Cabled Cowl 
Since last week, I managed to finish the cabled cowl in Malabrigo Rastita yarn. I am very happy with the cowl how it turned out.
This is the pattern I have used:
Gradient Cable Cowl

My next project to work on is a hat named Neva. I picked the yarn and then we had few days of summer heat.
Neva Hat - WIP
So instead on working on the hat, I got distracted and made these - a watermelon coaster and dishcloth.
I still have one more size to finish, and I would like to add fabric layer to the large coaster and the small glass coaster.

Ruby, toy mystery KAL
At the moment I have another toy mystery KAL hosted in my group. It's always fun and at the end you have a finished toy.

The link to the pattern is here:

Some of the other projects in the works include these:
Lapis Cowl

The pattern for this cowl is at the test knitting and editing stage, and once its finished the pattern will be available. The cowl is knitted in DK weight Superwash Merino and Silk yarn from  biscotte yarns

The pattern for these bowls is also at the testing stage, and will be available soon. These are super quick and use Knitpicks Super Tuff Puff yarn in jumbo weight. I made both of these bowls in just a couple of hours.

Work in Progress

Cloudy Day Wrap - week 1
About two weeks ago, I started to work on my new design, Cloudy Day Wrap, knitted in Knitpicks Gradient Stroll yarn in color named "Sea You Later".

About the same time we also adopted a puppy from animal shelter and somehow my knitting time evaporated.  But things are getting better, and I did find few moments in between the chaos to sit down and knit. The puppy usually keeps me company.

Cloudy Day Wrap - week 2
 I am about half way through the work on the wrap and I just love how the color changes from dark to light. The second skein of yarn will be knit in reverse order, from light to dark. Once the sample is done and the pattern is written and edited and tested, we still need to take good photographs. I already envision the photo shoot taking place somewhere on a beach.

Thank you for visiting.
