Some fresh Air.

So I switched to the new blogger...can you tell? Whatever.

Anyway, that zipper. Oh that zipper. I hate the zipper I bought for Olive. I think the teeth are too big...it "hills" out as I wear it.
I am not happy.
I think I need to search on line for another zipper. I usually go to a fabric store in town or a taylor's...but they carry all the same. Maybe I'll take a picture to show you my problem tomorrow...

I needed to start something new...



This is AIR from Kim Hargreaves Calmer Collection book. I have had the yarn and the book for quite a while and keep going back to this pattern...so I decided to just cast on for it.

This is the year of using up the stash, people.

Now, some answers...
Olive is from Lanes Du Nord's Simple Knits.

I did hand stitch the urban aran zipper...and I am still waiting for a picture of my brother wearing it...TOM...WEAR IS THE PICTURE...evidently he wears it every day.

My EZ blocking board is from Joann's on line...I think they have a 40% off coupon right now.

Hopefully I'll have that zipperful post this week!

I hate that you work now!!! I so miss your (practically) every day blogging!!!! Well, the new AIR looks great. Good luck with the zip!

Yeah, what Kim said. Can't you find a way to get paid for blogging? (and when you do, please share it with me ;-)

Do they still sell "invisible" zippers? They have the tiniest teeth. I know the zipper hunt well. They seldom please.

Thank you so much for the Joann tip. I got some Rosewood knitting needles that were already on sale and then they took an addition 40% off!

AIR looks like a beautiful pattern. I look forward to seeing the whole.

Nice, Air looks like it's going to be an interesting knit. I hear you loud and clear on the working=less time for knitting. I miss the long days!

bummer... either they ran out, took the blocking board off the website, or I'm a complete moron. I can't find the blocking board anywhere, just a couple of kits... fabric w/ printed lines... that you have to put together yourself.

What yarn are you using for Air? Doesn't look like Calmer.
