crossway kal

did you know about the fun we had in march?

a bunch of us did a knitalong (kal) over in my ravelry group ‘talitha’s tangles’

for the ‘crossway’ hat.

there was a custom colorway from mrs. crosby

called ‘cloverleaf’ available only through jimmy bean’s wool

(if you love green tonals, there are a few skeins left here),

lots of fun chatter and encouragement and hats.

definitely beautiful knit hats. take a look at our fo’s:

if you missed the fun, no worries.

i’ll be announcing (just about the mid-april)

the next kal

which will start

the first week of may.

this time around we’ll be knitting the depth cowl (in either dk or worsted).

keep an eye out here, or join ‘talitha’s tangles’

so you’re sure not to miss the detail packed

announcement all about that kal.

talk to you soon!

mondays with mrs. crosby: four

it is cold outside,

and very, very white.

the way that winter can lack color,

is hard for my head to work with at times.

so this week, i jumped into writing a new pattern

¬†with mrs. crosby’s ‘new leaf’ colorway (scroll down to see, it’s the top lefthand colorway).

just holding it makes me feel warm,

ju 1like spring is closer than the calendar suggests.

i’m so happy to be near things

that make me feel like that at this time of year.

mondays with mrs. crosby: three

ok, i was sure that i had posted this on monday,

until i stopped by the blog today to post something new and found it waiting for me here.

sorry. i’m readying for another stroll now if anyone wants to come along…

how fabulous to start the day off with

a sense of satisfaction!

‘jaunt’ is done

and oh so ready to go for a nice leisurely stroll.

mondays with mrs. crosby: two

there is something

about the very beginning, no?

it’s not the best bit for me. the great memories

haven’t been made yet, the things to be learnt haven’t been learned,

and the feeling of satisfaction of being able to look at what i’ve finished isn’t there yet,

but, the beginning practically vibrates

with possibility

and

the very best kind of unknowns.

so, here’s to ‘the beginning’

(known in knitting as casting on, and often followed by ribbing of some kind):IMG_2271sqi’ll check back in on this project next monday

to let you know how much closer i am

to the satisfaction then.

mondays with mrs. crosby: one

a swatch,

or a feeling that the swatch tries to capture,

or a place or color or memory that the swatch brings to mind…mwmc1these are all ways that something new can begin.

if you take a pinch of all of these

right now,

and mix it with

the rich colors and exotic travels

of mrs. crosby, you’ll begin to get a taste of

my newest project, ‘the voyages of vivian’.

so with this swatch, on this monday,

let’s begin some

once a week fun, from now until the process is done.

i’m ready. are you?
