Mojo Found But I'm Rusty

After a knitting hiatus, I cast on for Nalu Mitts. I was cruising along and thought to myself, "Self, you should take a picture of the cable-y part to show on your blog. Hmmm. That cable-y part doesn't look at all like the picture." Yeah. I was reading the cable chart right to left and then left to right like you do for flat knitting. Except these mitts are knit in the round. Grrr. To the frog pond I went!

So now I'm back at the cuff. I will say that I'm really loving the Madtosh DK and it's nice to have something on the needles.

In stash-building news, I went into my favorite quilt shop (Karen Gray) and picked up this:

Half yard cuts of several prints from Hope Valley. I really love this line. It looks vintage but still fresh. I think I'm going to use a big chunk of this for a Swoon quilt.

Great minds must think alike! Im considering which of my Denise Schmidt prints to use. Im thinking white background. Good luck with the knitting, Im clueless.


I love the diamonds-in-circles fabrics. Looks so 1950's.

i want to make the swoon quilt too!!!
we should have a triad mqg swoon quilt along. :)

i love the circle-y, diamond-y fabric.



The yarn looks lovely so I'll bet the cables will be beautiful when you get them on straight. Madtosh is one of my faves. In fact, I'm eyeballing some chunky to make the Shalom cardigan. Your stack from Karen Gray is beautiful. I can't wait to see the quilt!

One of these days I am going to get up there to Karen Gray. I SO want to shop in there!
