And they are back . . . Friday’s Favs. It’s been quite a bit of time since I’ve actually posted one of these. Thought it was perfect to start back with one of my all time favorite pass times, knitting. I’ve blogged about some of my favorite patterns before here, here, and here, this one might actually be my fav though.
It’s been a busy few months but right before Christmas, I took a little time off and visited my parents in Florida. When I travel I always have to bring with me some knitting. Makes the time go by so fast and I love everything about the activity. I even finished 2 other sweaters that I started way back in early 2012 and then started this one. Might still be blogging about the other two, if I ever get photos of them. But for now, it’s all about the Papillon!!! It is all knit in one piece from the top down, which I love, so there is no sewing involved. It was a pretty fast knit. I’m not gonna lie, there was lots of ripping out and starting over involved until I got the lace pattern down. Thankfully the yarn was perfect for this type of abuse. Back a few months back I was at the thrift store, which I visit quite often, and came across this gorgeous Rowan yarn. Well, the color was not gorgeous . . . according to my knitting group I only knit blue. They are in fact correct, I don’t know why but any shade of blue/turquoise yarn just makes me happy! The deal on this yarn was just too good, so I decided to make it work, and once I found this pattern I knew it would be perfect for the yarn. Honestly it has kinda grown on me, the color that is. Whatcha ya think?
