Sarcelle C'est Fini!

My September monogamy has paid off - in spades (whatever that means - what does that mean? I'm not a card player, I assume its a gambling thing - gambling to me is like flushing the toilet, but that's a story for another day . . .)

Please ignore the rats nest on my head (what's up with the dreads in the back of my head!!!! - I swear I showered this morning!), and my butt - but here is Sarcelle, blowing in the wind -





Isn't the Bunny beautiful??? If I were to do it again, and I'm not ruling it out - I really enjoyed this pattern - and I've been looking for an excuse to use Posh Yarns cobweb weight cashmere - I would definitely make it longer - but, I'm really pleased with it, and while it's more of a scarf length, I know that if it really is chilly tomorrow morning, I'll probably grab it on my way out of the house.

And whaddya know? Finish a project, THEN cast on another - shocking! There's definitely craziness going on over here.

So, here's the swatch for Maude -


I should have the Maude-A-Long going this weekend, and I'll have much more to say about Maude then, but clearly, I am surviving without those 17 skeins of Koigu snatched from my hands.

I know I've been a bad blogger - I've just been working on the new website for Knitty D and the City - check it out! I'm becoming quite the HTML/CSS expert.

Now that the website is up and running (although the store is soon to come), I should be more faithful here!

The Sarcelle is beautiful! It is next on my needles when I finish the second of a pair of socks . . . but mine will be in black!

Sarcelle is beautiful, but I really love the colors for Maude. That yarn is gorgeous!

Love the new Knitty D website. You have been working hard!

Great Sarcelle, by the way. Those colors are just gorgeous.

Very, very nice. The colorway looks great with your haircolor. This will be a shawl you pick up and wear a lot!

I'm so glad you're back! I visited the new web site, and it looks great. I am thrilled that there are message boards too so all of us can chat more often. I had Sarcelle envy over at Bunny Hop, and now I'm having Maude envy! I wish I had some Koigu...

Loverly! Love the new site and am looking forward to everything coming. BTW - SOUND was GREAT on the last episode (still not quite finished listening) though I miss the beagle chatter.

Monogamy really does have it's rewards, doesn't it? Gorgeous!

Great shawl - I've got that one in the queue!

Your Sarcelle is gorgeous! Now I want one too. I know just the yarn. Too bad I have to finish some of my WIP's first.

Christine said...

It turned out so beautiful! I love it!

Glad to see you are surviving without those 17 skeins of Koigu. I was worried that we would have to come and do Koigu CPR or something. ;-)

Magnifique! I just finished Clapoti and love it - this one looks great too. Was going to do another Clap but might try this instead.
