Mirèio is now available on Ravelry! 

It is knit in Mountain Colors Winter Lace Junior and I discovered this yarn in a rather serendipitous fashion. It was the day after I had arrived in Denver and my sister decided to take us for a drive in the mountains. While on the drive I got car sick and had to ask her to pull over. When she finally did I opened the door stepped out and right in front of me was the doorway to The Quilted Purl. That was the best cure for car sickness ever.

My husband and I are going to be separated for a while so our friend made us the most wonderful gift. A mini version of us so I’ll always have Soshi with me and Soshi will always have me.  Thank you so much @cukr

New pattern for spring! Avila- a feathery lace shawl.

My most recent finished project. It is a finger/lace weight hand spun done on my drop spindle. The fiber is from Countess Ablaze and it is 50/50 baby llama and silk. I love her yarns and dyed roving. The colors are so magical.

Matchy-matchy. Mountain Colors Winter Lace Junior in Harmony Aspen and KnitPicks Caspian.

Finished a small Christmas project. This was a cross stitch kit from Olympus called Scandinavian cute cross stitch. I think the back was meant to be plain (couldn’t read the Japanese instructions) but I borrowed from the front motif to make the back.

And just for fun a photo of the best Christmas tree ever. It was so beautiful in person.

The new Knitty is out and my Olla mittens are in it!
