New Look, New Knits!

Okay so the knits are not so new, but what do ya think? Missa sent it to me tonight and I couldn't wait to get it up for y'all ;) I was going to change my blog name to Carrot Top Knits...but I have to admit I was going to miss my old reliable name! I am hoping to get the banner a little larger, but I LOVE IT! My favorite is the cute new button.....

On to knits......

This would be the back of Boogie. I casted off the next row and placed remaining stitches on holders. I have already casted on for the front. This has been the quickest knit ever, and I am loving it :) Speaking of quick knits could you just die? Waterlily...From IK Spring 2006.

It is made with Colinette Giotto, and it is pricey stuff! Guess I will be looking for a trade off from someone in the UK for knitpicks ;) Or hit ebay like a bad girl!
I am dutifully making my Picovoli for the sexy knitters club, and I like the pattern...It keeps me busy. Here is progress yesterday..

You can see on the instruction page my technically advanced way of counting rows... I am making this with Jaeger Trinity. It was hard to work with at first but now I love the stuff! My friend Jenn told me she had a Jaeger booklet of patterns for Aqua and Trinity summer patterns, yep gotta get that too :)
I got my International Scarf Exch. scarf in, and I love it! Can't take a pic b/c it will wake the kiddos and DH but here is a link to her blog and the pic she took...the model is her son ChandlerThank You MANDY!!!!!

Great new look! Very cute striped background ;) and the banner is great!

For the Giotto: there is a slightly cheaper alternative, that will yield the same results. Try Knit One Crochet Too's Tartalette. I believe it is the same width. I have used both Giotto and Tartalette, and they were so similar.

I am lovin' that Picovoli progress - so pretty!

Hi, Catherine! :-) Your Picovoli looks wonderful- I really like the color you chose. And it looks like you're making great progress on Boogie! I can hardly wait for IK Spring '06, too. ;-) Thanks for the encouragement with Kiri- I definitely need it, lol! I can't wait to see your progress on Birch- I give you so much credit for casting-on 299 stitches!! I can barely keep track of half that amount with Kiri! I'm so glad I found your blog- I'll be back again soon! :-) Take care! :-)
