Bettina's Twist...

Bettina, a wonderful knitter-artist and friend of our shop, brought in her Rickenbacker scarf for show and tell this weekend. She used Tilli Tomas' beaded silk and a touch of Disco Lights to give it that extra Bettina fabulosity. I love it, check it out...

I don't know if you can really see the beads and sequins, but it's so beautiful, as soon as my Tilli Tomas comes in, probably tomorrow, I might have to whip one up for myself in "Hibiscus"- my favorite Tilli colorway. Yes, I am starting to get back to my knitting. With a week or so, left in the first trimester- yes, I said it- prego mego and sooooooo tired. Hopefully now, you can all give me a pass for my lack of blogging lately. I just haven't knit a stitch in literally 2 months. Exhaustion and nausea have totally taken over, and just finally this week, I am seeing the light at the end of the first trimester tunnel. So I decided after all, what I've been dying to work with is the Skinny Cotton from Blue Sky, and I just want something soft and cozy to wrap around me, for example- on a day like today. So one of the gals had come in with her "Mermaid" shawl, it was exactly what I had wanted.

Scarlett has been helping me stay wake through the days here at work, last week, on one of the many rainy days we had, I thought it would be fun to let her practice felting. So, I just wanted to share this picture with you, she's so sweet.

Since, I'm knitting on such a minimal level these days, if there is a project that you would like to share on the blog, just pop me an email with a picture and some detail, and I'll post it. Lindsay, if you're reading, we would love to see Phiaro #1. Of course I knit my mother a Phiaro, gave it to her on mother's day and forgot to take a picture of it. So hmm hmm Lindsay... I will be back to sending newsletters and updating classes etc. shortly!!!

  1. Glad to hear you see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Love the contrast edge that Bettina added to her Rickenbacker.
