I have to confess that I wasn't all that into the Lorna's Laces Swirl yarns at first. Then the boxes were opened and the intensity of the colors started attracting my attention. Each time I walked by, a different color would come to my attention. These colors are really vibrant and I've fallen in love with several colors. I'm now making and planning several projects I will be giving as birthday and Christmas gifts. In the last post, Jeanne showed a picture of the slouchy beret I'm knitting in Swirl DK in Gold Hill . I've now finished it and as soon as I get it blocked I'll get a picture posted. I'll have the final pattern written up soon. It is the pattern I've developed for the beginning knitting series I'm teaching.

In fact, I have become so enthralled with the Swirl DK that I bought enough in this month's color of the month, My Favorite Fellas, to knit a sweater for myself. I'm still deciding which pattern I'll make but I'm really liking the Farmer's Market Cardigan by Connie Chang Chinchio in the Fall 2009 Interweave Knits. I'll have to make some adjustments to use DK weight instead of Green Line Worsted but I think the color variation in Fellas will work very well in this design.

Speaking of classes, we do have a lot of exciting classes planned this month. If you are local or will be in the area do check out our class list and sign up.

Wishing you all fleet fingers and your projects are flying off the needles.
