Right to the point.
This is a Sunday morning picture (when I intended to post pictures- oops). I'm now 10 rows into the colorwork on the second side. It's going a lot faster now that have a better handle on the whole "fair isle" thing!! It's a lot to keep track of and using two hands! Sheesh!!
On to my distraction:
My first giotto sock finished. Also a fast(er) knit when you actually work on it. It took me no time once I started the heel. I love the way Marie's yarn knits up. It's so soft & looks great when it's made into a sock!
I'm really concentrating on finishing the bag this week. I feel like I'm in the homestretch now. The only problem I have with it is it's really heavy & awkward to turn. I suppose I should have used circular needles.... Ah hindsight. Maybe I'll switch it over tonight.
So, is anyone else completely enthralled by Texas Ranch House ? I love these PBS reality shows.
I'm thinking of whipping up a special dinner for Cinco de Mayo on Friday night (for no reason in particular). When I was at the farmer's market this afternoon the cilantro smelled so good that it's all I've been thinking about since then.
I was thinking of making this. I had completely forgotten that I clipped that recipe til' Shelterrific wrote about it.
Any other vegetarian ideas out there?
the bag is looking great, switch that over to circs STAT.
the giottos are looking good, or the giotto rather : ) sigh I shall start mine umm soonish, you know sometime yeah
(i also love the banner. too cute!)
