Finished! Prism, Koigu, Blue Sky, Louet and more.

I personally have gotten a little behind on my knitting. Really thought I'd have that Louisa sequined cardi and the infamous Tilli Tomas black lace dress done by now...but the kids are home for the summer, I'm super-busy with fall buying, the ad biz is busy as usual, and then there was that tennis tournament this weekend...

Anyway, the rest of you seem to be on a roll, finishing projects left and right!

Check out this gorgeous shrug Gina just finished and wore yesterday! When the Prism trunk show arrived (yea verily, just 12 days ago), Gina spotted this shrug design, and picked out her own colors. She took Marisa to freshmen orientation packing 3 different colors for the trim, then made her choice while on the trip - great choice, Gina!

And, true to her vampire reputation, Gina has also completed this stunning wrap in Louet Euroflax Sport. This is a color she had in her stash, but it is now on the way to us from Louet because everyone has seen this beautiful piece on Gina's needles.

Emily, our "super seamer" has finished another sweater. This is her first piece in Koigu, and she is in love! She can wax so eloquent about Koigu's charms, you'd think she was reciting a Shakespearean sonnet. This cardi, in Kersti DK, is from the fab book "Modern Classics" by Louisa Harding.

I took this photo weeks ago and have been looking for a good time to use it. Here is the lovely Janet in a top made from Aurucania Patagonia, one of my favorite cottons. It's organic and vegetable dyed using an ancient Chilean handcrafted process. Also, it's a chunky thick-and-thin weight that knits up super-fast!

Here is Stephen, displaying a little hooded jacket he made for his new nephew, Dakota. The pattern is from Blue Sky Alpacas and he used the Blue Sky Dyed Cottons. (Stephen is like the "Where's Waldo" of the Loops blog - peruse back through the old postings, you'll see his face popping up almost everywhere!)

Now for a different type of show 'n' tell...Billie Anne is really showing 'cause baby Lily is really growing! Here she is "modeling" a book we just got in, "100 Baby Bootees to Knit" by Zoe Mellor. If you've made every hat in "Itty Bitty Hats," it's booty time!

And along with the bootees book came Nicky Epstein's latest, "Knitting Never Felt Better." It's got incredible Epstein-esque patterns, plus some great step-by-steps on felting. Not to be missed!

Thanx for the info on the Tempted Yarns site. I love her yarn and am waiting until after we move to buy new stuff. I have one other question, Will you have colorways of different yarns visable on your site?
