This is my blog’s new home
Back to knitting. Having finished the munchkin dress at last. Is this the cutest little munchkin ever or what? She is the daughter of a friend. I am very contentedly knitting away at my bee stole again. I probably won’t finish in time to take it to Atlanta for Agnes Scott parents weekend, and I’m not going to injure myself trying. But if I did, well, it would be nice. Wearing it, I mean, not injuring myself. The dress will be worn here Y’all come. Bring the kiddies! I’m also swatching bambu 7 and trying on pattern ideas. I should be attacking UFO’s. I’ll think about it.
I am sewing a munchkin dress for a local production of “oz” now. The munchkin is 5 years old, and the daughter of a friend. They need the costume by Wednesday, so I’ll have a picture of it around then. Then I can at last get back to my Bee stole.
After a few more rows I’ve decided to stick with this center join even though I’m not thrilled with the extra large yo’s in the edging at the join row. This picture shows the color of the yarn better.
I have several things on the needles right now (imagine that!) and I may even finish them someday. Here’s my first KAL with sexy knitter’s club. I’m using stash yarn that I didn’t have enough in one color for a solid Juliet, therefore the stripes.
Also a pic of some yummy yarn I got at knitch in Atlanta. Artyarns Silk Rhapsody! Feels like heaven. Only two skeins, but enough for a lace shrug of my own design with the help of sweater wizard.
I’ve been thinking about why I blog, and I think the reason is simply that I knit, therefore I blog. It’s iblogatory . . . umm . . . obligatory, isn’t it?
I am knitting the honeybee stole which can be found at knitspot.com. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful and clever design by Anne Hanson, and probably the most ambitious lace I’ve knitted so far. Pattern calls for provisional cast on at center back, knit down to edging, cast off, pick up prov cast on stitches, start with wrong side row 2. Anne has suggestions for a pretty join on her website.
