Current score on the Starlight Evening Wrap is Shawl 7, Heide 0. I will not give up though… I’m just waiting for a quiet moment when I can concentrate without interruption.
In 8 days I’m going to Packwood! Packwood is a small town nestled in the Cascade Mountains of Western Washington. There I will meet up with 7 other knitters for a weekend of food, fiber & fun. We’re renting a quiet cabin. Most of these other ladies have made this an annual event and this year I was invited to join them. I’ve only “met” one of the other knitters before on-line. That would be S over at KitKatKnit and she is also the person who asked me to come. This will be an adventure and loads of fun. I keep changing my mind about which projects to bring… I may just bring them all!
Here is a quick and dirty picture of the finished Ribby Cardi. This is a “meat and potatoes” kind of sweater. It’s simple, hearty, warm and will be well-used for everyday wear.
Still no arrival of the Harry Potter sock yarn. I’ve noticed a direct correlation between shipping time and difficulty level. The longer I wait for the yarn, the more simple my sock knitting plans become. If it doesn’t show soon then my poor swappee will be receiving single colored stockingnet socks with maybe one contrasting stripe at the top!
