All Hail Garter Stitch

Once again, I fall in love with a beautiful garter stitch pattern.

Last year it was All the Shades of Truth, a wrap I loved knitting and love wearing (in my icy cold office).

This year it's Eden Prairie.

I enabled assisted my pal Keri with her Eden Prairie yarn selections at the Spring Knitter's Frolic and while I watched hers knit up so beautifully, I realized I have to make one too.

Conveniently, I was visiting the dying team extraordinaire at Indigodragonfly headquarters and put together a fantastic selection of colours.

I started last week and am ready to quit my job and work on this full time.  I love every colourful garter stitch moment of it.


Green: Where's the regenerate switch on this convertable?

Blue: Canoe up to the beer store

Purple: Sargasm (yes, one of the best colourway names ever)

Dark green/black: Is She All Green And Fuzzy And Mossy?


(Night shot, first photo is much more accurate for colour).

You only knit with one colour at a time and it's all garter stitch.  Swoon.



Top Secret! (the sweater)

Honeybee is done!  I finished it on the weekend and I love it.  All it needs are buttons.  The fit is perfect and the Tosh Merino Lite is so pretty.  Once again, Laura Chau writes a great pattern.

Here's the last update photo of the attached I-cord neckline with a filter (that's not the true colour--called Esoteric).   You can see better ones on my Ravelry project page.

Icord bind off. My favourite

I can't post modelled photos yet.  My sweater is on a secret mission.

Not a Top Secret! mission, but one that's not mine to share.  It was volunteered to further the cause of knitter world domination.

Honeybee will be back soon with photos...promise.
