60 Quick Knits book where three of my patterns can be found. I am not very happy with the pattern since someone thought it should be rewritten (and now there is a mistake in it!) and also the finishing which according to me should be blocking was changed to "do not block" and this is just impossible! But I will get over it.....
I have knitted this scarf for my local yarn store IRIS FINE YARNS where I also teach knitting classes on a regular basis.
There will be a book signing night in May!

Today I had the honor of meeting Brandon Mably! He is a British knitting celebrity and very famous in knitting circles. Here you can find more information about him
We started the day off with picking a favorite postcard and then choosing colors from it which we then had to transfer into rows of yarn with about 6 different colors per row. His British accent was quite "charming" as he would put it and his jokes were very entertaining as well. I learned a lot!
Tomorrow I will be off to surgery! I ruptured my Achilles tendon when I tried to push a heavy piece of furniture......

I have picked up one of my older projects. This photo shows the sleeve of my hopefully soon finished circle cardigan out of Noro and Habu yarns. It is actually a fun project and the sleeve has only 64 stitches at the top! And it is knitted in the round only! The background and sleeve show the grey Wisconsin sky.
