Knitting on Tuesday

First and foremost...If you are not a member of the Summer Swatch Me! Group you had better run right over there and join up. Along with a sampler there are lots and lots of side projects, and I have by no means knit them all, so you end up with a lot of bang for your buck, not to mention a ready made stash of gifts for the holidays if you can bear to part with them once you have finished knitting!

The third side pattern is this wonderful pair of mitts. I knit mine in Adagio and had one heck of a time trying to match the repeats of color before I gave up and called them close enough!

But that isn't all that I got out of the group over the past few weeks...one of the talented knitters, Jeri is turning her sampler into a top down raglan sweater. Not being quite as talented as she is, I couldn't compete with that sampler variation, but blatantly stole the idea to make a new version of Autumn in New York.

A Stroll Down the Hudson
Top Down Raglan Shrug based on AINY by Bad Cat Designs
Jade Sapphire 2 ply Cashmere, Slate
Size 4 and 5 (US) needles.

I should have stuck with the smaller needles, this turned out just a touch large on TDK....but she loves it any way!
