My knitting has been a series of little fluff projects lately.  Sometimes you need a break from the big, overwhelming, never ended slogs!!

This necklace is called Knotty Knitted Necklace.  Mine was knit in the Schachenmayr Couture yarn I bought at Yarnover.  It only took about half the skein.  I made one for Sally but a huge portion of the yarn had no seed pearls.  Looked naked, but I kept knitting anyway.  I doubt anyone will notice.  I have actually worn it already and it is cute for a summer accessory!

Remember Monkey Face?  I made a Teddy Bear version for a work friend.  Her son is expecting a baby boy at the end of summer.  I made a smaller size (obviously!!) for a newborn.

I am excited that I will be out tonight with family celebrating my nephew’s graduation from law school.  He still needs to pass the bar, but I know he will.  Great kid with a bright future!!

I received the latest issue of Interweave Knits and there are a couple of sweaters (Chesapeake and Magic City Henley specifically) that are perfect for the Invisible Stranding technique I describe in my It’s Not About the Hat pattern.  It would make them turn out beautifully!!

  1. Just finished downloading the wonderful tutorial for the knotted necklace by this very clever young Raveler. I’m all thumbs where crochet is concerned and she made it very easy. Thank you for sharing this with us, Susan. It would make a great gift.
