Knitting Updates

I've made some good progress on my crayzee scarf--which let's you in on my mood lately. Sigh. Oh well, life is brightening and I am perking up. I am really LOVING this yarn, Claudia Hand Painted Lace in's so yummy.

Crayzee Scarf Back

The pattern on the reverse side (front? maybe--it'll depend on my mood when I start wearing it--some day) has been giving me trouble...mainly me forgeting to SSK or KTOG when I am supposed and me trying to ladder back.

Crayzee Scarf Front

On vacation when I went to On the Lamb (I just love that shop and it's owner--Joe is awesome), he pointed out that Claudia's Hand Painted yarns is just up the road 30 minutes away. I am sure the entire knitting world heard my jaw thunk to the ground, "Really?!?!" Sadly, we were leaving the very next day so there was no time for me to take a field trip. Next year? I am so going to Harrisonburg and try not to drool all over the yarn. And hopefully I'll have something to show them as well (yes another Knitting Bunny).

Speaking of On the Lamb, I nearly fainted when I saw the pile of malabrigo lace weight AND on SALE!! Woot! Forgetting (once again) that I am a knitting blogger, I neglected to take a picture of the lusciousness. But I did manage to rescue to skeins and brought them home with me.

Malabrigo in ChocolateMalabrigo in Orchid

I just want to eat them all up.

Yes, I have a small weakness for Malabrigo lace.

Once I finished, my Super Secret Project (to be unveiled soon), I was free to start this beauty. (Yes i also have a small weakness for scarves).

Lace Ribbon Scarf

It's Lace Ribbon Scarf (Rav link) by Veronik Avery. This is such a simple fun scarf. I barely need the pattern any more. Great semi-mindless knitting.

Not so mindless, the Swallowtail Shawl (Rav link). Now I understand the nubs do suck--I have had tink back trying to fix a nub gone wrong. I have cursed when a nub tried to go wrong. Bad BAD nub!! I am half way through the second set of nub horror and hopefully can finish soon.

Swallowtail Nubs

I am considering adding beads to the edging--I just need to find them. I have a sneaky suspicion Jamey borrowed them for his stitch holders. I am looking forward to having this off my needles.

Although I am not sure if I am going to start the Bee Fields Shawl (rav link) or if I want to start a shawl of my own design. I guess it depends on my level of laziness. Grin.

Before I leave for today, I wanted to show you a work of art from Jamey's Grand Mother. I love it (although I may replace the buttons).

Knitting Group

Okay, so folks have been clamouring for pictures of the recent Knit Meet Ups. Life's been I am just now finished with all the editing and uploading.

This is from our wonderful pot luck in July (a bit before we left on vacation).

And from our August pot luck this past Saturday. It was a small affair due to all the rain and storms. But still full of good food and fun.

We're BACK!!

We just got back from our trip. It was a very productive trip knitting wise. One of my super secret projects was finished and delivered--however--it will remain a secret until November. Sorry guys.

I visited my favourite yarn shop in the world and stocked up on some more malabrigo lace weight. Woot!! Ooo the plans I have for it.

More tales and pictures tomorrow. We drove straight for 24 hours and I am cramped and tired.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Okay fellow Knutters, I am leaving on our annual vacation. But as I can not stay totally unplugged from the internet for long. I will check email and may even post to the blog (once or twice). I am planning on visiting several yarn shops and doing other knitterly at the very least expect a nice long fun post in two weeks.

Wish us luck (Murphy tends to follow us on vacation too...)!
