Have I Mentioned…

…that I love Laura Perin designs? As part of my plan for the year, I wanted to spend my weekends either knitting or with my needlepoint. Last weekend, I decided my rotation was incomplete without a Laura Perin in it, so I started Color Cubes.  It is fabulous fun. I am working with the alternate color she gives for Splendor, so this a darker, more jeweltoned version of the cover photo.

This was my progress after two days:

Color Cubes by Laura Perin

As always, the chart is a dream to read, the pattern works up quickly (think immediate gratification here) and the color usage is phenomenal. I hope to have this done by the end of the month.

My other weekend project, the scarf I’m knitting, was regulated to my Super Bowl watching time.  I’m working on a very simple k3, p3 scarf to get my knitting legs back again.  The yarn is a wool Noro that I love!!!!

This is my progress to date, I am just into my third ball of yarn.

Aren’t the colors pretty?

This week’s stitching time will be devoted to The Advent Sampler. I’ll share progress photos later in the rotation.

I want to thank everyone who has left a comment recently or sent an e-mail. It is such a wonderful blessing to hear from each of you. Sheri, if you’re out there and reading. I did try to send you a note using the e-mail tag associated with your comments. It got bounced back to me twice. So please, please, please….send me an e-mail so I can send you my thanks in person.

Well, that’s about all for today. I hope the week’s beginning has been wonderful for all.

Many blessings,

Julie

    I’ve had one of her designs (fully kitted) in my stash for quite some time. I really need to clone myself, or become a kept woman, so I can do all the fun stuff in my stash and keep training! LOL

    Looking great Julie – my you have made a lot of progress since I saw you last. I’ll have to add this pattern of Laura’s to my wish list. 🙂
