Our knitting study group chooses a study topic and a study leader for each calender year. For 2014 Terry Martin is leading a study in lace knitting. Our first project, which will be to knit a scarf that Janice Weinstein designed for us, included painting the fingering weight wool that we will use to knit the scarves. You can see some of the dyed skeins above. It is going to be interesting to see how different painting choices affect the look of the finished scarf. If you would like to knit along with us, you can download Janice's free pattern from Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vine-stitch-lace-scarf.

As soon as Pantone announces a new color of the year (it's Radiant Orchid this year) or sends out a new color report, their colors start showing up in stores and magazines. So if you make garments or accessories to sell or are thinking about making something fashionable for yourself this year, here is Pantone's Fall 2014 color report, http://www.pantone.com/pages/fcr/?season=fall&year=2014&pid=3.

Hello Fiber Friends!
As I sit here watching the snow come down, my hands are itching to knit! What wonderful knitting weather we have had lately! Our meeting last month was energizing and inspiring...no excuses for feet not to be nice and warm now! This month I expect the colors and fabrics of Peru to inspire us! I can't wait to hear of Susie's many and varied experiences! We will also have a door prize provided by Susie this month!
Personally, I have been trying to finish up some projects...most notably my knitted jacket...I have to admit I am a process knitter and love to plan, look at yarn and plot...then once I see it take form I tend to get distracted and try something else! So, I periodically have to play Let's Make a Deal with myself....this year it's finish 3 and I can start something new.......
Stay Warm and Happy Knitting!
