Stash Buster

Looking for a quick way to clean out your stash of yarn, look no further I have an answer for you.



OK I said I had an answer not THE answer.
I found this chair at EuropeByNet.com It actually retails at $4,293.
It is the Vermelha chair designed by F. and H. Campana.

I think Cosmo would love this chair actually it might drive him crazy. I think it would give me nightmares. I would start dreaming about all my nice neat balls of yarn coming unraveled and making a large impossible knot. The HORROR!


On to the Knitting Update

Here is the lovely Rowan “Air” cardi.



Finished the back & Left front. I started one sleeve and am about half way done. I am not really on Sleeve Island; I like to think I am on the sleeve peninsula. It needs some serious blocking. Also the lighting is not that great to really show the details of the stitches.


Here is the awesome Rowan “Moira” bag



I have finished the first of the pattern repeat. I believe I need to do these 31 rows another 2 ½ more times to finish the bag. This is my first real Fair Isle knitting project and I have to tell you I really like it. I enjoy it so much more than intarsia. I will definitely do more Fair Isle patterns.

I know you are taking a blogger break but I hope you will post a photo of air when it is done. I'm knitting it too, and would love to see it on someone other than the Rowan model. I'd love to see your fair-isle bag finished, too. It is looking lovely.
