The Big Reveal

If you’re looking for the giveaway, check out this post and leave a comment. 

A while ago, I mentioned a test knit I was working on. I finally have permission to show her off!

Knitting world, meet Lucy.  The shawl is designed by Debbi Stone and you can purchase the pattern here.  The yarn I used was The Woolen Rabbit Kashmir laceweight in Mystic Mountain Pine.  It was heavenly to work with and now I want more!

I met Debbi when I went to Blue Moon Fiber Arts sock camp.  When she put out the call for test knitters, I immediately wanted to help her out, because she’s a really cool lady.  It was a fun knit and I highly recommend it.

The whole center is a very pretty lace panel with stockinette on the edges, so it’s a pretty quick knit, but It looks gorgeous!

On the quilting front, I’m working on quilt 4 out of the Living Large 2 book.  This quilt is called Hip to (NOT) be Square.  Here’s a little preview.

This is what the center block looks like.

My brain is already wondering what else I could do with this block.  I love it.  The darker fabrics are added next, to form a totally different look.  I think I’m going to really love this quilt.  I think it will go on Superblonde’s bed when we kick her out bring her to college and sob all the way home.  But that’s a year away yet.  I have plenty of time to finish this!

I’m still looking for a couple of yards of a fabric for this line for a border.  It’s called Arcadia by Sanae for Moda.  If you have some you’d be willing to sell me, just click on the Contact Me button at the top of the page or leave a comment.  I’d be thrilled because I’m not finding it anywhere.

Well, it’s back to the sewing room for me!

  1. I like the fabrics you choose for the pattern. I just purchased the same book. Fabulous!

  2. Gorgeous colors! I had to chuckle about ‘sobbing all the way home’. I did shed a tear when we dropped our DD off at school, but not all the way home! lol Happy stitchin’!

  3. I wasn’t sure of the name of the fabric from the Arcadia line that you plan to use for the border (or the product #), but found a few things that might help.

    Here is the entire kit, in case you wanted the border fabric in this picture and could use the other fabrics included for another project:

    I also read that someone recommended Moda’s Zip a dee zoo dah in teal.

  4. Oops! Zippity doo dah! I guess I was thinking about the song!
