I try not to be terribly political here at Chez FKD but please get out today and VOTE! It's a priveledge many nations don't have, a right we are lucky enough to be afforded and a responsibility we have to ourselves and each other.
If we are not part of the solution, we are part of the problem. Use your voices today and VOTE!
On a lighter note, I give you Ruben....he's the new man in my life!
He comes to me from Sweden on a Sentimental Journey, isn't he dreamy?
Ok, ok I confess, he's my new WIP....
Ruben designed by Elsebeth Lavold in Designer's Choice, The Sentimental Journey Colllection, Book Two.
I'm making Ruben as a Christmas gift for my old friend Augie. Remember him?
The pattern calls for cotton but I wanted something warmer and a bit less casual so I decided to use Silky Wool. This is my first experience with Silky Wool and WOW is it nice! It's a very smooth knit and I love the tweedy depth and almost felted feel of the yarn....yummy stuff! And the colorway I chose? VERDIGRIS!
Here's my knitting supervisor to show you my progress so far....
Isn't the Verdigris lovely? Look at that stitch definition (and that handsome P-Man!)
As much as I loved knitting the Thistle Flower tank (thank you for all the lovely compliments, btw!) I missed knitting with wool so I'm thrilled to be back! I'm really enjoying this new WIP, can you tell? I'm gushing :)
I've added 2 new buttons to my sidebar that I'll post about next time and I'll show you the progress on the entrelac socks too....til then go raise your voices and VOTE!
