the senses

I have begun work on this, Nora's designs are wonderful and she makes me want to stop all of my projects and imitate her...if I only had time! I changed the needle size to accommodate this Habu that the postman had brought me earlier,I am using size 8's and added stitches to obtain the appropriate measurements... Beginning to knit on these fibers was different,of course...but the texture is very appealing...the swoosh of the paper and silk wrapped together is calming...and makes me not want to stop...it is a bit slippery for the Addi's , I will switch to my Lantern Moons for the fronts and sleeves...it should work up a bit faster with those... The postman brought me this package this past week ... I told you I have been thinking about me lately...and this Sundara is another indulgence that I could not ignore..it is luscious in its silkiness,and the colors are so stunning...this yarn will become this... I will leave you with another treat for your senses...if I could only project this scent of this pineapple sage! I encourage all to touch the herbs in the garden... Happy week to you...

Pineapple Sage!! Very cool. I love scented geraniums - they are fun too. The Sundara yarn will make a stunning Clapotis and I really love the jacket you are making with the Habu - they both will be a great wardrobe additions!

I just love the textures you are working with here. Very nice. Habu is quite amazing. I have some in the stash that is begging to be knit :)

Haven't tried Pineapple Sage yet - sounds like fun. We just have the regular ol' sage in great abundance!

Oh Theresa, thank you for your kind words!

I love the fibres, textures and colours you're working with at the moment and look forward to the finished projects.
