    am I first? wow!

    Thank YOU Lolly! You are very sweet to say those nice things about me :) Yes, i think it has been about 3 years! Amazing, isn’t it? I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you. I know our paths will cross one day :)

    Happy Valentines day!

    The yarn you’ve chosen for that pullover looks so nice!! I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’ve always really liked that pattern. And your weaving is beautiful!!!

    Mmmm… tweedy stockinette. Yum! And the weaving looks wonderful!

    Congrats to the winners of you contest. 25,000 comments! – WOW!

    If your source on the Silky Tweed falls through, I could check to see if we have any in that colourway at work (I know we carry a decent spread of the colours).

    Happy Valentine’s Day! That first weaving picture is striking. Great photo. I have no idea how all of that works, but you’re starting to make me want to learn!

    I think that rust colour will look great with your complexion and hair. Can’t wait to see it done, I’ve always loved that pattern!

    Oh wow, the Silky Tweed looks so delicious! I’m a tweed addict, so seeing this is really challenging for my no-more-yarn-during-PS-rule. The weaving looks great. Pink and white always makes me go “Aaawww”. And the fabric is so even! You’re becoming a pro in no time! :)

    I think that the projects in Knitting Nature look wonderful constructed and I’m sure that you will crank out a great looking finished object in no time. I’m just afraid to purchase the book, because I can never seem to get row-gauge on anything I knit and I am supposing that that would be terribly important with Norah’s designs. Can you comment on that?

    happy valentine’s lolly!

    I can’t wait to see how these two projects progress. the color on the sweater is gorgeous. I wonder if you could sneak in some of the silky wool into the project if you run out.

    Congratulations on your publication below. What a grand accomplishment. I’m anxious to see the sweater completed.

    congrats! that is a lot of comments!!!! love the pullover so far. I have some silky wool that I think will turn into one also….can’t wait to see you next weekend! We have to figure out a day/time!

    You are making me want to buy a Loom… I just found some on Craigslist. Stop posting such beautiful weaving projects :-)
    I keep repeating that I have NO ROOM for a loom in my house. But damn Lolly your project are gorgeous!

  13. Lin

    Happy valentines day to you too! The weaving looks good, not that I know anything about warp/weft/whatever it is!

    I love Knitting Nature. I really want to make the Hexagon Coat, but I need to find a good substitute for Lite Lopi (I’m very scratch sensitive/wimpy). The yarn you chose for the Phyllo is one of my favorites too. I didn’t realize it was discontinued! Luckily I have some in my stash…

    The weaving looks great too!

  15. turtle

    Wow beautiful! Weaving looks so interesting but i do not know if i would ever have the patience to thread the loom just to get started! Love knitting but my patience has it’s limits :) very nice pics.

  16. Eve

    Wow, I’d never seen a picture of heddles before. That’s neat, I’d never realized how weaving works but it makes sense now!

  17. Mintyfresh

    I never win these random comment contests, ever. So I love the weaving! Looks dense but it must be lusciously soft.

    I made that pullover last year, and worried about the exact same problem, running out of yarn (I was using Calmer). I ended up skimping on the sleeve length, thinking that it would be OK, but once the actual sweater was finished, the sleeves tended to ride up alot (because of the yoke construction). Ultimately I did have a bit of Calmer left over after the project, so recently I cut the cast on edge of the sleeves and knit them longer.

    All this is to say that if I were to do this over, I would do a provisional cast on with the sleeves, and that way, I could easily lengthen them if I had the yarn left over. I also toyed with the idea of knitting extra sleeve length in a complementary color (like dark brown to the peacock blue I was using). I think you could also do a cute 3/4 sleeve. Whatever you decide, I’m sure it will look beautiful! It’s the cutest, most comfy sweater I’ve made for myself.

    Gorgeous photos! I also love the feel of silky tweed–I didn’t know it was being discontinued though, how unfortuante!

    I love the photos of your weaving–it’s not only festive, but really interested to see the process! Happy belated v-day, and happy knitting :)

    The weaving looks great! If you’re still playing a bit, you could get the warp to pop a bit more by re-denting the reed a little tighter (which would make it thinner, something you may not want…). The weft would spread out a bit, too and not be so dense. Unlike knitting there is an additional variable, whcih makes waving very interesting, eh?

  21. Beatriz

    Your silky tweed project looks so nice in that rusty color. I made a sweater with EL Silky Tweed and really enjoyed working with it. There were apparently a few discontinued colors last year.

  22. Mysterious Yarns

    That photo of the warp going through the heddles is just amazing.

    And congratulations on the fascinating article in Interweave.

  23. Jenna

    The color variation in that Silky Tweed looks lovely! If you have to get creative with the sleeves, I think that sweater would look really cute with an elbow or 3/4 length sleeve. That would work especially well with that light yarn for a springtime sweater.

    Glad to see that you’re moving up in skills with your weaving. I think the asymmetry is going to look really pretty. It will also be interesting to see what kind of fabric the alpaca produces in weaving vs. knitting. That must make for great stashbusting!

    While I had to give lots of attention to my love on V-day, I was also thinking about how lucky I am to have many loving and wonderful people in my life. I’m so glad that you’re one of them. Hugs and love to you this day after V-day!! xoxo

  24. Alice

    Hope you had a great V-day yesterday! Everything is looking lovely as always. I love the PS colored weaving :)

  25. Brenda

    The silky tweed is so pretty! It will look great in Phyllo. Pretty colors and great photos of the weaving.

  26. Nadia

    Happy belated Valentine’s Day to you, too! Reading your blog is always a bright spot in my day. And I LOVE the color you picked for your sweater – I can’t wait to see it when it’s finished!

  27. Sarah

    Excited to see the Phyllo Yoke sweater grow and your weaving looks great from here

  28. Kristin

    The jumper is a gorgeous colour, fiery and autumny.
    The weaving is pretty – I think a pink stripe next to the white one would be great.

  29. Josiane

    I love, love, love the colorway you are using for Phyllo!

  30. tiennie

    The phyllo yoke is gorgeous! Congrats to the winners!
