Two more March Items - 1 left to go


Its been a few days since my last post. I've been a teensy bit busy working on a Textures 2 scarf from Fleece Artist & Hand Maiden Yarn--It came out gorgeous similar to Loopy and Luscious! I also, whipped up a hat that I tried to match up for a set. These are going to go live with my friend Debbie. I hope she likes them.

Red Furry bag is complete

Wow, I completed this bag in no time... It took me longer to get back hear and post than to actually complete the bag. In my opinion it came out really cute. I used Jaeger Damask 2 skeins and 2 balls of Red Fur also by Jaeger. This is my first completed item for project spectrum. My second item a heart scarf is almost done. Should be done by tonight.

Then I will be on to my next two projects. I have decided to knit up a Clapotis as featured on knitty.com (exact color too. I looked at the other options and like this colorway the best --the bittersweet). Additionally, I will be whipping up a Textures 2 Scarf in Berry Romance a beautiful combination of pink, fuchia and red.

I must say, these may be the most absolutely luxurious yarns I have come across. I can't stopp oggling them. Here are some shots of my work in progress and the new yarns.

Project Spectrum

I've just recently joined Project Spectrum that Lolly is hosting. This going to be a whole lot of fun. Lolly has prepared a color theme for each month and for March we are working with red and pink. I have it all planned out-- For the red I will be knitting up a funky furry bag with Jaeger natural fleece and red fur. For the pink, I will be making a pretty heart themed scarf that utilized 3 yarns: a silver shimmer, pink eyelash, and cotton stria by Manos. Here are some pictures of the yarn.
