We’re home! And I have a new BFF!
Ms In Charge and I have 3 infected ears. Two of them are mine. And I’m not moving too far away from that kleenex box. I’m just miserable enough that I don’t feel like doing anything, but not too miserable to knit. Actually, I knit until 5:00 this morning because it hurt to lay my head on the pillow. My teeth even hurt. So I started this!
When Anne Hanson sees this, she’s just going to cringe! I take a classy, beautiful pattern and use bright green yarn. It’s almost a crime! Here’s her beautiful shawl. What can I say? I’m a sucker for bright greens. This is Silkie Socks that Rock in The New Color Of Love. My kleenex box and I cast on 303 stitches and knit the first few rows before I kinda fell asleep sitting up.
I was hoping to block The Purple Blob today. Since that’s an Anne Hanson pattern, I was hoping she’d see the beauty of my Maplewing and forgive me for the lime green mess above! However, I have a problem. There’s something in my favorite blocking spot.
I may need to do some negotiating with Frankie for my spot!
If you looked closely at my kleenex photo, you may have noticed some more knitting! Look what I finished last night!
The Mitered Vee Capelet is finished. I’m pretty sure my kleenex box and I can get those ends woven in today. I’m just going to steam block this one, and it’s ready to go. I think I’m going to love it!
And, speaking of miters. Here’s the yarn for my next mitered project.
The yarn is Socks that Rock mediumweight in Meet Brown, Joe and Spinel. I’ll give you more info soon! I need to do some swatching first!
So, did all of that distract you enough to not notice that I still don’t have anything finished to show you? Good! I thought it would work!
I’m off to find my darning needle and kleenex box, so I can get all those ends woven in. Then I’ll have something for show and tell!!!
