Been knitting and watching movies during the recovery days between Christmas and New Years. Last night I knitted to The Runaway Bride (on TV) and then to Thelma and Louise (a gift DVD from my son). I love the way those two women kick ass.
I'm not making any New Year's resolutions, but I am in the mood to finish off a bunch of unfinished business. I have a line-up of projects that I want to get off the needles so that I can get on to other things. I'm back working on this side-to-side cardi that I started in the fall. It's from the Debbie Bliss pattern book for Alpaca/Silk, and I'm knitting it in Gedifra English Tweed.
What's Left to do: I have to get rid of some tails (wish I'd known about spit-splicing back then, sigh..), and sew up this arm/side seam.
I have to sew the two ends of neck ribbing together down the middle neck seam, and then attach those two bits along the back edge. Knitting-wise, I'm all set to head down the second sleeve to the cuff (then more sewing) then done!
I'm also socking away on this Fleece Artist merino sock. It's so pretty and fun. I'm done the instep and working on the foot now. I pick this up for a change between the cardi, or take it along in the car or wherever. We're going out to a fondue party tonight, so I'll bring it along for a good time.
Remember Barbie and all her friends? Well -- all sold to Anonymous the same evening I posted it! That was quick, and Hayley was thrilled (and so was I). I figured we would unload it locally, but now it's winging its way south to be enjoyed by other girlies. Thanks Anonymous! (you know who you are)
If you haven't had a chance to check out The Scottish Lamb's big yarn sale (see side bar), you'd better hurry up, cuz it's going fast. I got some yesterday. Yippee!!
Oh...(and also in the enabling department). Little Knits is having another smokin' good sale. I picked up whole bags of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk for 35. dollars a bag!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!
