Ysolda’s Verity

So, if any of you have been following my blog from the beginning, you would know that I am an avid balker, (blog stalker), and that one of my very favorite blogs belongs to designer Ysolda Teague.  Well, I have recently visited her site and after being able to no longer resist her patterns decided to purchase Verity

This wonderful leafy beret hat is sooo gorgeous!  I absolutley adore the quality of the pattern and the finished result.  After staying up until 1 am the first night and 2 am the second, I finished this wonderful work of art and strolled into work, (which just so happens to be a quilt/knit shop), and showed off my *cough* Ysolda’s, masterpiece.  It was a hit!  Everyone loved it!  I had girls swarm me to try it on.  And one asked me how much I wanted for it. . .lol.  Silly girls, this is mine.  Knit your own.  ^_^ 

So without further ado, I am pleased to introduce, my Verity beret!

Knit from the beautiful Dream in Color yarn in the wonderous colorway Happy Forest, this beret screams bohemian chic.  And how could you resist the oh so pretty Ribbed Lace Bolero by Kelly Maher also knit from Dream in Color’s Classy in colorway Ruby River?  These two yarns, and patterns, compliment each other so well, I felt like I was the epitimy of knit high fashion.  I have yet to post a modeled photo of the bolero, and still have yet to actually pose for it, but maybe you can get a sense with a self portrait of the beauty that is bolero.


Long time, no write. . .

It’s been a while since I have written anything.  I have been tracking my progress on here, and it seems that I have not had any visitors.  Maybe I should start putting tags on my posts.  We’ll try that and see how it goes.  Anyway, here’s what I have been up to in the past few weeks.

Ball Winder
Umbrella Swift

I got a ball winder and an umbrella swift for Christmas!  I absolutely love them!  They make life so much easier!  😉

And I played around with a skein of noro that I have had for a while now.  I made the Quant headscarf from knitty.  I adore this thing!  It was so nice and fast to knit up.  I’ll take a pic of it and post it soon!
