Sammi

Yes, this really is a knitting blog. I have a ton of FO and WIP pictures to post this weekend, but I just had to show off a picture of the new puppy! I won't be knitting her any doggie sweaters, though. I think she'd have a fit if I tried to make her wear anything.


Isn't she just a doll? Posted by Picasa

More pictures are here, if you are interested.

Wow, I just saw this site. The Fall 2005 collection is inspirational. I especially love the Sleighride Coat, Cable Shawl (although it's not much of a shawl with sleeves?) and the Long Reno Coat. Who can help me with pattern design based solely on one picture? :)

I definitely want to knit myself a coat one day. I've been eyeing a bunch of patterns since I began knitting, but it seems so daunting a process. Either too many hours to count or needles so big there will be hand pain... I'm sure at some point, probably once it gets chilly again, I'll get over the angst and just go for it. For now, I'll just look and try not to drool.

Finally a meme for us. Thanks Marnie!

You appear to be a Knitting Purist.You are an accomplished knitter producing beautiful pieces with a classic feel. You sometimes lament losing half of your local yarn shop to garish novelty yarns. Perhaps you consider fun fur scarves the bane of knitting society and prefer to steer new knitters towards the wool and cotton blends. Some might call you a bit of an elitist but you know that you've been doing this craft long enough to respect the history behind it and honor it with beautiful piece
that can last a lifetime.
