One Great Knitter

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Write about a knitter whose work (whether because of project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash, etc) you enjoy. If they have an enjoyable blog, you might find it a good opportunity to send a smile their way.

One knitter that really gets my mojo going is Norah Gaughan. I love her patterns and I have many in my queue. She is inspired by nature and currently has 453 patterns listed on Ravelry. Her latest feat is a collaboration for a book Comfort Knitting and Crochet Afghans. I just bought it and I am waiting for it to be shipped. I want to knit afghans now. Every one of them in this book!

I don't have a crocheter that I absolutely adore so its all about knitting today:(

Here are some of Norah's patterns that I hope to be knitting soon....


In other news, I am so close to finishing Citron for Marcy. I have to ship it by Monday at the latest unless I ship it UPS. Which I will probably do anyways since the USPS is so unreliable.

I also think that I am going to try and post certain things on different days of the week. Wednesday will be current WIPs (works in progress). Friday will be FOs (finished objects). I haven't thought of the other days and I don't know if my life and knitting is interesting enough to write about every day. Two days is enough consistent blogging.

I found some novelty (gasp!) yarn at Stitches that I really like Cocoon or something. Webs carries it and it will be about $150 to knit/crochet a blanket out of it. It reminds me of a fuzzy caterpillar. I fondled it at the Universal Yarn stand at Stitches and was amazed. Its soft and can be made in a variety of ways for different effects.

I had some moles removed last Friday and I am pretty sure the one on my chest has become infected even with the use of Polysporin. I can't really access the ones on my back so I have to rely on the Mister.

The Mister has been overwhelmingly nice lately and I hope that this trend is here to stay. He will be going with me back home in a couple of weeks for my brother's graduation. I am having someone come look at my apartment and meet me on Friday afternoon to see if she wants to rent it. Hopefully she works out. I have weeded out some crazies and scammers already.
