Happy Blogiversary to me! WOW, 4 years sure has gone by fast.
I just wanted to put up a quick post today to show you what I’m currently working on and to tell you to make sure you come back this Friday – I have a super special somethin’ in store for ya.
Tonight I start teaching the First Crochet Cardigan class at WEBS. We’re using Julia Vaconsin’s Summer Petals cardigan (Rav Link) pattern
I swatched 7 different yarns for this before I decided on the one I wanted to use.
In the end I settled on Zephyr by Jaggerspun, a gorgeous merino and tussah silk blend on cones. One problem, seemingly, this stuff is lace weight and the pattern calls for a dk. All you have to do is swatch and block, people! I give you the before and after swatch.

I love how this moves through my hands and how warm it is even as it sits in my lap like a cloud!
Alrighty, back to putting the Friday surprise together, you’ll want in on this one!
