Friday Evening

Friday nights 'round here are not too exciting
but are productive in my knitting realm.
X  X  X  X  X  X
Worked on a couple of projects.

*  *  *  *  *  *
This is Honey Cowl in Malabrigo Worsted Azules


So much fun to knit even with the larger needle.  
Am lovin' the rolled edge.  Usually not a good thing when the stockinette edge curls.  
Most times we begin a scarf or cowl with a ribbed bit to counteract the curling.  
This time it's making a wonderfully soft edge for this cozy cowl.  
Lovin' it ! ! ! 

Also, worked on Intagliata Henley for a while, too.
The Madelinetosh yarn so beautiful ♥ ♥ ♥ 
This is my first pullover and I'm here to tell you - - -I'm anxious about the project.
Big undertaking.
When I think about all the measurements to take into consideration.
~ ~  << my worried brows.

The color is wonderful to work with and 
should be an easy one for me to wear.
Now, fingers crossed that it holds up to my expectations.

If not, Hey ! ! ! , it's only yarn.

Tea time ! ! ! ! 
must pour,
set the timer,
and wait for the brew.
Time for a cuppa Chai

See my Tea Toter with my Chai ?
It's for my purse tea bag stash.
Took just a short time to make.
Great left-over stash buster and excellent for gifting.
I was put on to this cute project by a sweet friend who saw it on The Knit Girllls podcast


All three of these patterns are wonderful, each in their own respect.
If you're a little bit interested, just follow those links I put up there for ya.
A couple of the patterns are free ! ! ! ! 
Let me know what you think.

  1. you have been busy knitting, all looking lovely.

    1. Thanks, Lyn. I love my knitting and tea time.
      Oh, can't forget the yarn.
      ♥ ♥ ♥ that yarn ! ! !


  2. Sounds like you and I are doing the exact same thing! I have been knitting away on my Abigail and drinking lots of tea, just getting ready to start the ribbing. Lots of rain falling here, hooray! Thanks for the tea cozy link, might try to whip up a few tomorrow.
    I can't wait to see your pullover, you my dear, are a master knitter and I know it will be great!
    Much love.

    1. Thanks for the vote of confidence in my knitting ability, Tracey.
      Love the idea of knitting sweaters from the top down, so why did I pick a bottom up for my first? Am loving the entire procedure of planning it and knitting it - and, of course, re-knitting it.
      Your Abigail will be wearable while mine will be at the starting gate.
      But, that's okay. It'll get there.

  3. Hey! Thanks for the link love! :-) Your other projects are looking great too! Love that Mal yarn. Mmmmmmm

    1. Seems as though Malabrigo dominates my WorksInProgress - worsted, sock and lace.
      Thanks for visiting and Commenting.
      I've been browsing your blog and like the set-up. I'll be back often.

  4. Gerry, I am sure your sweater is going to turn out AMAZING!!! Can't wait to see it all finished - but no pressure! LOL

    One day... one day... you'll make a knitter out of me yet! Just love that little tea purse. Oh- and your recent purchases (last post or two) are so gorgeous! I'll say night night God Bless now before I start drooling over my keyboard - it all gets a bit messy! he he...

    Big hugs! Vikki xoxo

    1. Vikki, Vikki, look whose talking.
      Your about as busy creating lovelies as anyone around this World.
      Love your blog. You've so many fantastic creative ideas
      Can't write more at the moment
      must fix another cuppa and sort out my scrapbook paper and my empty spools. Oh, and lovingly touch my Singers along the way.

  5. You beat me to it!!! Love the Tea Toter. The cowl and sweater are coming right along. Can't wait to see them "in person".

    1. The 'designer' of this cutie has a great blog ! ! !
      Simply Notable - - - - -
      I'm enjoying reading this one

  6. Great knitting projects and such lovely colours!

    1. Thanx for the compliments on my projects, Joanne
      Color! ! ! isn't that what it's all about in both our quilting and knitting.. . . that and texture. Isn't it all GRAND ! !

  7. You really MUST stop doing so many cool things. Now I have TWO new patterns to make!!!! Love that Mom blog. it's neato!!!!!!

    1. Tell me about it.
      Startitis is an affliction.

      Oh, yes, I think
      is going to be a very interesting blog to follow.


  8. Thanks for the great pattern links, Gerry. I LOVE the Honey Cowl pattern and have favorited it in Ravelry. And that tea envelope is adorable! Nice way to use up leftover yarn.

    Malabrigo is one of my favorite yarns to knit with.

    1. Thanks for visiting Stacy. So happy to have you drop by and find a thing or two interesting about my Friday night post.
      Since then I've made progress on the Honey Cowl and am at the half-way mark with the yarn, the Intagliata has been ripped back. Am going to co again and get a flying start this time.
      The tea bag pouches are quick and make cute envelopes that we can re-purpose them to hold other goodies.
      Seems as though my Stash has several Malabrigo yarns - Rios has caught my attention lately. Trying not to buy one of each colorway LOL
