Finished: Dovetail III & Toast III

What is with me repeating patterns so much lately? Normally I just can't wait to start something new and can't be bothered to remember the details of a particular pattern (unless it drove me crazy!).  This week (actually, today) I finished a pair of toast gloves for myself in Plymouth Boku and another Dovetail Cowl in Berroco Vintage to go with the State Street of my last post for my boss. 
Both were easy, both yarns dependable as always.

And as it is just now midday, onto another project.  I can't stop dreaming of wooly sweaters as the weather warms to summery temperatures :( Happy Knitting!

Finished: Lots!!!

I have been terrible about updating lately.  I have been knitting--duh.  I just haven't been able to find the time to sit down and talk.  
Added to my 2013 roster: 
Romney Kerchief, in beautiful Sweet Fiber sock--Fossil colorway.  I acquired this on my birthday at Loops. Couldn't be happier with this; it is dreamy and soft and the pattern was a breeze.

Odile, an easy cabled cowl made from the Malabrigo Worsted I bought at Mockingbird Moon in Arkansas. This pattern was well written and Malabrigo worked at a loose gauge is always begging to be next to my skin.

And finally, a State Street Cowl for my the niece of my boss.  I don't feel quite in touch with what young girls would like, but hopefully she will appreciate it in some way.  

The niece is one in a set of twins, so I have another cowl to make, this one a Dovetail in Berroco Vintage. 

And in other news, still growing the stash thanks to Webs summer sale.  Just when I say I am done for a time, I receive an email with deals I absolutely I can't pass up. 

Soon to come, an On the Grass sweater of Malabrigo Rios, Barbara W in Cascade 220 straw colorway, and for Madmay (YAY!) a Henslowe shawl in merino light, striped fingerless gloves in pashmina, 
and many other wooly concoctions that I just can't stop dreaming of! 

Happy Knitting!
