Aughnacloy sweater

This was such an eye candy for me! The moment I saw this sweater on Maggie Jackson's website, I was doomed. As with all her designs, this was a fun project to do! I am almost sorry it is over...
I have changed a few things: the neckline is higher (I need to be able to wear it to work), and subsequently I had to increase the overall length, and the length of sleeves. Interestingly, I have enough of turquoise linen to make a matching top.

Bosnian Booties

I knitted these for a good friend who is expecting a baby at the end of July. She already knows that it is going to be a boy. The booties were knitted on DPN's, and it was an easy and lovely project. Here is the link to the pattern:

Siren's Heart Gloves

This was a fun project, and it took a little more than a week. The pattern is from "Norsk Strikkedesign", and it is called "Siren's Heart". There are gloves, vest (my next project), cardigan, hat, and socks, all designed by Mette Handberg. The yarn - Rauma Finullgarn was ordered from the Nordic Fiber Arts store, and Debbie helped me with suggestions about yarn amounts.

More of My Garden

I had to post these pictures: more irises are blooming now, and I wanted to capture the moment. The unfortunate nets on the background protect these beauties from deer. Surprisingly, they developed a taste for irises, and not an artistic one.
