Today’s Knitting News

Patternwork’s Fall 2003 catalogue has a beautiful cover of yarns in pumpkin, rust and autumn colors – pretty enough to make you want to scope all of them up for something luschious. Inside, the Liv pullover and Gyrid Sleeveless top from Elsebeth Lavold’s Designer’s Choice Book One The Viking Knits Collection are shown, along with the silky wool yarn. A Viking sweater is in my future in the next year or two.

Another good one for Winter 2004 is the Gorshuch catalogue of finished clothing. The fun part of this mag is the Dale of Norway finished sweaters and accessories, along with other Norwegian inspired knitwear. I understand why Julie is hankering to knit one of these treasures.

Yesterday was a great knitting day. I am half way through the back of Chaise and seamed the shoulders of Grace & knit 4 cm of 12 on the collar. By the end of the week, I should have a new cardigan! Lunch today is the Booga J bag. It seems like my knitting is flying…the time away must have recharged my knitting batteries or something.
