Seemingly Quiet

It's been a little quiet on the blog lately, but there has been tons going on:

Rain at Stitch n' Pitch

On September 25th, I went to Stitch n' Pitch and sat out in the rain as the Mets pulled a 7-6 victory in the top of the 9th out of their bats. Kimberly, Anna, and Randi were my fellow brave stitchers, with photo credits going to Burt. Notice all the empty seats around? It was miserable, and cold! But they won - for us knitters of course! Too bad they didn't make it into the playoffs :(

New Design 1

Here is a new neoknits pattern in the works. Sweater and pattern are all finished, just waiting for a nice day to photograph! I hope to have this released by the end of the week.

New Design 2

And here is a second neoknits pattern in the works. This cashmere cardigan is just waiting for a collar. I really love the simple texture stitch on this one.

First hand dyed yarn

I also took my first dip into hand dying this week. I received this kit from Rita at Castlefibers in a Hillary Debt reduction swap a little while ago. The sock yarn is really yummy and I think for my first try, I didn't do too bad. The dye took well and didn't run a bit when rinsing. The red was supposed to be a purplish red, but it didn't quite come out that way - maybe it's Queens water! The other color in the kit was green, so I just decided to leave the other half white. I separated the skein evenly so I can finally have a go at some toe up socks.

Sea Tangles Sleeve

And last but not least, finally a progress shot of Sea Tangles! I've only been working on this between projects, but it's fairly slow knitting. I love the Habu Stainless Steel/Silk yarn and how it holds its shape, moves and bends. The photo doesn't do the yarn justice by any means.
