My current work in progress:

Newlyn Jacket, by Jane Gottelier, knit from Rowan Original Denim, using 3.25mm and 3.5mm needles.

Still Life With Pink Blob

On my desk this morning.


The bag has made an appearance in my blog before — it was made and given to me by Richmond knitter Issy when I was down there at the end of June. It’s just the right size for carrying the pink blob around!

I’m getting ready to transfer the pink blob to a longer needle. It’s on a 24-incher right now. While that is perfectly fine for the number of stitches I’ve got, I do like being able to spread my knitting out a bit more, particularly when I’m knitting a new design that I may wanna make changes to on the fly.


This Weekend

Tomorrow I’m going to Minneapolis to teach classes and hang with knitters at Needlework Unlimited. I hope I’ll see some of you there.

I return home late-ish Sunday night, so no blog post on Sunday. (Oh, and I’ll be internet-free for most of the weekend too.) So I’ll see y’all Monday.

Lucy Sez:
