Sweet Talk



I wanted to take several pictures of this little sweetheart to get just the right shot. I kept trying to capture the pure chalky whiteness but I couldn't stand it anymore and I ate it. This little white heart represents my first Project Spectrum effort. You can read about project spectrum here. In February and March I'll be celebrating and capturing the colors blue, white and grey.

Yes. I know it's not February yet. I just couldn't resist a teeny beginning. I will show more restraint hereafter and begin my official color celebration in February.

Where did I get that delicious sweetheart, you ask? Why, it was sent by Emmy, my lovely KMKS partner and it came along with all kinds of things that filled me with delight.




In addition to the classic Necco Sweethearts, she sent:
It was fun, fun, fun to open and I can hardly wait to make myself some flip-top mittens with the blue yarn.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Emmy! I'm giddy.

My Sahara Sweater is coming along FAST. I'm just finishing the lace edging at the bottom of the main sweater. Then, all I have to do is sleeves and the lace panel up front. The freakishly cold winter we're having is serving as great inspiration to knit constantly. This is going to be one warm sweater.

Sewing has been consuming my thoughts ever since I finished the KMKS bag. My yearnings sent me to the bookstore last week, where I indulged in Amy Butler's In Stitches and Sew U by Wendy Mullin.

The next thing I'd like to sew is Amy Butler's Weekender Travel Bag.


I saw this FANTASTIC example made by the very impressive Elliphantom Knits, and I knew I HAD to have one too.

I am filled with creative ideas these days and I can't seem to stop making stuff. The unfortunate downside to that is that I am not sleeping much.

Extremely ironic, since the baby is finally sleeping like a superstar.

Here's to short, deep sleep. cheers!

I am so happy your first swap was a success!!
 
I am glad that you like everything. I don't like for my swap pals to be disappointed. :)

I think I got the size of the dpn's wrong. Sorry. I hope you can use that size for something.

I enjoy seeing that sweet chubby baby hand in the picture. too cute.
 
My favorite thing is the little hand holding the udder cream. I just finished a Butler bag for my swap pal and I am dying to show a picture of it but I guess I have to wait until she sees it first.
 
What a great package, love the colors of the wool. I can't wait to see your finished sweater, as I fell in love with it when I saw the pattern posted on your blog
 
So inspiring to see all you are up to. I think I might try my hand at the Amy Butler bag as well. Especially after seeing the example you posted with the cream little birds on it. Oh my! You amaze me with your energy. xoxo C.
