Leap Day grace

Well it's a good thing it's a leap day, cause otherwise I'd have missed posting in February (I don't count the last post, since it was representing January).  But here I am, barely having remembered that tomorrow starts a new month.  Whew!


So here is my progress on my Marie Wallin Fair Isle Club 5 blanket.  This is up through part 4.  I dearly love how it's looking, and how beautiful and colorful it is.  And yay for knitting color work flat, and for what an eye Marie Wallin has -- what a talent!  I can't imagine being able to put colors together like she does.  Sadly, the picture doesn't convey the colors well.

Having just popped on here quickly to post my progress (each part is released at a certain time, thus my being held to a schedule), I will quickly pop off again.  Happy Leap Day to everyone!

Just when I think you can't surprise me any more with your beautiful knitting, up comes this stunner! Wow! This is I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E, Margaret. How much more is left to do on it? Hugs to Miss Mia :)

Blogger doesn't allow the old way to click a photo and then we can enlarge to see details!! Damn. This deserves a close up! I can't believe how complicated and stunning this is. Just amazing. So Mia did her own into the box leap!

You amaze me with your work my friend!

What beautiful work!

Sandy said...

Beyond beautiful. I am so impressed with your skill. The attention it takes to work something that complicated, keeping count etc, definitely not my knitting in front of the tv sipping wine.

somehow I missed commenting on your Marie blanket - it is truly amazing Margaret !
Did you catch her live feed on Instagram? I don't have Instagram and she put out in an email that is the only way you can re-watch it. RATS ! It's going to be cool here this weekend YAY ! I might take a perusal thru my Marie magazines and see if I can get inspired to start another fair isle project. I am planning to be binding off my Rowan Arne and Carlos fair isle cowl. Happy Easter - mel
