Jackets in Summer and a Contest
Even though the temperatures have been in the high 90s, I am still finding myself attracted to jackets! I fell in love with this pattern when I stopped by my LYS, Meadow Farm Yarn Studio, the other day. I also ordered Jean Frost's Jackets, which I am anxiously awaiting. This would make a great work jacket for the fall, so I better start hunting around for the appropriate yarn! I really like the simple lines of most of Oat Couture's patterns, and this pattern has already been adjusted for three different yarn weights, DK, worsted, and Aran weight. How thoughtful of them!
I also decided that a small contest would liven up my summer... the first person sending me an email to email@example.com, with their name and address, and requesting that I mail the latest issue of Knit n' Style to them will be the winner. I was happy enough to have a free preview, but decided that this mag isn't a very good match for my personal style. Didn't find a single thing in there to displace any of the items on my lengthy to-do list, which says something, doesn't it? But that doesn't mean someone else won't fall in love... that's part of the beauty of knitting, it can be so many things to so many people!
The bad news is that I have not found a solution to my camera's problem... if you have any advice, please give it! Nothing appears on my preview screen, and even though the camera thinks it is recording a photo, nothing appears to be in the file when opened on the computer.... sigh, does this mean I will have to give up yarn shopping and buy a new one?!
