Crafty Yarning




Oh the knitting that has been going on here! I started and finished the Plain Tunic for Nuala using Noro Silk Garden #87. I don't know if I need better lighting or a better camera, but the yarn is so so much more lovely then in the photo. It is a bit big on her which is good, because she won't need a wool tunic dress until fall, but man, oh man was it fun to knit. I love Pickles Plain line of patterns for children. I need to order some toggle buttons from Wooly Moss Roots for this cute little tunic.
As soon as the tunic was off the needles I started two new projects, another Plain Sweater by Pickles using Wool of the Andes in Wonderland Heather. Which I think will be lovely. I am sure I have enough yarn to make one for Nuala and Fiona, so maybe this fall they will be all matchy matchy in their blue sweater vests.
And finally I cast on a pair of socks (well the first sock of a pair) using Araucania Nuble in colorway #21 which seriously looks like Easter and spring time. The yarn is so beautiful to work with. I am not sure I like the sock pattern for this yarn since it is such a fine fingering weight yarn, I am going to have to search Ravelry for another pattern I think. I want these socks to be extra special because I am making them for a dear friend.
