This was a super fun pattern to knit. I am a 'Toe-up" person normally, but I plan on making more of these as Birthday presents.
BTW - please ignore the messy desk. Summer at work= messy desk. Don't ask me why.
More blocking adventures! These have been finished for a while, but I needed to find some time to block it all.
These loverly pictures are of my new table runner and placemats. I basically adapted the Branching Out pattern from Knitty.com. The yarn is a locally produced yarn called "Summer Spun" from Hopyard Spinnery. It is cotton and silk spun into a lovely, textury yarn. I usually don't like orange, but I figured it is a nice summery dining room color. It reminds me of creamsicles.
