Saturday Sky in the Odessa Forest

It's blue with baby persimmon leaves.

The forest? Well that is wrapped around the bunny and has an added bonus hat.

Project: Forbes Forest from Scarf Style

Yarn: RY Cashsoft DK
Needles: Addi Turbos in US6

Notes: Fun knit! I adore this yarn and had a great time learning to make bobbles and popcorns without turning my work. Since every project ends up with at least one oddity, this one had a doozie. They yarn came from three different sources and was in three different dyelots. I used the trick of switching balls of yarn for ever pair of rows. There is a noticable striping, but it almost looks planned.

Project: Odessa from Grumperina

Yarn: RY Cashsoft DK
Beads: Clear size 6 seed beads
Needles: Inox circular and Susan Bates dpns in US6 and Britney dpns in US4

Notes: This is my first knit beading project! It was super easy and looks great!

Hey! Where did you go? I just came looking for you, because I hadn't heard from you in a long time. Apparently my Bloglines isn't working. Argh! In any case, your Forest and Odessa are stunning. No surprise.
