I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it

I'm in love with the summer interweave knits! I like almost all of the patterns, but there are a few that I adore! I love the summertime tunic. I like how simple it is. I've been working so hard to advance my knitting skills that I really like the idea of an easy knit that I can enjoy, but it's still chic.
Next is my favorite pattern writer Norah Gaughan. I don't think I've ever seen a pattern of hers that I didn't like. I love the cut on the sweater, I love bell sleeves and of course seed stitch. I can't wait to knit it.
One of the more difficult patterns in the issue the syncopated caps are beautiful. Ooh, fair isle how I love you so.
And of course the motorcycle gloves are one of my favorites. I mean come on combining motorcycling and knitting, shear genius. I am totally going to knit these.
I'm also in love with O-wool. It's produced by Vermont Organic Fiber Co. Every yarn they make is organic, which I of course love. The pic below is of Balance an organic wool/ cotton blend. I see a balance fair isle sweater in my future.

Lastly, I heard that my favorite musical, Spring Awakening, was nominated for 11 Tony's! It's so good- run to Broadway and beg for tickets. It's definately a must- see musical.

Spring Awakening is the best musical! Especially if you are a lucky one and on stage sitting on the right side!!! Right Phyl? ahum. As for spring Interweave, where is Eunny?

The yarn is beautiful. Is it soft? Motorcycles and knitting, hmmm, I can totally see it.

Spring Awakening! Score composed by Duncan Sheik, one of my favorite 90's one hit wonders! I'm hoping to talk the boy into a trip home (he's from Jersey) so we can go see it.
