Fetching Klaralund



Here is Klaralund . It was a fun knit in Noro, color 244. It is too hot here to wear it. Truth is it's a bit snug on me. Perhaps I should have blocked it before sewing it together. That would definitely be more doable them me getting smaller, although I haven't totally given up that idea yet. Could happen!









Here also is Fetching in Cascade Heathers. I got this yarn for purple month, and was going to make a one skein wonder, but think these definitely were a better choice for that yarn. I have quite a bit left, too. It is a bit tricky to take a picture of both hands! This is a very cool pattern...the thumbs and picot cast-off, especially. The cable cast-on was tedious, imo, but mercifully short.



And, last but not least, here is the back side of Diamond Head today. It's a little tiny, but I liked the clouds.

Klaralund is so pretty--I hope you'll be able to wear it sometime. Have you tried wet-blocking after seaming it?

Wow, your Fetchings turned out absolutely gorgeous! They're #1 on my "Have-to-do" list right now, and seeing yours sure inspired me to start them this weekend! But will you ever be able to wear them in Hawaii? Same goes for Klaralund, but perhaps you'll be getting some cooler evenings there too? I totally love your Klara though, she's adorable! Fantastic job you've been doing!

Again, amazing FOs, Barb! I love those gloves, I need to make myself a pair.

I really like the colors you chose for your Klaralund- will you ever indulge us with a model shot?
