World Cup Knitting

I missed the Olympic knitting because I just missed it.. Regreted I didn't get up for it. Decided not to miss the World Cup challenge though. I am knitting a jacket based on the one in Alterknits but with much different yarns and some extras. The back is purple Debbie Bliss Cathay; the front will be Cathay in Pink. As of now the sleeves will be Noro Lily in a spring green. I have done a small Celtic knot in intarsia in the upper mid back using Noro Sakura. I'll add some embellishment to this and will use the Sakura again either in the lower flap or the front pocket flap. Having fun mixing the yarns. Will even use some Maggi'e Linen in gold somewhere. It's more sedate than it sounds.

I'm revving up for my move to Charlotte Yarn to teach. I'm excited that I may be able to do some classes based on children's sweaters. We just don't have young mom's at the Sewing Bird. I love the fun of children's clothers and the fact that they knit up so quickly. Also---fit isn't such a stress. At some age they will wear it and kids are far less picky than adults about that kind of thing.

The Guild begins a new year and I do so hope it will grow. I hope we can get some energetic new members. Charlotte could support a very large guild with great benefits to many people.

Gave platelets today. A small thing, but so badly needed. The folks at the Red Cross are always so caring and kind.
