Dollar And A Half

I started the beautiful Dollar and a Half Cardigan from the latest Interweave. Veronik Avery really does a wonderful job with the pattern and choice of yarn!



I know that tons of people have been looking for the Reynolds Soft Linen, and guess what people, I found tons of it! Call up Black Sheep Knitting in Needham, MA. Hurry (yes they do ship)! They have beautiful summery colors, which is why I have this gorgeous pale blue. For only $6.00 a ball, how can you go wrong?! The yarn is much softer on the hands than a 100% linen yarn, and it has great drape and stitch definition. They have a swatch in the store... a before and after washing swatch, and man, I can't wait to wash this sucker!

I saw this and wanted to make it, too - yours is coming out wonderfully and that blue is beautiful! Hmmm...I just may hit Black Sheep on the way home...

I have been eyeing that sweater ever since the mag came out. Yours is looking awesome. And thanks for the review of the yarn. I was curious on what it was like.

Your sweater looks great--I can't wait to see the finished product. And that yarn sounds absolutely scrummy!

I’m in the process of doing some massive ring maintenance for the FiberArts Bloggers ring and I am contacting you because there’s a problem with your code. The code you have up is actually alright, except that the ring’s original home page (which your code links to) on the urbanspinner site is long gone. The new home page is:
http://unioncenterknits.typepad.com/fiber_arts_bloggers/
You’re welcome to either switch out just that one part of the code, or ask me for the basic default ring code instead.
Please feel free to contact me with any related questions/concerns. Once you have your code fixed up, if you want to send me a note I’d appreciate it, so I can check it out. Thanks!

That sounds like a great yarn! Can you bring it tomorrow? I want to touch (I'll wash my hands first).

Thank you for the soft linen link. Im going to check it out. Im currently knitting with linen and although I have been assured it will soften when washed, it is a bit, well sticky and icky.
