Though not my style, I now understand why people are knitting so many of them – they’re a quick knit and they’re so simple once you figure out how you want yours to look. Tight ruffles, loose ruffles, somewhere in between.
I brought a ball of ruffle yarn home from Michael’s so that I could give it a try and see what all the hoopla is about – and also be able to teach it because there have been requests! And in a matter of a few minutes, I’ve figured it out.
I don’t have the ball band (because I had to give it to my manager for accounting purposes) but it’s a multi-shade yarns in blues – gray blue to teal to turquoise – with a little bit of silvery sparkle at the end.
It’s a fun project and I look forward to adding it to my November teaching calendar!
Yesterday my wonderful, handsome (pretty?), super special mail delivery person had this envelope of yarn-y love for me! Woo-Hoo! I am so excited to get knitting!
These are the skeinlettes from Koigu yarns that I won – actually the contest was on the Koigu Facebook page but the yarn was send by Jimmy Beans Wool.
Gotta get my needles out and warm them up … I have exactly 18 days to design and knit a darling roll-neck sweater for my little Lola (who hates wearing clothes)!
I’m thinking that since she was named after “Senorita Lolita” from Damn Yankees, something a little sassy and saucy, a little glitzy, maybe a ruffle but certainly lots of color … because we all know that “Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets”!
Give me a few days and I’ll have a plan! Knitting to win! Go!
