I woke up this morning with a little song playing over and over in my head. It's from the Music Man and the lyrics are actually Pick a little, talk a little but I thought in my case (or yours) they should be changed to the following:
Knit a little, talk a little, knit a little, talk a little,
cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, knit a little more.
Was this a April fool's joke or what? The tune is one that will probably keep running through my head all day. Kind of like being at Disney World in the It's a Small World After All exhibit. Cute at first... then painful as it rolls around in your head.
Ta Da... this is my completed Winter's Rhythm by KellyJ Knits. When I was working on the caplet I knew my step mom, Carol, would just love it. As it turns out I was right. So now Carol is the proud owner of her own Winter's Rhythm.
The yarn is called Squishy and was dyed by Studio June especially for this KAL. The color combo's were awesome and the yarn is truly "squishy".
The Key to Warmth by KellyJ Knits is the first item I managed to complete. The lighter shades of lavender are a mix of Suri, merino and silk that I carded together and spun. The darker accent color is Therapi by South West Trading Company that I purchased at Your Local Yarn Shop.
This pattern lends itself well to smaller amounts of yarn so my plan is to make up several using roving that I've created. We'll see how that goes!

I completed this Town & Country hat by Kalamazoo Knits which was a class I taught at Your Local Yarn Shop.
This a very fun pattern to knit but not one that is very flattering when modeled on me. So, Andrea was nice enough to model it for me during our last KAL at YLYS.
Isn't she love-ly, Isn't she won-der-ful...........I think it's going to be one of my song based days.
Meadowbrook by Stephen West, was my final completed project for the week. Yeah!!!
I've mentioned in another post how much I love, Love, LOVE, Stephen West patterns.
This one is from his book, titled West Knits Book One.
I used Knit One Crochet Too Camelino yarn which is just yummy. I really wasn't making it for anyone in particular. I just loved the yarn and pattern. While I was knitting it my husband asked: who are you making that scarf for? When he found out I had no one in mind, he quickly said he really liked it, hint hint. So now it's his but he was being bashful the day I took the pic.
Here's a pic of my current project. It's a little lacy topdown shell named Chloe by c2knits. I'm using Sierra by Cascade Yarns which is a blend of 80% cotton and 20% wool. More pics to come as I progress along.
