My Stonecrop! Slowly making progress, although the knitting goes rather quickly when I actually find time to work on her. It's a lovely intuitive pattern and I've loved every stitch...even the ones I've had to redo...hehe! Mistakes are so easy to see and quick to fix if you don't get too far away from them before you notice (note to self...sneak a gander more often...mistakes do happen!!).
I'm making the longer version and my yarn is Brooklyn Tweed Loft in 'Hayloft'. I was so unsure about this yarn when I wound it as it came apart pretty easily more than once, but the knitting, oh the knitting. It has not broken once and I do love its rustic feel and tweediness. I will use it again and try to be more gentle when caking it next time.
My project can be found here on Ravelry and I'll start getting some notes up soon. My to-do list has gotten out of control these days and knitting 'chores' keep ending up on the bottom rung.
And now a bit of business. There are eight of us knitting Stonecrop. So far we've only heard from Will, Kelli and myself. Here's a list of all knitalongers (is that a word...well now it is!) with their Ravelry handles if you'd like to find each other on our favorite knitting site:
Me (Melissa) - twoknitwit
Kelli - oneknitwit
Will - WillyG
Andrea - aksaxton
Sue - purl3
Olivia - thishandmadelife
Gemma - gemma
Jenny - jenniferaguilar
If I've forgotten anyone, please speak up and I'll add you to the list! Don't forget, when I sent you the invite it gave you all blogging privileges...please drop in and say hi when you get a chance and share your progress and materials and photos...don't forget the photos!
Guess that's it for now. Hope everyone is enjoying this Jared Flood pattern as much as I am. And yes, Kelli, I know you've already finished and thank you for waiting to post for a bit so the newbies don't get frightened and decide not to play anymore : )
Happy Sunday, all!
