A WIP Par-tay!

My intended for my clover lace wrap – Rowan 4 ply cotton in midnight. It’s so yummy! I’ve swatched and I have my needles; I’ve just been working on other stuff the past few days, hoping to get some wear out of my hat and scarf this winter. I want to start the wrap sometime this week.

This is the balled yarn for my rendition of the Julia scarf I saw in my LYS. This is Cascade 220, and I will have enough leftovers for a hat or two, and that makes me quite happy!

I find it facinating how the bright yarns mellow each other out. I never would have expected it. I’ve contemplated ripping back and creating a wide striped scarf, but it’s growing on me so I think I’ll keep it this way.

My coronet from Knitty in Cascade 220. This is my first cabled project and I thought it went rather well. It’s a fun carry along project. The kitchner was fun and stress-free thanks to the video on knittinghelp.com!

This is my Shapely Tank in progress. I’m using an acrylic/wool blend found in my LYS’s sale bin. Great deal at under $20 and I love the color!

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.

    It is hard to tell from the picture, but I think that that is the same color of 4-ply that I got for my Lucky… I wish I had picked up an 11th ball too… I am hoping that I can get away with 10… but I am, ahem, “busty”…

    Hope all is well, K!
