So here I am one day, sitting at my computer wondering what to knit next when I recieve a text message from none other than the lovely Margaux Hufnagel. What was in that text you might ask. Well, it was this link: BT Fall 11. I quickly opened it up, because who could really resist? After drooling for a few minutes, I promptly responded with something along the lines of, don't you realize I'm in school this semester you evil person!?!?!
But evil, she is not. If anything Margaux is one of my many knitwear enablers and I love her for it. We quickly made plans for an Ashby knit-a-long. While the KAL didn't work out quite as planned, (have you even started yours yet M?) I did manage to whip it out in about a months time.
Knitting this pattern was a wonder. I absolutely love Kumara, it's so soft and silky as you knit it up, adn the stitch definition is absolutely beautiful. The pattern was very well written, and the construction is ingenious. I actually think that this would make a really beautiful heirloom baby blanket, if time ever allows me the oppotunity to whip one up.
Until next time,
