One of the best folk duos around is
Madison Violet and at their gig 16 April, Lisa mentioned that Brenley’s Mum had knit these as part of their promo merchandise. So now I got the tee shirt and the hat!

Hmm… Don’t it make my green eyes blue?

And here’s what I’m working on:

Quartz Tunic Progress 1

Shaping is done and doing a couple mods for this version. My first was done to pattern specs, will change up the sleeves and hem for this one. Using Wildflower Whimzy Sakura (merino / bamboo blend) in the “Rumours” colourway. Soft, subltle – love it!

Florentina Progress

Slow but sure… it’s been hard getting back to the cold, harsh reality of winter in Ottawa after our “Honeymoon”. Getting back in the swing now. Hmm… Guild this coming Monday and some rocking good times with a few friends. A hint of Spring in the air this morning as I walked down to my LYS, Yarn Forward in Kanata. Of course, that called for a celebratory skein of Lana Grossa Solo :-), a Ravelry update and now, must organize patterns. I need an assistant to deal with all the fibre-y goodness I have kicking around here…
