Hello, dear friends!
I am so happy to say I’ve been chugging along, finishing projects, while starting and finishing a few others. What a great feeling of accomplishment. Oh yes…I am happy of myself.
Here’s just a little of what I’ve been working on finishing recently…
The Punkinhead Thief (The Orchid Thief) Shawl. Finally. Finished. After all the drama, I honestly don’t know if I’d do another. Even so I love it; I can’t wait for it to get chilly here. The HandMaiden Swiss Cashmere and Silk is to.die.for. OMG.
Bug’s Apocalyptic Drop-stitch Sweater…I have to say I’m pretty proud of this one.
Its genesis was a super cool sweater on Etsy that Bug found and fell in love with last sumer, and that I was just not going pay over $150 to buy. Come on. Looking at it I could see it was super simple. I just did some math and figured it out. Then I shopped from the old stash-ola. TaDa!
My 2nd Cladonia Shawl for the Through The Loops Summer Shawl KAL (Knit-a-long).
Love this pattern. LOVE IT. It’s fairly mindless, and ends up with some totally kick dupa lace. Start to finish: 5 days of working (caveat: the knitted picot bind-off took a whole day to do, but was totally worth it; yes, I know some do crocheted picot bind offs, but I really like the big loops you get from the knitted version.
A super secret design entry…here’s a peek at the work in progress, but I’ll have to fill you in on the details a little later when it’s finally finished…I’m still playing around with a few details.
There’s a 2nd design entry on the needles, but I don’t know if I’ll get it finished in time. More on both of those projects later.
Oh yes, and lookie here:
I won some YARN! Yep, I won some yarn from one of my favorite online yarn shops, Eat.Sleep.Knit in Smyrna, GA.
Hey, didya know that if you move the “a” in “Smyrna,” you get “Sm-yarn” LOL 😉
Well, I’d better keep moving. I feel like I’m on a roll here, for a change.
