You no doubt already know this, but I’ll say it anyway. It has recently been brought to my attention that Jean of the Scottish Lamb is spearheading a hat drive. She is collecting hats to be delivered to Coalition for the Homeless in New York City. Details are on her blog, here. I understand there are prizes to be had.
The preview of the Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Knit.1 magazine is supposed to go live tomorrow on their website. Why do I tell you this? Oh, no particular reason (she said, whistling in an effort to seem nonchalant).
One of the features in this issue is a piece with “Projects From Our Favorite Bloggers.” I was very flattered to be asked to contribute a project for this piece. Betcha can’t guess what my project is . . .
Yeah, of course it is socks. These:
If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you’ll see that there is a fun little cable-y thingie running down the sides of these socks. These socks are knit toe-up, and are made from Socks That Rock Heavyweight, so they’d be a really quick holiday gift, should you find yourself in need of such a thing. While the magazine doesn’t officially go on sale until December 16, you will likely be able to find it available sooner. And if you are a subscriber, you’ll have your copy sooner than Dec. 16.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’ll be finishing my Midnight Lace Stole today.
I’m halfway done with the edging on the second side, so I ought to be able to finish this while watching a movie or two this afternoon.
I’ve got another stole to knit after this one, but I’m going to put that off for a little while to knit something quick that I discovered I could use.
Lucy is all a-twitter, wondering what it is.
