Momma's Day

Special shout out to all those that nurture, care, feed, & teach the little ones (human & furry). I hope you are receiving your thanks on a continual basis so today can just consist of a really good meal & a chance to relax (lol).

Finished the first panel of the tank top & desparately needed a break from stockinette stitches. After a midnight raid on my pattern library (yeah, a bit of insomnia), I decided to start the short sleeve cardigan from Vogue Knitting's Spring/Summer 2007 magazine. The eyelet lace pattern is a joy to work & I'm using the eggplant rayon yarn I got last weekend at the sheep & wool festival. Here's a peek:

You can't see the back of the cardi but it has eyelet lace & ribbing topped off with stockinette...... I just can't escape it. At least I'm getting to use my new Signature Stiletto needles. The pointed tips are exquisite. Gotta find a way to purchase an entire set (Maybe my girls will read this before birthday, Christmas, or next Momma's Day!)

Happy Mother's Day! I've seen the advertisement for the Signature Stiletto needles, but I'm afraid of what my finger tips would look like, I am constantly puncturing my finger.
