Bravo for knitting that beautiful linen stitch! While cumbersome, it has such a lovely effect. Look forward to seeing what sweet stitching the book cover inspired you to create.
Beautiful even without the blocking!

Love those flowers mitts! Your Umaro progress is looking beautiful as well. I feel that if I closed myself off from my stash, I too would find that projects would get finished. Something to think about next year. :)
The whole cowl is fantastic! I especially love the flowers. :)

The beautiful Fall temps we are having here in Arizona helps one to forget the long hot summers. It also causes the desire to knit and wear knits to heat up. 118 degree temps are forgotten for a couple of months and I couldn't be happier. Hermione's Everyday socks in... Continue reading
