Please note that I am way too young to use expressions like “hubba hubba.” Honest.
But that Laci. Oh, Laci is racy. She does get around. In case you didn’t see her elsewhere around the knitting blogs, here she is.
She likes to par-TAY!
With our Phyl-Phyl.
And with Holly.
And I gotta say, you all look fabulous, dahlings!
I think Lucy is a little miffed with me after seeing the photo I posted of her yesterday. She was sitting in my lap when I took that picture — I had the camera in one hand, and with the other hand wiggled my fingers above her head to get her to look up. Poor Lucy.
And here, for Kelly, is an old photo of Lucy doing her “drape myself on the back of the chair” pose.
I got a lot of extremely cute suggestions for what to name my LaLuz sweater pattern. I’m going with Aurora, suggested by Cathy in San Diego. Thanks to everyone for the fun ideas!
Wendy, when you knit a seed stitch bottom border, do you typically cast on the full number of body stitches or fewer? The same size needle or smaller? I once knit a seed stitch border which rolled–I’ve avoided it since, but your LaLuz looks so nice, I’d like to try again. Thanks.
On Aurora, I cast on the full number of body stitches, and used the same size needle as the body. It’s worked out nicely, no rolling.
By the way, I really really like seed stitch in LaLuz. So much so that I briefly considered doing a whole sweater in LaLuz in seed stitch. But sanity (and impatience) prevailed and I discarded the idea.
question – i am itching to make Maidenhair but cant really wear a wool sweater at work – (too many computers in my area – its 80 degrees year round in my office). would it be sacriligious to knit it out of cotton – im thinking of BS Cotton Fleece – i have a gorgeous purple – and well, i really want to… would this be an exercise in futilty? any advice is appreciated (i love cables so i dont care if they are in cotton, and i love BS Cotton).
If you wanna, go for it! Be a bad-ass knitter! I would suggest making a fairly hefty gauge swatch first, though. Maidenhair is knitted at a fine gauge and you wanna make sure you can get the gauge and get the look you want with your suggested yarn.
