I do believe they do! When I started this project with bright green yarn, I was questioning it. Actually, the whole time I was knitting, I was wondering about my choice!
I like it! I was looking for something to brighten up my uniform jean jacket. I want something that makes me look put together five minutes after I’m out of my pajamas! Add a little lipstick and some sunglasses and walk fast!
I thought my 5 kids pin was perfect with this. My mom bought it for me several years ago.
Pattern: Pine & Ivy by Anne Hanson of Knitspot.
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silkie Socks That Rock The New Color of Love colorway.
Needles: Addi size 2 & 3.
Mods: I did two knit rows at the beginning instead of three. I was concerned I would run out of yarn. I had very little left at the end.
I just have to show you one shot of it blocking. What can I say? I love blocking lace!
Guess what??? This shawl and my Maplewing (previous post) are going to meet the designer, Anne Hanson this week! I’m going to Socks That Rock sock camp. I have a very fun friend going with me. We leave early tomorrow morning and will be hanging out in Seattle for one night and then in Port Ludlow, Washington for the next 5 nights!
Two of my favorite lace designers, Anne Hanson and Sivia Harding are teaching. Oh, and the other two teachers are Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka The Yarn Harlot and Tina, the owner of Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Our classes revolve around knitting socks, but I’m sure I’ll have time to get some lace knitting in too!
In the next 15 hours I need to:
~Finish my homework for camp. More on that later. Much later!?!
~Figure out what I’m going to take for knitting!
~Clean up this house. (Thank goodness dinner is in the crockpot!!!)
~Go to a meeting at school.
~Sleep. I still haven’t gotten rid of my stupid cold!
~Make My Hero a list. He can rock the Mr. Mom thing, except he can’t cook. I bought a bunch of frozen meals yesterday, so he’s good to go!
I’d better get busy. I’ll blog if I have time!
