Mail Call!

I was surprised today to find the Interweave Knits Winter issue in my mail! (I keep having this problem of thinking it's still late summer, even if the temps are in the 20s at night and there's flurries all over the place...)
A fairly short perusal found The Ropes & Picots Cardigan as something I think I simply must knit...and in the Rowan Scottish Tweed DK, too! I just love the vertical lines of that cardigan. The two pair of socks are interesting (tho' they are both cuff-down, and we know I don't do those, right? Then there was Murano - the Trekking XXL scarf. The only thing making me think twice about that one, is that it's stockinette. Hmmm....Not sure I want a scarf that curls up on me, besides I do so love my Trekking on my feet!

Just so you don't think I've abandoned my sewing are a couple of new bags from this week:
Orders, both. And isn't the batik in front interesting? It's gray, pink, and taupe splashed across black - and it does indeed appear to be paintbrush splashes. A fascinating non-pattern. The interior is the gray with pink pockets.

And the crayon cat bag? A modified Mera for a friend who is a photographer. Everything has additional reinforcement and padding to protect expensive lenses and equipment. It turned out nicely, I think...

Now, tomorrow is Friday. Please, don't get too excited about it? YEE-haw!

I can't wait to get my new Interweave. Who knows it may be in the mailbox now. Our box is up the street and it's hard to convince hubby to go get it and I can't walk that much yet. :(

I made a Christmas gift scarf in stockinette stitch, but made it as a big tube. I knit it like a sock cuff, on two circs. At the end, putting the fringe on closed the ends. The directions called for putting the start of rounds on the edge of the scarf, so the stripe jogs are not noticeable.

Could the scarf you like be adapted to this kind of construction? It's double-warm, stitches are super-even knit in the round, and solves the rolling part.

Every time you write about a sweater you must make, I giggle :)

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.
