A dirty little affair…

I’ve been working really hard on the Aran Wrap Cardigan (which really needs a saucier name). I promise. It’s just I’m at one of those stall points. You know, where you’re faced with starting the next section (in this case, an arm or the skirty part), but it will take some concentration to get to a point where you’re in a groove.And everything else just looks so, freaking, unbelievable sexy right now. Case in point:yummy detailYea, I know, hot right?So here it is, proof that I’ve been knitting. Scratch that. Crocheting.This project was the perfect, quick little distraction to my wandering fiber lust. I started it yesterday after my Granny Square class (I was teaching) around 3 ish and had it blocking by midnight. It’s just so yummy!Scarf it to yaAnd it only took one skein of the most pefectly autumnally orange Alpaca Silk ever. LOve. It.So I was working on this yesterday afternoon at a volleyball tournament (I was there to support a friend/supervisee)… and I’m crocheting along, minding my own business, getting into the game here and there. Yup. I was totally channeling the soccer mom thing. But it was fun.And I finished a LOT of the scarf!Pile o' AnneOne of these days, I’ll pick the Aran Wrap Cardigan back up.  Just not today.  And maybe not tomorrow.  We were meant to be.  But just not right now.

Ooh that is very pretty! I LOVE the color, and I agree with Emma – it makes me more determined to make my mom help me ‘re’learn crocheting when I go visit at Christmas!

I just found your blog and it’s wonderful. I am a self taught knitter who just got back into knitting. So far I have only done two stitches, knit and purl. I went on YouTube to find out how to do the “right twist stitch” and found your wonderful vidoe. I just couldn’t understand the stitch from reading the pattern. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi Nicole! Because I like reading your blog I moved the RSS-feed over to here, but it doesn’t have a title yet! Maybe you want to add a title to your page that shows in people’s browsers and is also the name of the feed when people subscribe to it. (like your old blog had ‘all buttoned up’) I think you can change or add it in the header part of your wordpress Bloemenjansje

I firmly believe that it is perfectly acceptable to take a break from your primary knitting relationship for a foray into other fiber dalliances. Besides, she is lovely!
