On the needles : Aidez, Kalajoki, Westphalie

I love Fall. We get to wear all our knitty goodness. But we never have enough, don't we?

My Aidez cardigan is going well, but slowly. I work on it when I'm tired of my tiny yarn/needles projects.

I needed a small project to bring to Rhinebeck, so I casted on these Kalajoki socks. One's already down and I'm about to turn the heel on the 2nd one. A new FO soon?

Oh these? Hum, they're called Westphalie, and they are a new design I'm working on...

Random : Rhinebeck purchases 2011

What did I buy at Rhinebeck? I wish I could've buy more, but hey, yarn budget. We all know what it's like. I'm usually a buyer with a purpose, and having none on site, I decided to stay logical: fingering or lace weight yarn that can be knit into so many things.

I laid my hands on a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock heavyweight in the Swamp Goblin colorway. A generous 198g/350yds skein, enough for a nice, long pair of socks.

I discovered MissBabs' "Yummy Monochrome" sockweight yarn and couldn't help but buy one skein in beachglass colorway. Another pair of socks, I suppose?

The last skein (yes, only three skeins...) was a real surprise. I went to their stand at least four times. I just couldn't decide. At last, I fell in love with a skein of Mocha's Fiber Design Lita Laceweight yarn, 80% Extrafine Merino/20% Silk in the Lauren colorway. Love love love her yarn.

Random : Sneak peek + Rhinebeck!

Do you remember the secret project I was working on? Well it is currently on the blocking board, and that couldn't get me more excited. I received the permission of Dani from Lionessarts to post a sneak peek, so come on, feast your eyes on that gorgeous yarn.

As for my Aubépine, the pattern is not yet written. My goal is to have it up on screen before Rhinebeck this weekend. Wait wait wait. Did I say Rhinebeck? Yes!! I will travel with my good knitty friend all the way down from Montréal to go check out this famous Wool and Fiber festival! See you there this weekend!

FO: Aubépine

Oh, how I love wearable knits! Aubépine is an elegant hip-length top featuring a V-neck, both in front and back, dolman short sleeves, and a delicate double stitch and cable stitch pattern. The garment consists in 2 identical panels sewn together and a picked-up neck band. Plus, it is easy to wear over a pair of jeans, a skirt or even leggings, with a belt to show that waist of yours! Knitted with Skein's Merino/Silk Sport yarn in Raku, this top is flowy and light but still keeps you warm.

This yarn, my friend, this yarn... first, the color is absolutely gorgeous. I mean, who would expect a variagated yarn to behave like that with a cable pattern? And the base (50% Merino, 50% Silk) takes blocking wonderfully!

The pattern is not yet written, but I gathered my notes and am working on it...

Random : Has it been this long?

Hi guys!

Oh my God. Has it been this long since my last post? Almost a month?! What?!? Honestly, I didn't even notice! I thought I was even doing great at blogging! Well, I guess it's my bad...

I think I didn't see the time fly because I was so busy, in my knitting life as in my personal life. I changed job for a new one in my field (I'm translating video games... isn't it fun or what!), my boyfriend got his knee surgery, and I had a bunch of stuff to do in between. And I knitted! A secret project that will be soon revealed, and the pattern that was suppose to be published on October 1st. Talking about it...

Well, you guys remembered my self-given challenge (publish one pattern at the beginning of the month each month)? I guess that one didn't stood up! Second month and I am already behind! But my boyfriend told me "Why don't you take your time and publish when you are ready?". Well because... yeah, because what? I decided to stop stressing and worrying about it. After all, knitting is suppose to be fun, not stressful!

Oh and sorry.... no pictures this time :-(
