Knitting ISLAND

There is currently a Knit ISLAND Challenge going on in the Jane Richmond ravelry group. 
And I'm in.

No, I'm not going to Knit City. And I only currently have Grace on the needles.
 But why not seize the opportunity to knit up the entire ISLAND collection. Yeah. 
Not crazypants at all.
These are all stash yarns (bonus) that have been waiting to turn into happy ISLAND knits. 
Here we go! Woohoo!

Squishy Stripes

Who's that sneaky bandit! It's me! Sneaking in an FO instead of a Grace progress report.I'm bad that way. 
I was itching to finish this and so I just bore down and went for it.  
The look of love...bahahah
It also makes for a deliciously squishy cowl when wrapped "just so". 
As you know I am not one to shy away from bold colors. I think of hot pink as a neutral. 
Garter stitch. Stripes. Hot pink. oh.yeah.
I knit this using tosh SOCK (stovepipe) and knit picks stroll glimmer for a little touch of bling.
It hardly makes a quiet statement but it is squishy and warm and I will wear it with everything whether "they" think it matches or not. Holla!
Happy Wednesday y'all.

So it begins...

the blog has been silent on account of a much needed break from everything. 

being at home with my parents was great for me and the girls to "refresh" and get ready for our new routine.

i'm going back to work in September and will have two girls in full-time school. 

 Noelle is so ready!
wish us luck with our new routine! 
hopefully this blog will see a little more activity as we learn to balance everything.
