i've chosen a colour!

choosing colours are always overwhelming for me. i don't know why that is.. but i do know that i totally appreciate all of your input on the colour for my new georgia cardigan.


i am so excited to cast this one on!
in my last post about it, i was choosing between cayenne and ginger. and then i discovered that i also could use oxblood. as there was enough yardage of that one too..

so then i put out a shout out for help on the facebook page as well.. and what do you know, there was a definite favourite....
and so, without further ado... the winning colour is...


i don't usually knit in brighter colours. but with sweet georgia yarn at my fingertips, and her colour selection.. how could i not!?
i had a very wonderful helper while trying my hand at the swift and ball winder. owen really thought it was the bees knees...  yes. wouldn't you know, i always wind my skeins by hand...

i clearly would be forever knitting up this cardi if that were the case. hahah. with a preschooler (and hyper one at that) and a kitty.. these babies would never get wound!

knitting with sweet georgia yarn is such a treat for me! especially a sweater's worth! this will be by far my most luxurious cardi. i've definitely worked hard for it... and i'm using up some gift certificates. all of my sample knitting is a huge help towards this purchase.
and really, i can't think of a better pattern to knit this to. weee!

and now i've got my little preschooler wondering why i'm not working on his project right now. a new stuffie for him...which i'll probably be able to show you very soon!!!! and so i need to get a knittin'. and a swatchin'! (when he's not looking). haha.

what kind of things do you have on the go? any fave crafting going on? what yarn would be a big treat for your hands to work with? anything you're coveting? i'd love to hear about it! come chat... coffee's on, and piping hot. xo

  3. wow! that is going to be so gorgeous! I think that color is going to look great on you. I'm saving up for some sweater yarn now. I'm hoping to make knitbot's featherweight cardigan, hopefully in some madelinetosh lace (i'm thinking cove, but not sold 100% on that color). gonna be saving for a little while though! happy knitting!

  5. Oh that color is going to be amazing!
    I always have a pair of socks going, I have a love affair with them. My treat yarn would have to be Sweet Basil Yarns or any Indie Dyers.
