Loose Ends

Gosh, I feel like I've been slacking with my posts lately. I went from almost every other day to like twice a week. I'm still here though… I guess it's just because I continue to be busy with work… too tired in the evenings to do much of anything lately. I did get one project off my needles though…

Probably like most of you I always like to have at least one easy knit on my needles at all time. You know, the kind that you can pick up and knit while watching a movie, chatting or whatever… a brainless knit. Well for the past year or so I've been working on this Ruched Throw, (pattern based out of the book Hand Knits for the Home). It's actually the first throw I've ever made for myself! I'm so happy to have if off my needles. And let me tell you the yarn is divine (I got it at a big discount too!). I used Lana Grossa, Soffice, it's 62% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 28% Acrylic - the 10% cashmere makes a world of difference. I wish you could feel how soft this is!Only thing is, I'm not quite done yet, I have the tails of 14 skeins left to weave in! Not looking forward to that and I'm not sure when that will get done but in the mean time, I'm still using it to cuddle up with!

(will post better photos when it's 'completely' done!)

Hey Jill! What can I say other than WOW!! I think you have now inspired me to start on mine!! I absolutely love it! Maybe when I finally finish mine (probably take me TWO years) we can weave ends in together :-)
