L-B came up yesterday, and brought her Colinette stash with her. We spread it out on my livingroom floor, along with my Colinette stash, and gazed in awe upon its loveliness. L-B rolled in it.
So of course I did too.
Wanting to get in the spirit of things, Lucy allowed herself to be dressed in L-B’s Koigu shawl.
And she decided she likes Koigu!
L-B also brought her Apple Laine Apple Butter socks she was working on the last time she was here:
Aren’t they gorgeous?
So we headed on in to Knit Happens. I wore my new Colinette poncho, so of course Kristine and I had to pose for a photo op.
We may have gotten a little silly . . .
But I calmed down long enough to pose for the Official Colinette Poncho Portrait.
And then, in front of a small intimate crowd, I cut open my steek. I don’t have photos of that because I was . . . uh . . . doing the cutting and picking up of the stitches. But Kristine took lots of photos and there will be proof positive on the Knit Happens blog!
So I’ll be temporarily abandoning my Noro Lily shell as my main project to finish Flora. Gotta knit the second sleeve.
So what yarn did I acquire at Knit Happens? Tune in tomorrow for my full confession.
