  kicking ass. taking names.
i have to say, i'm even impressing myself with how well i'm sticking to my oath of cleaning out my WIP backlog. i have not one, but two finished objects to present to you... although i am waiting until the weekend to do them up right with photos. one of them is so beautiful, anything short of a proper photo-shoot would be offensive.

of course, with only two small projects standing between me and the wide open knitting terrain, i'm gearing up for the next big thing. or... things. theres clearly more than one. i'm a knitter.

the only two WIP's lingering in the basket are the Log Cabin Socks and Forbes Forest (which probably would be complete by now if i hadn't left it in philly last weekend! ... but i'll be reunited with it this weekend.. so things will be fine.)

just over the horizon :: two badass sweater project from our friends at rowan:


'Jarrett' from "Vintage Style." The yarn is already purchased (got a smokin deal on ebay!) and somewhere over the atlantic ocean. 10 skeins of rowanspun dk in 'rush' coming from london. mouth is watering. notice awesome seed stitch elbow and shoulder pads. not to mention awesome collar. and you know i love tweed. obviously.


'Raspy' from "Denim People." taking the lead of other crazy awesome knitters with this sweater, i'll be using elann's denim (den-m-knit) for the obvious reasons - it does all the same things as rowan denim for a fraction of the price. denim sweater... come on. now thats gonna be sweet.

and after blocking another lace piece this week (you'll get to see Ene soon), i'm thinking i won't be able to go too long without another lace project on the needles. its magic i tell you!

now... just gotta power through those languishing basket-bottomers.

oh! do you like the new look of The Tweed? i wanted something different, and despite the debilitating limitations of blogger, i think this is a nice change.

knit for your lives!

Have you read Bonne Marie's post on her denim jacket Jess made from Aunt Lydia's Denim? It's in the April archive. Another choice of much cheaper yarn for the denim patterns ... which I really love.
I love lace knitting too ... and why don't you join the Amazing Lace (http://amazinglace.licketyknit.com/)? I think that would be a lot of fun.

Love the new look of the blog, and look forward to all these upcoming sweaters! By the way, your blog doesn't look quite right in Firefox (looks fine in IE) - browser compatibility: it's a bitch.

wait, what? you were in philly last weekend?! and you're coming down again this weekend? any chance youll be around the rittenhouse area on saturday? maybe up for some kip?

you are taking names left and right! I can't wait to see Jarrett all knit up. Rowanspun is delish.

grumpy is right, with firefox your stat bars are way over to the left, on top of your post.

forgot to say that I love the new colors, simplified top and larger sidebar


im done


I love the new projects and the new look, but I'm in the firefox camp.

Yes, the new look is great. (Also a FF user, and IE abuser. lol)
And the Komi mittens? If you are ever wanting to swap ANYTHING for them, let me know. (Except for Lulu Kitty, of course.) I MUST HAVE THOSE MITTENS!

Love the new look and the upcoming projects... 'Jarrett' is one of my favs in Vintage Knits.

I like the new look! Jarrett is going to look fab, so hurry up and finish those WIPs! ;)

i can't wait to see your updated finished projects this weekend. knowing you - they will be gorgeous.

jarrett will be gorgeous...and you are going to love that rowanspun yarn. i actually have a small quantity in my stash.

raspy on the other hand has been on my to-do list since forever! although i suspect you are going to get yours finished first.

Yes, I like the new look here.
I LOVE your mittens, they are so great. I need to quit being chicken of the fairisle!

Looks like you have some fabulous projects in store. Can't wait to see them all done up.
Speaking of Vintage Style, I need to finish my Demi. ;)

I do like the new look of brooklyntweed..looks great!

I think your upcoming projects are great! This is the second blog I have read tonight about the denim yarn. I really gotta check it out!

Can't wait to see the FO pictures.

Love the new look. It's so much easier for me and my bad eyes to read.
