First of all, I need to announce the winner of my review copy of the book This Belongs to Me: Cool Ways to Personalize Your Stuff by Anna Wray. The Random Number Generator chose Angie, who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who submitted a comment to be entered in the contest. Keep reading, because I’ll have more books and products to review and give away!
I attended and taught at the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling at the end of last week and was fortunate to travel to and from Colorado in-between snow events. It was the first Colorado fling, and my first visit to Loopy in Colorado. A good time was had by all and I was as usual too busy teaching to do anything like take photos.
I designed a shawl pattern as a gift for the attendees, and now that they all have copies, I have offered it for sale on Ravelry. You can find my sideways short-row shaped shawl, Colorado Spring, here.
Contrary to my usual modus operandi, I did knit on the plane so managed a fair bit of progress on Viajante.
In answer to a question in the comments, the rainbow colorway is colorway “EQ.” In the same comment my opinion was asked about who has the best selection and price for Kauni yarns — my answer is that I don’t know. What I do know is that the rainbow colorway is pretty popular and tends to sell out first.
In response to another comment, yes, my mouse is on the left side of the computer and yes, I am indeed left-handed!
Here is a close-up of the increases.
I am doing my increases for Viajante by knitting to 1 stitch before the center stitch, then I knit in the front and back of that stitch, and then again in the front and back of the center stitch. It makes a pretty increase, I think.
Apparently Lucy missed me and sulked while I was gone. I was very happy to return home to her. Happiness is a purring kitty!
