I did get in a little sewing/knitting time yesterday and after many, many months finally finished the lace and ruffle sweater (Adrienne Vittadini, spring 2005). Yarn is Diana, also by A. Vittadini. I was very frustrated before adding the ruffle, and ready to quit because it had NO shape. The ruffle helped a lot to provide a little structure, but it is still pretty "drapey". Once I get it blocked properly, we'll get another picture.
Well, a very "full" day ended with a "full" moon rising over the Chechessee. Here I am with my friend Teri enjoying a little boat cruise as the sun sets and the moon "rises".

I thought the best way to post my first entry would be to include a picture of the Chechessee River at sunrise. Part of what I have to share is the pure beauty of the place where we are so lucky to call home.
Thanks so much to Ashley for helping me launch this blog. This is a very new challenge for little pix, but I'm excited about this journal and sharing what is special to me!
It is "wonderful Wednesday"!! (usually my day off) so I'm looking forward to running errands and catching up around the house. If I'm lucky, I'll have time to work on finishing a sweater that I've been knitting for quite some time -like 2 years!! I hate to admit that, but then I don't get much time to devote to this hobby. Also, I have to admit that there are quite a few co-existing projects.
The blue wrap posted by Ashley is 3button wrap by Keely Stuever. Took me all summer, but it is very easy knitting for a nice addition to the wardrobe. The yarn is from Aruacania in a beautiful blue-purple colorway.
