More exciting blogging...

I decided to work on the collar of Bea last night...to do something different. I steam iron blocked and joined the shoulders...then knit the collar.



Exciting, I know.
Well, I figured you didn't want to see the 3 additional inches knit on the sleeves.
I'll save that for another day!

I am going to be working a little project for Purly...finally...could this be what I have been waiting for?! I get to knit with her fabulous yarn that many of you have had the pleasure of using (I am trying to be on a yarn diet...yeah, right...I won't be able to hold out much longer). Can't wait!

Very pretty collar. I'm trying to be on a yarn diet too - and it is hard!

You can't deny progress. Not much further for an FO and it looks lovely.

You're almost there! Yarn diets suck, don't they!
