Something Silver . I love the color of this yarn and it is a wool, acrylic,
nylon, rayon blend, also very soft and was a vintage Old Navy sweater once upon a time. I love the sweat yarn combo and my fingers are itching to work on it. As always I will concentrate on finishing Leksak Lady first.
I haven't blogged in so long.. Family issues and other stresses made me require a little quiet time to think things out. In the mean time I went on a few day trips on my days off. The beach is really close to where I live, only a 10 minute drive. The little city of Edmonds is very pretty and sits right on the coast overlooking the ferry and ocean. The above picture is a pretty little shop in the city. Below is a field of flowers that I walk past on my way to work. Believe it or not we have had no rain in over three weeks. There was a little drizzle last night so all the grass and flowers are starting to dry up.

The beginning of the knitting, knitting on the bus and almost a month later... finished. I still have to go to buy some buttons and give it a good wash and light blocking. The style of this sweater is a little boxy and I'm hoping after a little blocking I can reshape it a little. It has nice drape due to the linen.
I have never seen new pine cones grow.. this is how they start!

Thrift store finds. I found these beauties on my last trip there. The two aqua sweaters are vintage old navy with the old labels they don't use anymore. The middle sweater is so nice I may not unravel it. It is size small and fits.
oriel lace cardigan. I had high hopes of finishing this fast, but I now see this isn't going to happen.
