I started knitting with the lovely Serenity 20 yarn that I showed you in yesterday’s blog post. It’s like knitting whipped cream.
Yes, I know I titled this post “Like Buttah” when the experience is really “Like Whipped Cream.” I have mislead you. Deliberately. Why? Just because I am that way. (I’m getting quite snippy about my blog post titles, aren’t I?)
Anyhow, here is the start of a new stole:
The way this baby is going together is that I will knit it in two pieces (this being the border at one end of the first piece) and then attach those two pieces together at the center.
You know what that means, don’t you?
(Insert ominous music here)
Though in all likelihood I will do a three-needle bind-off when I get to that point in the shawl. I can picture it now: I’ll finish the second piece, it’ll be late at night, I’ll be tired and impatient (so what else is new?) so I’ll say “screw the kitchener” and do the three-needle bind-off.
But when I write up the pattern I’ll tell you to kitchener it. It doesn’t really seem fair, does it?
Coming Soon to a Venue Near You
A week from Friday is the start of my travel in support of Toe-Up Socks for Every Body, which comes out on Tuesday the 23rd. Not that I’m counting the days or anything.
And the next Friday, April 2, I’ll be in my hometown, Alexandria, VA, at fibre space for a Book Premiere Party and book signing. Check their site here for the details. Note that you can contact them starting today to reserve a book should you wish to do so.
As always, my travel schedule is posted on my Travel and Teaching page which you can always get to via the menu tab at the top of this page. There is not a whole lot there yet, but we’ve got lots of events planned, so keep checking back. final arrangements have not yet been made for most of my travel and I don’t post until that has been done.
Lucy has once again elected to stay home with her Daddy while I am on the road.
She is one smart kitty.
