabbed the fabric to see that the colors are the same...so I asked Roxanne to dye up a skein of this same wool/bamboo blend in her Icy Blues colorway. What will I make? At the moment I'm thinking something along the lines of the Chevron Scarf - except that I've got to get Diana's pattern she used, as it doesn't curl in upon itself. Won't that be all spiffy - a scarf and tote in perfect, matching shades? You really need to join up with the Art Walk Sock Club - it's a month-by-month commitment so you can opt out if you need to...(which I might have to do now that I've done the equivalent of two for September with the Icy Blues!!!) lololol!

I also wanted to thank everyone for their comments on the Lacy Prairie Shawl - it's from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle. I have more Peace Fleece on the way for another shawl from the book! (I cannot help myself, I love this yarn...)

And then...(as if that's not enough?) I joined Anne of Green Gables KAL and read-along for October...I am ashamed to admit that this series I have never read! No, I don't yet know what I'll knit along with...but it shouldn't be all that hard, right? Socks? Scarves? Shawls? Mitts? I'm sure something I like to knit will be appropriate! Want to re-read an old favorite? Or like me, didn't get to read this as a girl? Come join us!

Is Diana's pattern a freebie cause I would love it too! I have some scarves in my future and I'd love for them to stay scarf-y, not tube-y. :)

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
