So much to tell, so little time.
I got some great knitting gadgets as well! The two annbudd books I had been coveting as well as a BALL WINDER!! WOO HOO!!! Who knew winding yarn into balls would be so much fun?!?!
I didn't get as much knitting done as I would have liked. I am half finished with the front of Cherie. But I have sad news to report on my jaywalkers. Imagine if you will a sock ,a sock with only an inch or so to go til you start the toe decreases. A sock with a very distinctive stitch pattern that includes double decreases. This is a beautiful sock. You step back to admire your work. It is then that you notice (to your HORROR) that about 3 inches back you have dropped a stitch. Now this isn't a reason to panic until you notice it is a stitch that is right next to the double decrease. Now, maybe a better knitter than I could have fixed it but alas I had to rip it back. So I did not finish a jaywalker sock in 05 as I would have liked. BUT... I still have 12 more hours to live that dream!
MUST, COMPLETE A SOCK!
In much happier knitting news got my yarn for angelica!! I love the color. It was supposed to be "dapple grey" but it turned out to have a lovely pale pink streak. I can't wait to see how it knits up!! The hip knits silk is so soft and a really interesting texture!
I hope everyone has a really safe & wonderful New years eve!!
Happy New Year to you and yours!
So sorry about the jaywalkers! But the yarn is really pretty and you have a ball winder now!! (when I got mine I wound EVERY STRAND of yarn in my stash that day. So fun!!)
