You Know How It Is
I'm learning to love my designs, and re-visit them. This is the Lyubi (loo-bee) Blanket from Doggie Knits. I knit the larger size for a wrap for myself, using (what else) Briar Rose Fibers Robusta. I intended to wear the wrap at YarnCon, but forgot it, and used one of the book samples for a wrap. Then a brilliant person suggested that I work it up in a finer yarn for some more drape. So, yesterday I started one in some brilliantly colored Fourth of July. Also started a Clapotis after seeing a friend's magnificent example knit in sock weight yarn.
Another knitting friend told me that she saw a review of Doggie Knits in a magazine, and described it as "glowing." I didn't see one in Interweave Knits or Vogue Knitting this fall, so I stopped at Barnes and Noble yesterday, and found it on page 8 of the December issue of Knit N'Style. Yes, it was. Thanks!
