Show prep

Autumn is back to back, wall to wall show prep.

We are trying to get Debbi out the door with everything she needs for helping at the Webs booth at Stitches East.

The yarn is there and we are now scrambling to make sure all sample are blocked and dried.  Here in rain land where moisture is never an issue this is a bit of a challenge.


We are scumming it up this fall with my beloved Pond Scum colorway. 

The yarn is our new DeVine a magnificent 16-ply cable yarn perfect for a very cozy and warm sweater.

The pattern is “Emerald” by Amy M. Swensen and is available at Knitty

The model my daughter Rabia is embracing her waif- like bohemian artistic nature and decorating herself as such .Her younger sister refers to is as over-sizing.

We have more samples going that way which I will add in here later today when they are dry. Right now have to go sew button on sweater and block these lovelies.

Fanning the Flame Mittens by Heartland Knits in Jabberwocky ( finished one) and Tonalite (in progress one).


Now where did I put that perfect button for this sweater? hmm…


And here we have the lovely Sasha Skirt by Louet knit by the on so talented and clever Debbi Stone (aka cockeyed)

We used 3 different yarns all in a different Raven colourway.

Seduction and Socks that Rock lightweight and Silkie Socks that Rock.

We have Rooky Thraven and Haida.

    Love the colour of the Fan the Flames finished mitten. However, Sudbury definitely demands thrummed mittens and I think thrums would ruin the pattern. Also love the slouchy sweater on the darling daughter. Am very happy to see her standing on what looks to be a “natural” deck-NOT painted. My cedar deck is that silvery grey colour and sometimes people query why I don’t paint it. Well, it’s because I like naturally weathered cedar, not the painted variety. It’s lasted 32 years so far. Cheers and red wine, Hazel.

  2. Ah!  SO love that Jabberwocky colorway!  And Rabia looks wonderful in that sweater!  What really gets me is the Pond-scummy matching tights!

    Rabia looks great in it.  I am just getting ready to knit “Baby Yours” in Pond Scum for my newest grandchild.

  6. I love how Rabia has a matching pair of pond-scummy tights too!

    Looking forward to the peek at the other samples.  I’m assuming one of them is that skirt of Cockeye’s which I think is fab!
