Hat is done! Cute & warm. 🙂
Watching the Olympics helps get knitting done. 🙂
I finished my Tailored Scallops Jacket from Lace Style. 🙂
About halfway through the Laced-Edged Corset from the same book, and started on the Lily of the Valley Shawl from there, too.
Annie Modesitt announced on her blog that she is preparing the Sideways Spencer for sale on her website! 🙂 I know people have been looking for this pattern. Patience pays off! 🙂 (and it’s certainly more fun to pay a reasonable 1 digit fee than the $30+ craziness for the original magazine I’ve seen on ebay!
It’s kind of sad that Interweave has made yet another whack move with the Reader’s Choice patterns. I thought the top 10 would be put in a new book for sale! They keep renegging on what they’re going to do. 😦 4 months of limited access? Boo!
Also frustrating to learn that they hadn’t even consulted the designers when they started, so what is voted for might not be accessible anyway.
More knittery Xmas gifts!
A Snapware storage container (methinks it’s the small square one…), which now holds yarn from my ball winder because it’s a great size and had adjustable compartamentalizing boards. 🙂
I’ve gotten a few things done: Southwest Trading Company’s free Tidal Wave Socks, some cable swatches. The top sock is in coloway 1, and the big sock is colorway 3.
I’m now working on a baby/toddler Sacque sweater from a book, I assume. It’s full of errors/bad pattern writing. 😦 Don’t be lazy about checking instructions and editing, people!
…it’s what you’ve been knitting.
Sometimes, I wonder why people who’ve been knitting for much longer than I (and sometimes almost as long as I’ve been alive) are still missing things from their knitting repertoire. Why do some people wait months or even over a year to move from learning the knit stitch to the purl? I don’t get it.
My first sample knit is on its way. It might arrive today or tomorrow. i wonder what kind of feedback I’ll get. I’ve never had my knitting analyzed by an experienced knitter before (she’s completed some of the Master Knitting level courses from the Knitting Guild Association).
I will likely finish my second sample today or tomorrow, depending on how my homework goes.
