Show and Tell

Y'all might remember that before I headed to London, I was playing with this yarn.
I even took it with me on the flight (crochet hooks are not a problem with security)

Now look at my fun sweater!

No one can ever say I have idle hands.

I'm already busy with the next project...

Sandi that is gorgeous! I really like the lacy look. Very pretty. It's nice to know they still allow crochet hooks on flights although with our tightened airport security in Canada. I was gifted with some lovely yarn for Christmas so am looking for pattern but I found your blog through another cooking blog. I'll stop back again.

How pretty - all I can make are afghans and coasters, or other flat things! I'm picturing you crocheting on the plane, kind of like Miss Marple with her knitting (except that you're much younger and there wasn't a murder close by . . .). Stay warm in your new sweater!

Very, very pretty!!!! I love it!!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Miss Marple~~ that is funny. I don't think I'm as attentive as Miss Marple... I stay in my little old hook-one-loop-two world.

Cora said...

I love it....gorgeous!
My daughter knits so she knew she could not take her knitting needles on her flight to Miami yesterday so she learned to knit on her fingers. She is making a pink garland for one of her Christmas trees next year. Too Cute!!

Kat said...

Wow! I'm quite impressed. FYI...I want one just like that.

Hugs from Beachkat!

Sandi, You definitely do not have idle hands, the sweater is gorgeous
and I love the color. Strange that crochet or knitting needles are not a threat. I have never knitted a sweater, not that talented, but hope to start another Swedish weave afghan soon.

I love, Love, LOVE your sweater. I just got back into the swing of knitting and crocheting so if you don't mind my asking, would you share the pattern? Your sweater is very cool and I love the color.
Blessings Be Yours

Sandi-
That is amazing. I usually feel like I've accomplished something by reading a book on the plane, now I feel lazy!

Sandi, I love this sweater! This post was before I had discovered your blog and I was delighted to find it in the little "you might also enjoy" snippets! LOVELY!! And, the cauliflower with PR sounded delish!
