It has been a disjointed week. I feel like I have been very busy, yet have little to show for it. It has been all bad, I've had lots of time knitting with friends.
On Sunday I spent a few lovely hours at Janine's knit-in.
Rachael with Joaquin. Aren't they cute? The color was wonky so I used Rachael's trick and made the picture sepia.
Brooke & Joaquin
Pardon the blurry-cam technology. I thought the picture was cute enough to overlook the blur.
On Tuesday, I went to knit night at Llama Llama Knit in Novato. Love that store! There is a wonderful crowd there and I feel so at home.
All this visiting has helped to get some knitting done. I have neglected to show you the shawl I'm making with the Meyer Lemon Chocolate Alpaca-Tussah Silk.
There are three patterns before a wide edging. I have completed the first two patterns. So far I am quite happy. It is about 30% done with the knitting. Soon, I'll have to spin the second have of the roving.
I found that my Sweater Swine is perfect as a T-pin cushion. So darling!
Aeolian is coming along too.
I'm done with the set-up edging and just started on the final edging. It is hard to put down, easy to follow, and well written. The beads aren't going to happen. Maybe on the next one. I am very intrigued by the Alternate Narrow Edging (ravelry link).
Off to get some work done! Must prepare for Fiber Club dyeing plus dye some lace yarn and camel fiber and BFL and . . . . I know, tough life!
