Here, what you’ve all been waiting for:
A progress pic of Frogner!
(You have all been waiting for that, right?)
I’ve not been spending as many hours knitting as usual. I was caught up in Life of Pi and finished it yesterday. As Christopher Walken as the Continental might say:
Wow! Wowie, wow, wow!
That was some book. I’m looking forward to the group discussion.
Check Out This Free Pattern!
My knitbud Geane has posted a free pattern for something extremely cute, clever, and useful. Check out her blog entry from Thursday to read about it and get the pattern. I want one! I think a kit to make this would be a big seller — any vendors out there reading this?
It’s nice to know that I’m not the only Birkie Hussy (as Teresa so very ably put it in my comments yesterday). But now I have another problem.
When we were in the full throes of Birkie Lust in the shoe store in Bobcaygeon, someone (and I believe it was Kathy — I’m blaming her anyway for my current status as a Birkie Hussy) pointed out that Birkies are fabbo to wear to show off your handknit socks.
You know what this means, don’t you?
I have to stop giving away all my handknit socks and keep some for myself.
(Insert greedy laughter here.)
Something Else I’m Lusting After . . .
This design is in the same Dale book as Frogner, and is also made with Daletta. I really really like it. It’s available as both pullover and cardi, and I’m yearning for the pullover. I may find myself placing an order with Bea Ellis soon . . . her yarn of the month (20% off!) for the month of July is Daletta!
And Speaking of Wow! Wowie, wow, wow!
It’s finally Friday. This has been a long and heinous work week.
I think we’ll announce the July contest on Monday. Watch this space and have a good weekend, all!
In closing, let me say this: Peter is a very, very nice guy!
