Here’s a look at my Rhinebeck project. With a little luck and lots of knitting, I will get it done in time. It is Icarus from the summer 2006 issue of Interweave Knits . I am using Alpaca Silk from Blue Sky Alpaca. This is a heavier yarn than the pattern calls for but I had to have this color. It reminds me of a Weimeraner! woof.
Since I am too distracted (by a little black pug!) to think in complete sentences and/or paragraphs at the moment, how about a list?
- First off, opine please. Before too long (read: long & cold winter) the Boar and I will need some new garage doors. Follow the middle link to the steel carriage house ones and tell me what you think of those wooden look alikes.
- a vacation picture for Vicki! This is from a historic carousel by our hotel. If you’re interested, here is the background. It was full of different animals – even a mule!
- lastly, if you live nearby you may be interested in going to see Christine Lavin and her Knitting Circle. Unfortunately, I will not be able to go : (
Hi annie, I LOVE the tuscany design. Any of them would be beautiful on your charming home. :)
Love the doors — almost all of them, really — but need to see your garage. ; )
Thanks for the giraffe! I love menagerie carousels!
I like the doors I think they would go very nicely on your garage.
I love that carousel too. The animals are adorable.
I like the doors a lot, especially the Tuscany version. But a shot of your garage would be most helpful.
I knew I would like the doors even before I saw the picture. “Steel Carriage House doors”? Definitely. We need to see a picture of your garage/house before we can decide on the exact model, though. Unless your abode is quite rustic-looking, I’d go with the Tuscany.
I like the Tuscany ones as well! :) good luck on the marathon knittin g:)
Christine Lavin would be so cool!
Love love love alpaca silk, dreamy stuff.
Unfortunately, I am also unable to attend Christine’s knitting circle.
Love the color wool your using. I love carousels. Need to see a pic of your house, but I really like those doors.
i prefer tuscany
and when i read “christine lavin” i thought “linda lavin”
