A Switch to a Swatch

I told myself that once I completed 50 percent of Sophie's Shawl (a feat that I accomplished this weekend) I was allowed to begin swatching for Claudette.


I'm very happy to have found a new use for this Blue Sky Alpaca & Silk. It's terrific yarn. I guarantee that it'll be warm and cozy on my head.

It's hard to tell from the photo (new year's resolution #1: take less-crappy knitting photos), but I'm working a swatch of the basketweave pattern.

This will be a rare occasion when I am two-timing my projects. I hope that they don't get jealous!


Basketweave always knits up so pretty. The photo's great, you can see the little wisps of alpaca. ^_^

the hat pattern is freakin' wonderful. I can't wait to see the result in this gorgeous yarn.

Hi There,

Have just stumbled across your site and wanted to drop you a quick comment to say 'I love it' !!

Hope you don't mind but I am going to make you my first link on my new blog :)

(Of course, if you do mind .. just let me know and I will remove).


I'm with you on the twist collective! It's amazing. And that hat?!?! What more could you say about it? It's perfect.
