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.

The Horror

First, a shot of the morning sky:

But that is not the horror to which I allude in the title  of this post. This is the horror:

Seed stitch. 483 stitches per row for 8 rows. The horror . . . the horror . . .

Have I ever mentioned how much I loathe working seed stitch?

Never mind, let’s move on to happier things. Like . . .

The Big Wieners!

The Random Number Generator toiled long and hard, and selected five individuals who left comments containing movie titles that contain state names. Those five big wieners winners are:

Nikkapotamus, Elysbeth, Debi, Bonnie, and Wendy in Indy. I have emailed these five winners, so if you think one of those people is you, check your email.

These five each win a copy of the WendyKnits pattern of their choice. You all win my undying gratitude for playing along with my silly request. icon smile The Horror

This Weekend

I’m heading out this weekend to teach at a private knitting retreat. I’ll be returning home at some point on Sunday, but won’t be blogging til Monday. See you then! Hopefully with this thing complete!
