i know these aren't swatches...but they are as cuddly as yarn. my bunny, allen, and my kitty, mabel. together for the first time. mabel seems unfazed for the most part. allen was very interested in her, though, i couldn't get a good snap of it (using photobooth...the only lens close-by at the time).
the stripe cowl neck is coming right along...this will be the first pattern featured on my website...both in progress :)
behind the stripe swatch is Aspen...a hearty yarn...surely this yarn could contribute to my winter warmth! so, i'm thinking about ordering some and making another project for my little web shop.
below are some snaps from Rhinebeck...what a weekend. lots and lots of knitters, different fibers and, my personal favorite, all the fiber animals!
