because I have an entire weekend to pack for, a shower to take, and a few chores to get done before I leave for Slater Mill. 

But how often does a girl get a sweater design published in Amirisu?

Blue Sky is a simple summer tee.  It's exactly the kind of thing that I reach for when the weather gets warm - because it's light and airy and easy to wear.  Details along the raglan and side shaping are echoed at back, and short rows allow for a subtle dip in the hem.   It's lovely, soothing knitting, that stockinette.  And it's worked in Berroco's Maya yarn - a chainette yarn in a pima cotton and alpaca mix that's next to skin soft, with a touch of sheen and a flattering drape. 

There are 6 other beautiful designs in the magazine, plus articles and an interview with Amy Hendrix of Madeline Tosh - - you can see the whole thing HERE.

I'm off for a few days now - teaching and talking and trunk showing down in Rhode Island with Amy Christoffers, Bristol Ivy, Ellen Mason and Gudrun Johnston.   As soon as I do that packing.
