Are you eagerly awaiting clue 1 for the Woodburne Cardigan KAL?Â Well check your inbox it’s just been sent out!Â If you’ve been thinking about joining but couldn’t decide just jump in and keep us company :-)Â To chat with other knitters working on Woodburne at the same time come visit us on the ravelry board here.
For anyone following my blog you might know that I seem to be having a hard time getting my design life flowing smoothly.Â It felt like I just kept starting projects and they wouldn’t quite click in place.Â The idea would be there, but the knitting didn’t quite have that magic.Â Plus every time I sat down to write a pattern I just wasn’t able to focus.Â Even small jobs were taking twice as long as they should.Â I have no idea what changed but last week it felt like something clicked back in place for me again.Â Everything I touched worked :-)Â I don’t have a clue how long this will last but I like it!
What might have helped is that I decided on a plan for the next 9 months.Â I’ve ordered and gathered yarn (well some is still on it’s way) for both a small spring/summer collection and a bigger Autumn booklet.Â All of the colors, yarns and ideas just seem to be falling into place and the knitting has got that something special back.Â I love it when something works better on the needles than in your head!
While I can’t show you all the knitting just yet I’ll give you a little yarnie preview ……
So how well do you know your yarn?Â Recognize any in the photo?

The green is berroco.. vintage? Donegal tweed, the greyish skein across the back looks like hedgehog fibers?
There is vintage in there but it’s a grey at the back! The mossy green at the front is Blue Moon Fiber ‘Worthy’ (yummy cashmere), and the greyish skein at the top is a new Irish dyer, coolree.com!
Is the beautiful green tweed Studio Donegal
The dark green one, yes :-)
Just got your book from a library a few towns over…rural Ohio USA. Was thrilled to read about the Irish mills and dyers as I am planning my first trip to Ireland. And now I see that you live in (are from?) Cork, the homeland of my ancestors. It’s all fabulous!
