Here is the beginning of my newest project, Juliet from Debbie Bliss's Rialto collection. Found a few people on Ravelry who've done this knit with some mixed reviews. I think I will love the finished product, but the beginning, as you can see, is about a million inches of garter stitch. OK, only 10 inches, but it might as well be the same thing. The gauge is 48 rows to 4 inches. Forty-eight rows to 4 inches, people. That's 12 rows per inch. That is about a million years of beige garter stitch. Okay, now that I've whined, you're looking at 8 inches done already, so I am perservering.

I finished up this little confection this past week. It is a sample for my LYS, Renaissance Yarns. The pattern is the Simple Raglan from Blue Sky Alpacas, done in the new Debble Bliss bamboo blend called Primo. It was a quick easy knit, loads of mindless stockinette, but sometimes that's soothing. The yarn comes in a ton of really fun colors.

Here is the new addition to the family.....I've named her Lola. I've wanted one of these for ages, and found a brand new one on e-bay for a great price, so here she is! And here she is modeling my latest FO, the Louisa Harding Muse cardi.
