Knitter’s Frolic 2015

As we’ve been settling in to our new house I haven’t been doing any sewing at all but have been knitting up a storm. A couple months ago Julie at the Needle Emporium text me to ask if I wanted to knit a new sweater to wear at her Knitter’s Frolic booth. (Check out the Knitter’s Frolic here.) Of course, yes right! Julie often has Lynn and I do something new for inspiration at the booth and she said that Lynn had picked a beauty little short sleeved number from the Spring 2015 Interweave Knits magazine. I’ve often picked the pattern so it’s fun that Lynn choose a nice surprise this time…

You can also check out the pattern and other’s knits on Ravelry, here. It’s knit in Madeline Tosh DK but I’ve knit a lot with this yarn and have been wanting to try out the newer Mrs. Crosby line. I chose a nice spring coral colour and got knitting right away. The lace arrow pattern is lovely and with the rest in stocking stitch it knits up super quick…

I just have a wee bit to do on the front and I’ll be ready to sew it together. I’m doing the 34 1/2″ size (2nd size) but I think I would have liked the 38″ finished size as well. I looks nice in the picture a bit looser fitting but mine will be more a tighter fitting Tee I think. It will need a good block out. I’m sure it will be fine, we’ll see. As always I measured the finished bust of a knit tee I already like to wear. I know it will be fine but it looks so curled at the edges that I unreasonably worry. I have enjoyed knitting with Mrs. Crosby, carpet bag. It’s very soft and the colour is coming up nicely. The Frolic is at the Japanese Cultural Centre in Toronto on April 25 and 26. The booths are only open Saturday the 25th though. Come by and see the final product, it’s always a good show with lots of booths.

Knitter’s Frolic

It was an early morning today! Up at 5 to meet at the Needle Emporium. I was helping with Julie’s booth at the Downtown Knit Collective’s Knitter’s Frolic at the Japanese Cultural Centre. If you haven’t been before it is well worth the trip. This year Julie featured the new Mrs. Crosby yarn. It comes in 5 weights and Julie has it first in the world! The names of the yarn are travel themed so Julie planned a baggage carousel idea with old fashioned trunks and cases. It was a lovely set up!…

The yarn itself is dreamy and I got to touch many samples today. Everyone loved this cute hat that was done it two colours of the fingering weight. Find it on Ravelry, called Anemone or click here.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay the whole day because we had already planned to take Lady Fia to see a Dora play at the Randolph Theatre in Toronto. It was well worth it and she loved it! See the before and after pics in the car lol!! She’s way too precious and beautiful…
