On and Off the Needles - 4/17/15

There has been a flurry of knitting activity this past week. Quickdraw is finished. I haven't been able to get a modeled pic yet though.


Once I finished Quickdraw, I sewed on the buttons to one of my oldest WIPs, Charleston Tea. This was a project I started 2 years ago. The button-band was wonky so I ripped it out and then it sat. A couple weeks ago I re-knit the button-band and last weekend I finished it by sewing on the buttons. With having finished this, I submitted for the Long Haul and Seamstress ESK badges.

I cast on and bound off my first project for the ESK Selfless KAL - Collina, scarf version. It was a quick knit, except for the last couple inches when I thought the skein would go on forever. I would love to knit this again, but in a bright color.


Currently on the needles is the Abundant Cowl which will also fulfill the Silk Sweetheart badge since I'm using Blue Sky Alpaca. Yum! This is a new to me yarn and it's sooooo soft. It's hard to tell in this picture, but the yarn is such a gorgeous shade of blue (colorway Riviera). (For some reason Blogger decided to turn my picture sideways.)

Nice work on the sweater, Amy. Those cables are amazing! Love the cowl and cowl-start, too.

You said it. You have been very busy knitting. I love the sweater. That color is just gorgeous. Nice scarf and cowl too. The color of the cowl does look great. Nice week's work, for sure.
