Yarns about Yarn

My "Other Best Male Friend" (hereafter "OBMF") gave me the nickname of "Contessa." I have something in common with one countess -- the Countess of Nerole. She and I both favor the scent of orange blossoms. At one masquerade my OBMF threw, I went as the Comtesse des Feuilles (she was better known as Jane Austen's cousin). Finally, in a novel I wrote, which has yet to be published, the protagonist is also a countess. Hence, my choice of the name, "Knitting Countess."

I have been knitting since I was 20, and I am even designing. Don't look for my designs in INTERWEAVE just yet, however.

Love not only autumn colors and cooler temperatures but it’s the most likely time to find attractive clothing!

Yes! This was one of my first posts/reblogs! This really struck a chord with me. After months of 3-digit temperatures (or so it feels sometimes even if it’s only 80+ degress F!), the approach of autumn is a welcome relief! Time to bring out those beautiful earth-toned sweaters, scarves, gloves, hats, and shawls!

I think I’m going to send just this image as a response to a certain relative who requested I make multiple baby gifts for her friends’ children’s unborn children that I do no know. For free.

Good for you! If she insists, tell her what the time alone would cost along with the supplies and the doctor’s bills for carpal tunnel, etc.

If you have never checked out SuAmi’s work, you should! (x)

It’s items like these that make lace knitters like us feel positively HUMBLE!

Another crescent shaped shawl designed by Susanna IC completed! This is named “Ferywen" and is meant to have a Celtic theme. I used Malabrigo Lace (ordered from Eat.Sleep.Knit in Smyrna, Georgia) in the “Vaa” colorway.
