Azalea from Rowan 41.
- started on 4th March, finished on 1st April
- 3 mm needles
- "Gloria" cotton by Anilux, some mohair from the stash
I love the colour (it dyed very evenly, not like Capri, I must say...) and although it's not exactly how I wanted it to be (as if too big, flowing around me, like on the model in the magazine) it's very comfortable and I'll be wearing it a lot. In fact, I already had it on for Wednesday's Women Circle and Thursday's meeting with friends at a restaurant! ^^.
Capri from Rowan 43

My camera did something crazy with the colour of this cardigan - it's not totally solid violet, but it's not THAT MUCH variegated! *^v^* It was a quick and nice almost mindless knitting project. Dyed twice to achieve an even colour but it wasn't meant to be with this violet. Anyway, I like it a lot!
All my orange "Gloria" is gone now. I made a Tomato top, Azalea cardi and Capri cardi out of 1 kg of yarn, how about that?! *^v^* Now I must find a good yarn for Lydia (I almost had it, but there was only one skein in the shop, yikes!...). For now I'm knitting Lords & Ladies with the "Luna" yarn I bought, but held DOUBLE and I'm a happy camper. ^^
Do you know the new craft community called My Craftivity? It's a great resource for artists and crafters of many kinds, there are groups with interesting discussions, free projects and patterns to download, prompts and contests, just see for yourself!
I joined the group called Mixed Media & Collage, took part in their March Challenge with my journal entry and... I won the book "The Art of Personal Imagery" by Coorey Moortgat! *^v^*
So, my dear Readers, follow my example and take part in different challenges, giveaways and contests, and win prizes! This book was on my Amazon wish list and now it's mine. ^^
I'm off to the kitchen to check upon the cheesecake I'm baking, have a great weekend! *^v^*
