If startitis was a fatal disease, I’d be toast. I could just sit around and knit 10 rows of about a dozen different yarns right now! I’d just like to inform you that I’m sort of restraining myself.
First off, for your viewing pleasure, is the Oyster Bay shawl by Oceanwind knits.
Of course the lace still looks like a blob with holes, but it’s showing promise. The yarn is Geisha, from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. The colorway is Bella Coola. I think I’m going to love it. Unfortunately, I can’t work on it right now because my whole head is swimming in snot. I haven’t had a cold in three years, and I’m pretty sure I’m dying. Just kidding! I know I’m alive because the kids voices are echoing in my head!
Do you remember this?
I frogged it. The yarn and pattern are wonderful, but over Christmas The Genius found a polite way to tell me that all that ribbing wasn’t going to work with my body. She was right, and I knew it, but that cable….
So I started this…
It’s Amelia. It’s also from Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Socks That Rock Heavyweight. I’ve knit a ton in the last few days. That’s the only good thing about having a nasty cold. I knit through the misery.
There’s also some entrelac going on, but its future is uncertain. I haven’t made an executive decision.
I must go order Chinese Food and send My Hero to buy me drugs. Then I will knit more.
Oh, and this comment is from Zelda, one of my trusty readers. It cracked me up!
“Hope you enjoy my New Year’s present to you: Supreme Power to use Exclamation Points in Multiples! You are the only one that does it and still charms me every time.”
Knit on, people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
