Serena Baktus

I have finished Baktus! It took 2 skeins of Manos Serena. One blue and one beige.

I love how it turned out!
And I love Miranda's modeling poses!

Knitting one, Wearing another

I am knitting Baktus with 2 skeins of Manos Serena. This sumptuous alpaca/pima cotton yarn is so soft and pleasing to knit with! The scarf is about 1/2 done now. I am striping two rows of blue and 2 rows of beige. Feels and looks like the desert and the sky!

I am wearing the Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton Summer Striped Scarf from the newest Vogue magazine. Just perfect for a cooler spring day like today!
Come in and check them out!

Summer Yarns are in the Shop!

Sublime has a beautiful, beautiful yarn called Bamboo and Pearls. It drapes so wonderfully. Come in and check out this tank top knit in it!!

This child's vest is knit in Mirasol's Samp'a. It is a a naturally dyed organic cotton that is wonerful to work with and soft to the touch. Perfect for children's garments. The vest is from a Sublime pattern book but there is now a Samp'a book available too.

Summer Scarves are a big accessory this year! This scarf is knit with Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton. Pima is my favorite cotton to knit with. Come and check out the scarf ideas!

Lariat's are what I seem to be in to these days! Another version of a summer scarf really. This one is an I-cord knit in cotton . I have several in the shop done and ready to wear!

Last but not least is the Debbie Bliss Amalfi. I have knit myself this tank and I loved the knit. A really nice summer yarn. It is in the shop for viewing for a bit before I have to wear it for summer!
