I’m now two full skeins in with two more to go, though I’m not quite sure how much of that fourth skein I’ll use. In total, I’ve got 850 yards of knitting with SweetGeorgia Yarns’ ToughLove Sock yarn under my belt and I’m still smitten. I’m also still hoping to have this project finished by May.
As you can see, I’m just about finished the body of the sweater. Soon, I’ll pick up stitches for the arms to knit their 3/4 length sleeves. Audrey is designed to be a fitted sweater and, with a few try-ons, it looks good!
If you’re digging that yarn bowl I’m using, you will hopefully be excited to learn that it’s now available in pink! Wouldn’t it make a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift???
Our handmade yarn bowls are made especially for Home Made by Amanda Leipert of The Madd Potters’ Studio in Cape May. Amanda uses stoneware for these yarn bowls so they’re not quite as delicate as a typical ceramic piece. Not that you should be throwing it around or anything. . .
And, if you prefer to paint your own yarn bowl, we’re teaming up with Glazed Over Studios of Ocean City to do exactly that — Paint Your Own Yarn Bowl! That workshop is scheduled for Friday, July 12 from 1 – 3PM and you can read more about this workshop and all our classes here. This workshop sold out quickly last time so be sure to register in advance with payment to secure your spot!
You can grab your Audrey sweater pattern, ToughLove Sock yarn, and all your other knitting notions, accessories, and encouragement needed right here at Home Made. So, stop in or give us a ring at 609.536.2940!
