Since my knitting seminar last weekend with Sally Melville, I've been obsessed with yarny pursuits. More so than usual, if that's possible. I own four of Sally's books and have been perusing her patterns. I've been scouring the Patterns Section on Ravelry, taking in new designs. Whether or not I'll actually knit and/or crochet everything I place in my Favorites List doesn't matter. I just have to tag EVERYTHING I see! I'm not only a yarn-a-holic, I'm a pattern-a-holic too!
Here are a few of my latest faves:
|Sally Melville's "Step Dance Shawl" in Liberty self-striping yarn|
|Sally's "Step Dance" in variegated yarn|
|Lion Brand's "Mitered Shawl" in "Amazing" yarn|
|Red Heart's "Shore Thing" scarf|
The "Shore Thing" scarf is a Crochet-a-Long project for our El Segundo Guild this fall. I like it. I might make it wider in a solid color....more like a shawl. It's just a basic crochet ripple pattern, alternating solid and lacy rows.
For the present, I've been revisiting my WIP'd sweaters that have been languishing in tote bags around the house. After learning a few tips and tricks from Sally's classes, I'm inspired to finish everything before starting one of these new projects!
