What’s in a Name?

Turns out, wielding an iron in this unbearable heat is less than pleasant.  So the sewing on this dress is progressing slowly.  But each stitch does bring me closer, so slow progress is better than none at all!  

And this sweater is almost finished – I just have to find or make myself some suitable buttons.

So many unfinished projects! 

But I just had to do something creative this weekend, even if I am adding to the unfinished pile, so I started another sweater.  Since there are only a few inches of yarn to hold at this point, it is not terribly hot to handle.

I have a purple obsession, so this yarn was an obvious choice.  However, I do not believe I ever noticed the color name:  Velveteen!  How yummy is that!?

The pattern is from A Stitch in Time, Volume 2.  It will eventually have a contrasting collar and floral embellishments if all goes well.

And now I am off to hand wash some sweaters - might as well put the heat in the apartment to good use . . .


  1. That will be beautiful! Stay cool... and send some warmth down under! :)

  2. Cute! I've been eying this pattern too! Can't wait to see how it turns out/1

  3. Oooh, that's on my to knit list, too!

  4. That really is a lovely name - it rolls off the tongue as smoothly as caramel sauce being poured onto vanilla ice cream.
