seeing spots







sunspots! what a lovely test knit-




susan lawrence designed the pattern, named heat wave, and anne of wooly wonka fibers dyed the yarn.




unfortunately the kit is part of anne's soldout kit club.
fortunately i think it will be rereleased with a different yarn in a similar color.




this yarn is a gorgeous peachy corally silk. my only problem with the knit was using the wrong needle. i love lantern moon circs, but the points are too blunt for lace.



gingersnap's creepy crawly baby knee pads are in the mail. if they fit her i'll post a link to the pattern.

When good designer combines with good dyer and good knitter, the results are jaw dropping gorgeous. You three did just that and I love your result.

The scarf is very elegant and, as always, beautifully knit. I hope the little knee savers do their job.
