Remote Cozy

See what happens if you mock a knitter/crocheter with requests for toilet paper cozies and remote cozies?  Eventually they will grant your request.  Just maybe not how you imagined.  :)  (Ed, you were really a good sport!)

 Knitcircus Summer 2011 is live today!  I swear that every issue of this magazine gets better than the last.  I'm so proud to be a part of it.  I've got a scarf pattern on page 72 called Tiltillating. It's knit out of laceweight  silk ( I used Andrea by Schaefer Yarn Company).  I'm just stunned by how beautiful the photography is.

The issue is brimming with fabulous summer knits.  I especially love the Girly Gansey by Marie Grace Smith, the Mughal Shawl by Kieran Foley, and the Star Rib Mesh Market Bag by Paula Levy.

I'll be heading to Maryland tomorrow to visit my cousin and attend the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.  I am so so excited!  If you see me, come say hi!  Oh, as for the weird remote cozy, I don't want to spoil the surprise, so I'll post pictures after I give it to the intended victim recipient.

2 More Days!

2 more days until the Knitcircus summer issue!  I have a little pattern in it, and from the sneak peeks I've seen, it looks like its going to brimming with gorgeous patterns.

In other news, I've just spent the afternoon crocheting a rather odd cozy.  In general, I do not knit cozies.  (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)  But I have been mocked and the recipient richly deserves this special special cozy.  Pics tomorrow.
