The Art of Knitting.

I’m not about to start getting all philisophical about knitting as art, I just didn’t know how else to wrap up this post in one catchy title. :)

This week has been a very knitty week!! Wednesday night I trekked out to Knit Happens for the launch of Neighborhood Fiber Co’s new line of yarn, Watershed. It’s a Merino/SeaCell © blend in UBERTASTY colors and $1 of the proceeds goes to help clean up the Anacostia River!!! HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?! Think globally, act locally, right?

Here is the fabulous Karida and the crack she brought to peddle:

And this is the hank of Logan Circle that made it home with me:


Maeve was there, with her TOTALLY ENVIABLE Tangled Yoke Cardigan!!!

Must. Knit. That. Sweater!

I was about to ask her where she got that gorgeous yarn from, when Holly told me that the newlywed dyed it herself!!! NICE JOB, girlie!!!

It was great to hang out with the girls at KH *AND* I got some quality time to plug away at my CPH!

The Back.

I’ve finished the left front and now I’m up to the armholes on the back! Progress! Maybe I’ll be finished by Christmas? :-D HEY! Maybe I’ll be finished by Thanksgiving!!!!!! hee! A girl can dream…

Meanwhile, at the vibepad, I’ve *finally* (a year after the move?) started doing some decorating!!! Here is the new addition to my living room:

my new painting.

a closer look.

I really like the painting, but I’m not in LOVE with the wall I put it on. I might re-hang it in the bedroom. IIII don’t know. We’ll see. But YAY! ART!

Have a good weekend, lovelies!

    It was great seeing you amidst the yarn crack on Wednesday (sorry I’m such an awkward freak in person!). I love your new painting, too – maybe Mai’s right about a smaller wall? Hmmm.

    It’s such a great idea to use yarn buying for good, especially for the desperately-in-need-of-help Anacostia. Karida’s awesome. I got way over-excited when I met her one time because I love her colors.

    You’re making such good process on the CPH, there’s no question that it will be done for Christmas. Enjoy knitting it, it looks beautiful!

    I totally LOVE the color you picked out!

    Your CPH is looking great, loves cables and the color you picked is my kinda color.

    Your painting is too cool!

    I love your little bird painting! At first I thought it was just black (in the distant photo) but I love the colours murking out in the back there. Sweet :)
