I am enjoying a really nice, quiet weekend, filled with lots of knitting, cooking, some cleaning, some writing, some bird watching. I’m loving every minute of it.
This is what’s on the needles this weekend: #’s 3, 4 and 5 of the Shibui Knits FW15 Collection, a swatch for one of the next pieces and a piece for me.
Like my self-made Shibui bags? 🙂
As one of my co-workers at Shibui pointed out this week, I will be creating 20 garments in a 12 month period. Holy cow!! You wonder why I always have yarn and needles in hand?!?! I love every single stitch!
I’m trying to keep one piece going for me personally at the same time and this lovely yarn will be adorned by me in the not-too-distant future. Shibui Maai and Staccato in colorway Velvet. Love this combination of yarn. It’s my new fave. The lofty, airy, extremely soft texture of the Maai blends beautifully with the silky sheen of the Staccato. This combination creates a really interesting fabric with great stitch definition and depth.
And my hummingbirds are back at the feeder. Love these little guys.
