My current work in progress:

1. Strandwanderer, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Wollmeise Merino "Pure" in the "Zenzi" colorway on a 3.25 mm (U.S. size 3) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

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.

Momma’s going away again? Catnip par-tay time!

Edgy

I’ve been on edge this weekend.

On the edge of my shawl, that is. At this point I’ve got almost two-thirds of the edging done.

I put the shawl down on the floor for a photo-op.

Lucy immediately went into spokesmodel mode. She wanted to demonstrate the size of the knitted piece for you.

She also spent a few minutes inspecting my work.

So the rest of today will be spent in edging-knitting, laundry, and other various household tasks. Oh, and I will start my next project.

I wound the yarn yesterday:

Isn’t it lovely?

I will likely not finish the Order to Chaos Shawl edging today, because I need to get this next project started so it is in a state where I can take it for commuter knitting tomorrow. And once I get started, I’m not going to want to put it down.

We’ll see.
