It was beauuuuutiful here this weekend. Alas, I was stuck inside studying (although Friday I did go out for a short bike ride). Damn. Ah, well, many more nice days to come, right?

I finished the knitting of the Balance cardi (hm, it needs a name):

balance without buttons

Now it just needs buttons! Seven for the front and one on each cuff. I love the picot hem.

Yes, I know that the colour looks completely different in these photos from those in the last entry. Really none of them are right – it’s really this colour:


(Image borrowed, without hotlinking of course, from Purl Soho.)

Lots of other knitting as well, but I’ll have to save those and dole them out as blog fodder for the week! Check out my flickr if you’re impatient.

Oh! One other thing though, I got some pretties in the mail. They’re from Ling Glass on Etsy. I looooove them, and I want others! The red leaf is 1.25 inches high.


P.S. I’ve added a bit more stuff to my destashing photoset, including a lot of 990 yards (!) and also lowered the prices on the other stuff remaining, so that the price now includes shipping. Buy my stuff, please!

    Love the sweater, in all its colour variations, and thanks for the pendants – because I don’t have enough stuff already…

    Nice sweater–is this a for sale one?

    I’m not going to look at the glass (beautiful though it is) but I will check out the yarn.

    The sweater is gorgeous and I love the glass. I checked the site and it just says lead free solder is used. Is there any other metal used? I couldn’t tell.

    Love the new sweater design! Are you going to put it on the site or offer it at the store. BTW, thanks for sending the patterns. The handwritten corrections remind me of looking at my grandmother’s much loved cookbooks.

    Pretty sweater! I too have a few things from Ling Glass, I like that vendor very much.
