Wow. Hadn’t realized it has been quite this long since my last blog post! Sorry about that. LOL. Let’s see…what’s been happening? Well, I have some major MAJOR repairs to make to my house. I’ll be in construction for a long, long time. I might even bore you with it periodically. LOL.
I’ve started on Miriam Felton’s Icarus shawl (Ravel it!). I love it. I’m really enjoying knitting this. And I finally found the yarn I wanted in the color I wanted. I love Mim’s gray version (as seen on the cover of Best of Interweave Knits), but the story of Icarus, to me, calls for a fiery, hot, burning color. And I think this Malabrigo Lace is the perfect color. I wish it was in a smoother yarn like Zephyr, but this works for me. (As always, click for big)
I finished my Anthracite Shawl, but no FO pics as of yet. I’ve been busy with the whole house repair thing. Soon, hopefully. I just need a large space, some decent light, and 5 minutes. LOL.
I spent some time last week with a friend of mine from Chicago. Katie’s actually now my friend from Iowa, but she’ll always be Katie From Chicago to me. LOLOL. We managed to do quite a bit considering she was staying in Anaheim and we only had two days. I’ll have more on that (including photos and BHN) later in the week.
Until then, I hope everyone’s staying safe and cool this holiday weekend!
