Last Thursday afternoon my knit-bud L-B won the Nimble Fingers Contest at the Virginia State Fair — the contest for fastest knitter. How cool is that? Congratulations, L-B! What does that make — 5 first prizes?
There are photos of the contest on Kathy’s blog over at Holly Spring Homespun.
Raise your needles in salute to L-B, Power Knitter!
with the onset of autumn, inching ever closer to winter and 2006 being the winter olympics… are you planning on knitting the dale of norway torino sweater? i love seeing you complete those olympics sweaters.
The answer is . . . I haven’t decided!
Torino is one of the prettiest Dale ski sweaters I’ve seen for a while, so I’m tempted. I think I’d do the light colorway if I did.
Are you still spinning, Wendy? It seems like it has been quite a while since you shared any spinning adventures with us!
Sadly, no, I am not at the moment, due to back pain. (Not back pain brought on my spinning, but chronic back pain that precludes spinning.) Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to it soon.
This is how far I’ve gotten on the front:
I’m up to the armhole shaping. I was hoping to finish the front today, but I got my book back from the copy editor and I’m in the midsts of reviewing the edits.
A tip for other writers:
Cats make very good editors.
I’ve got a busy week ahead of me!
