Yarn Dreams

Well, I'm happy to say that I am getting close to the end of my summer recap. I hope to never get this far behind again!  Watch for a few more posts still to come in that series . . .

Meanwhile, the next Lost in the Woods Knitting Retreat is only a few days away!  I have been busy sewing skrapyram goodies for the retreat, and working on my grey cable-knit legwarmers.  I've also been doing a lot of dreaming about knitting with the help of the Fall 2011 issue of Interweave Knits.

Check out these Hex Mesh Stockings by Rebecca Blair

These True North Mittens by Odessa Reichel

This hat (the green one) from the book Weekend Hats by Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre

 And this Mossdale sweater by Martin Storey

No, really! I swear it's the sweater I'm dreaming about!

But as long as I'm fantasizing, how about this retreat in Port Ludlow, Washington with Stephanie Pearl-McPhee?  Well, not maybe not this year, but I do think I will add one of her retreats to my knitting bucket list!

Hi Mary!
I'm dreaming up things to make with the huge pile of yarn in my craft closet. Thanks for the inspiration :)
