Happy birthday to my sister and my blog

My sister decided to have a girls weekend in Maine for her birthday. We ate, we drank, we laughed til we cried....and....we knit. In honor of my sister and the one-year birthday of the KnitSanity blog, I spread the knitting love. Gayle just needed a cast-on refresher. Anna is a knitting newbie. As you can see, she's still smiling. (Not pictured: My sister and I in our jammies.)

While in Maine, I had to visit Pine Tree Yarns in Damariscotta. Elaine Eskesen always has the most amazing colors and natural yarns. I wandered in just in time for the first shipment of her new book, Silk Knits. I was honored to get the first signed copy. I'm looking forward to knitting this lace shell in Garnstudio's Silke Tweed. It's 52% silke, 47% lammeull.

What is Lammeull?

I have to finish this first (among other UFOs). Voila...the back of the Tank from Classic Knits. This is knit in Classic Elite Cashmere. Unbelieveably soft!

Happy Birthday, Wendy's sister!

And Happy Birthday to your blog too.

I've never knit with the Classic Elite Cashmere but I've been dying to!

What a great time it seems you had in Maine! Happy birthday to your sis, and happy blogiversary to you!
Hm... I'd say "Lammeull" might mean "Lambswool" - what a yummy looking yarn - and pattern! - this is!

How fun! I love Maine and its wacky residents...I was thinking about getting the Erica Knight book and after having read your blog now I really want to!

I also think it means Lamb's Wool. I knit a sample sweater for the company from this yarn. The US distributor lives nearby.
