New sweater in progress! Here’s the Cascade Ecological wool I’m using – I think the color is called Latte. It’s a minimally processed, non-dyed natural wool. Very nice, and seems to knit up fairly quickly. I’m using my favorite Knitting Pure and Simple raglan pullover pattern, but I plan to incorporate some cabling and designs from Viking Knitting later on. Experiment, experiment. And soon it will be time for Rhinebeck. Couldn’t be happier!
Then there’s my knitting Tara. This is one of my Green Tara amulets; I like to tie it on to a large work in progress. It serves not only as a marker at the beginning of the row, but also to remind me to breathe, to take pleasure in the process, to be thoroughly involved in my knitting.
Isn’t she beautiful?
