March Madness, Day 1

This month, I'm joining several other knit bloggers, including one of my favorites, Canary Knits, in an attempt to post everyday. I'll do some regular posting on big fiber-y events and finished knitted objects, but on slower days, I'll at least post what I've knitted on that day. So, today I'm introducing a project I just started on tonight: the Olive Blouse! I found this pattern on Ravelry a few weeks ago, and I've been thinking about it ever since. Last year, my grandmother gave me a lot of her stash, and there was some Cascade Lana D'Oro that I thought would be perfect for the main color.

Check out my Olive Project Page on Ravelry, for the accent yarn specifications and pattern information. I know it doesn't look like much knitting, but it takes a long time to cast on 220 stitches!

And finally, today was a big day for me blog-wise, with links on two of my favorite blogs. Thanks, Susan and Canary Sanctuary!!!


  1. Glad to have found your blog via CanarySanctuary! I have spent some time of almost every summer of my life in Wisconsin (Lake Mills for my childhood and Door County since the late 80s).

  2. Ooo, that blouse has been on my faves list forEVER! I love it. I'm looking forward to seeing your posts this month :)

  3. @Kathleen, Wisconsin is my favorite place to be! We just went up to Door County last September!

    @CanarySanctuary, I hope it turns out as well as the pictures on Ravelry! I'm using a little bit thicker yarn than the pattern calls for.
