Progress & Weekend List

I am making progress on the Silk Garden Sweater. My first large project. The sweater that I swore I would never do! Anything I make with Noro yarn makes me happy! This yarn is Noro Silk Garden #255. These strips are pretty straight forward and there is minimal shaping to do.I love the effect of the three needle bind of that you can see in the photo below. I am using a wonderful green yarn from Dream In Color yarn (100 series color called"Spring Tickle") for the binding.

My weekend projects include:
working on our aunt's quilt
getting my grab bag ready to ship for the grab bag challenge
doing my photo editing challenge for the week
trying the Illustration Friday topic for the week: "theory"
working on the February Take It Further Challenge. The idea is in my head . I am now just
trying to figure out how to make it work !

Hope everyone has a great weekend. We even seem to be getting some sunshine to enjoy!

At long LONG latw I'm going to do the tagged thing... only I'm going back through history to find it on your blog and has seen this sweater twice.... I was thinking last night (were you sending vibes?) of making a ruana out of Noro, maybe Kureyon instead of the silk, and was mulling over stripes...I think the Noro looks most awesome in thinner stripes like this so the color flows (instead of turning to muddy mush...think how awful it would be if I had a single row that iw 48 inches across)

Anyway, where (as in what book) can I find instructions for the three-needle bind?????? I could make the ruana with the narrower stripes, then bind together with an accenting stripe like this... it owuld be POIFECT! Hugs, me (sarah)
