As promised. . .

Here's a picture of my finished Juliet being worn!

I thought it would be something for transitioning from summer to fall, but I may find myself wearing it over a slim fitting knit top as in the picture. I quite like it!

My knitting queue for the winter seems to be getting longer. I need to stop looking at knitting books. There are a couple of things in the new IK that I will have to make. But the real kicker is the new pattern that Stitch Diva will be putting out soon. They sent a newsletter about it and I just have to have it! It is called Giselle and it was designed by Marnie Maclean.

I am particularly fond of the cropped version. This sweater just cries out to be knit in some type of silk--maybe Tilli Tomas. She does discount her stuff at Sheep & Wool, so I think I have a plan! Meanwhile, I am loving knitting the Tree Jacket. The yarn is like a dream!

The weather is turning colder. I am breaking out Sahara to wear for the first time tomorrow. Goody, goody!

I guess he didn't appreciate my intruding upon his quiet time!


  1. Wow! Juliet came out beautifully!! Not that I had any notion that it wouldn't :) I REALLY like the Stitch Diva sweater!!

  2. Juliet really looks great - I'm thinking of undoing the bindoff on mine and making it longer. Mine is just really large though all around and I probably would need to redo the whole bottom section.

    I like that Stitch Diva pattern!

  3. love your juliet, as usual you did a fabulous job on it! i think it'll be a great sweater to wear over a long sleeve tee in winter.
