Happy Wednesday!

Hello!

Have you seen the new Twist Collective? I am totally in love with Abrazo! I just wish that I enjoyed knitting with lace weight yarn. I've started several lace projects in the past....alas, none have gotten very far. Maybe I don't have the right needles? I must give it another try.

Also, if you are in the mood for a fantastic cookie, Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies, from the current issue of Everyday Food magazine, are amazing! Sorry, I don't have any pictures but others do and have written out the recipe. They are like chocolate snickerdoodles (if you leave out the cayenne like I did), yum!

Here is the quilt I showed you a snippet of recently: And these are a few others I have listed recently as well. (see more pictures in my shop)Lastly, here is The-Sweater-That-Has-Taken-Way-Too-Long. It is blocking right now, which means I should have some FO pictures here in a few days!

Oh Emily! I love the colored pencils quilt -- and I want it.

Desperately!

that pattern looks like it could be a decent first lace project. i like using lightweight grippy pointy needles for lace, so i prefer kp harmonies. i'd suggest experimenting with lace facecloths or something to see what works for you. i know a lot of people like slippery needles for lace.

Is that Ingenue? Can't wait to see it on you.

Amazing quilts!

My favorite from the new Twist is Wallflower. I've never knit any color work, so that may be coming after the shawlette I'm knitting!

Lovely quilts! And your sweater looks very pretty too. Looks like a nice shade of gray!

your quilts are amazing!!!!

i don't have it in me to knit lace, but i must say i have heard from many that the only needles to use are the ones addi makes just for lace knitting. maybe those would make it fun for you. ?

and chocolate snickerdoodles? that just may have to be our next cookie! thank you!
