Currently in my knitting bag...

I'm just finishing up Helena, a super sweet baby cardigan, using Ultra Pima Quatro from Cascade Yarns in this fun and happy colorway called Candy Stripe.  I've really enjoyed this pattern, and just discovered the adult version, Hermia!  I'll be teaching this class, Helena, at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop on Wednesdays in August.  Check out the Summer Class Schedule and call the shop to sign up!  (503) 283-2004

Citron has been neglected lately since I've been trying to finish up Helena, but the yarn is calling to me.  Such a soft merino wool.  I'm using Rialto Lace from Debbie Bliss in an amazing light turquoise color.  Love it!  This isn't for a class or knit-a-long...just for fun!

Here's my Petal Lace Cardigan...our current knit-a-long at The Naked Sheep.  Love, love, love this yarn!  Venezia Sport from Cascade Yarns; a lovely blend of merino wool and silk.  So soft and spongy, and the colors are great!  Knit-A-Long is still happening on Saturday afternoons from 1-4pm.  Join us!

And here is my third Wingspan, again in Taiyo Sock Yarn.  I love this pattern and yarn; but I think I'm going to repurpose the yarn and cast on for the Entrelac Reticule with Bobble Trim.  You'll find the pattern in the 2012 issue of the Jane Austen magazine.  Stop by the shop and check it out!  This could very well be our next knit-a-long.

Well, that's all for this knitting bag!
