Marrowstone KAL

Have you started yours? (Marrowstone Shawl) Solstice (Tuesday) was the cast on day and I did. I cast on. I even did a few rows. But that's about it. I now have one lace repeat done for the edging, but I'm going to rip back half of it I think. I forgot to knit or purl in a row and the pattern is a little off. I'll try dropping the stitches first to see if I can fix it that way. We're headed to the beach at the end of the weekend so I'm going to blast through the lace edging. I really like design, I think the yarn is a great fit.
I'm also knitting Summer Winds from Carrie. Easy squeezy pattern, perfect for sitting around the fire with. Small confession, my first time knitting with Bling. L-o-v-e it! I can't wait to find another project for the beautiful yarn.
Anne at For Yarn's Sake in Beaverton asked me to come up with a Portland Timber's color. I love it! Even if you aren't a soccer fan I think this yarn is fabulous. Now to find a name...
She also needed a Mariner's color. Again, I l-o-v-e it. I think it's beautiful! I'm thinking of calling it Mojo. Do you remember the ad campaign the mariners did?
The little tiny baby skein in the picture below is MCN (merino/cashmere/nylon). People! I wish you could feel how deliciously soft this yarn is! I have a few skeins to dye up this next week, let me know if you have any requests!

We're going camping in a few days, when I get back I'll have a little wrap up of our quick trip to Black Sheep Gathering. The boys had a blast! (o is waking up so forgive any editing errors! Gotta run!)


  1. Oh I love those blues! Glad you had fun at BSG.

  2. I tweeted Magnolia as a name for the green. :-) Has the white for the blossom and the dark for the dark glossy tops of the leaves and the light for the light underside of the leaves. Such a pretty yarn!
