Insouciant designed by Julie Hoover
Habu Tsumugi Silk
     Feels  like I get more knitting done during the summer.  At least, I get some projects finished, which is a good thing, since new Fall yarns are beginning to arrive.
One of the gals in my Tuesday afternoon class and I decided to knit the Insouciant pattern together.  The pattern calls for Habu Tsumugi Silk doubled, which has  an incredible drape. Of course, Barb finished hers first but I did get mine done and actually wore it before I put it on display.

Anne Marie finished her Pour Moi sweater designed by Lori Versaci using Juniper Moon Findley DK,  After she put it together and tried it on she was not happy with it.  Then, she washed and blocked it and Magic -- she is in love.  It is really beautiful.
Myrtle did her sweater from a Custom fit  pattern and the results are a perfect fit!  Sweater was knit in Berroco Vintage DK.

We recently got the book Curls in and I had to start knitting one of the projects. It is called Chlorochrous and I am almost finished.  Am using Shibuiknits Staccato and Silk Cloud.  Interesting knit - the pattern calls for the Silk Cloud to be used only every 4th tow.

Fran finished her scarf from Curls, called Caesious and used 1 skein of Woolbearers  Sport Merino --- so soft and squishy

Now in the almost finished category is Paulina, designed by Cocoknits, made out of Ito Gima, a laceweight cotton.  I just need to seam it and it will be done!
