There is stuff

I do have stuff to post about but for tonight you just get a simple update.

Mom got her vest & wore it the day it came in the mail. I have heard from one of my sisters’ that she really does like it & it’s perfect (sometimes you can’t trust that the recipient isn’t just saying it’s perfect to make you feel good, I really want it to be perfect).

I started a Brioche Scarf project that I will be teaching a workshop in October at Knit & Pearl. It’s a fun, easy pattern so I am hoping to get it done in the next few days to get it to the shop for display.

I pulled out 2 blankets, the Ruched silk blanket that has been on needles for over 3 years. And the Crack Feather & Fan blanket that I cast on last December ’06. Crack being Malabrigo that I scored on Ebay (13 hanks for $31, don’t hate me), Feather & Fan being the shawl pattern from A Gathering of Lace. I made the shawl & decided it would make a fantastic blanket. It will make a fantastic blanket. It will just take a while to knit, that’s all. Plus the colors don’t match anything in my house but I don’t care, it’s Crack.

I did get about 40 rows done on the body of the Trapeze Jacket after finishing the vest then pulling out the blankets stopped me short. That sweater ain’t happenin’ fast but it is goin’ to happen!

So tomorrow after my 6-in-1 card reader gets here I will post pics of all the aforementioned projects.

Until then, Ciao!

  1. I can’t wait to see the brioche scarf. It sounds pretty. I can’t believe you’ve got two blankets going. I’ve had one behind my chair in the living room for months now. It’s pretty, but just soooo boring to knit. All garter stitch. And with my new no-boring-knits policy, it may be leaving soon. But with that said, Mason-Dixon just made a beautiful tweedy blanket that I’m dying for. What’s good there is you can make one square at a time, so that might work, or Lizard Ridge is appealing to me, also. Great forethought over much red wine will go in to this decision!


  2. Sounds like you’ve got plenty going as usual. I can’t wait to see the pictures. And I just may have to start haunting e-bay for yarns. I’ve got one square of an afghan done (and really there’s no reason that i haven’t done more, just other stuff going along instead). And it sounds like your blankets will be marvelous.
