Perfect start

I don’t think there is a better way to start a four day weekend than with cashmere and a new project…


When I saw the Yarn Harlot post about her cowl pattern, I immediately started looking at my stash on Ravelry.    I was a little concerned at first that I wouldn’t have something that worked for this pattern, but then I saw the Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere.  I bought this the first time I went to Maryland Sheep and Wool (years ago!), and never found just the right pattern for it (believe it or not – I bought this with the intent to make Larry socks from it – crazy!).    And its perfect for this pattern – and I couldn’t cast on fast enough.  This is a great pattern, and I’m already planning on making another one.    I have a skein of cashmere that I think would be nice for this – and I also have some quivit – this is the perfect pattern for those special skeins.

I was off today, and had a nice relaxing day of knitting, lunch with Andrew and Larry and walking Ruby.  I had to work a little this afternoon, but I’m done now, and off until Tuesday.    I am planning on lots of knitting time, with a little time for family and golf.  That and the cashmere just make it the perfect weekend!

Have a good weekend!

    I’m still trying to figure out what to do with my quivit. I’m thinking of some type of smoke ring/cowl. Just not sure, nothing has spoken to me yet for the special yarn.

    It’s a wonderful pattern and look beautiful in that yarn – printed my pattern out, wound the yarn….now I just have to clear my head to cast on. Have a great weekend and
