A what? A Calorimetry. Leave it to my Amy Singer to publish a pattern on her for one.
Pattern: Calorimetry from
Yarn: Artful Yarns Fable
Colorway: Goldie Locks #94
Needles: Lantern Moon US 8 straights

I do need to find the right button for this. Ideas are welcome. I can definitely see more of these in my out!

Are you still submitting your guesses to how many rabbits I have around the house? Here is another one. This is actually a salt and pepper shaker. Although I think she looks best on my quilt rack.

Amy Singer is my knitting hero

We all need one. Someone we look up to that has helped us in our knitting. For me, it is Amy Singer. She, like myself, is allergic to all things wool.

Her No Sheep For You book is fabulous! I do personally hold her responsible for my tastes in expensive non-wool/mohair/angora yarns!

I enjoyed her lecture on Thursday night. I truly felt like a groupie when, at the end, I asked her to sign my book and pose for a picture. This would be Amy Singer signing my book:You can see from Live and Let Learn!'s blog that they even got Amy to play a bit on the Uke. Wool Free and Lovin' Knit also has written up a nice write up on the lecture.

Friday's class was really good. I found that I can actually read a chart. I thought for years that they were so overwhelming that I would cringe and pick a pattern that was written out instead. However, she broke it down in such a manner that I actually get it! So, me and my seasilk are working on a lace pattern called Coraline! How great is that?

I have to say I'm SO GLAD I went!

Any knitting going on here?

Yes. I've been knitting like a mad woman. You can tell the stress level at work is high.

Let me see where I left lutea shell is completed:Pattern: Lutea Lace Shoulder Shell Tank
Yarn: Classic Elite Yarn - Sundance
Colorway: 6204 - Slate Gray/Blue
Needles: US 8 Hiya Hiya 24" Circulars

I'm also progressing on my Shawl that Jazz. The last photo I had of this was about 2 inches in....20 inches later:I am at the point where I'm knitting the edge. So, if you picture a triangle I'm going around two sides, each row is taking me about 45-50 minutes! Yikes! For measurements, it is roughly 25 inches long and 48 inches for wingspan.

I'm determined to finish this within the next week or two. You know, BEFORE I meet Amy Singer!

I also finished my second ruffle scarf. I love these scarves. This one is green.
I also found more bunnies around the house. This one was given to me from my sister-in-law about 17 years ago. You are also getting a bonus bunny as I have a bunny frame in the background that was given to me by my Gram.
