Secret of the Stole ii… Full speed ahead!
Not the greatest pictures, but you get the idea.
I finished hint #1 at lunch today while listening to a “knitting at night” podcast. I’m new to podcasts, and I listened to #11 and #12 at lunch. I love it. It’s like listening to a friend read their blog to you. I got so much good info from Casey’s podcasts and many good laughs too. The only problem I had was, every now and then she would start saying knitting stitches or numbers and I’d have to think “what number was I on, what stitch did I just knit”. 🙂
Surprise… It’s the Huge Blanket Bag… This is an oldie but goodie. I need to sew the pocket on the inside and it will be done. I started knitting this… wow, I’m gonna have to check my really, really old blogs to see when I started this one. OK, I found it… I blogged about this bag August 2, 2006!!! I was working on it just before I got married. Cute pictures of Cassie too, if you want to check it out, I have a link to my old blog on my side bar below the KAL section.
Next up… Yes, it’s the Mr. Greenjeans sweater in a beautiful shade of watermelon!
I love knitting with Cascade 220. I hope to be working on this again very soon. I dug it out and put it on to make sure I’m ready to start the next phase. It’s hard to see what a wonderful color this is. It reminds me of summer.
It’s hard to photo this right now, but I will get more pictures as soon as I resume knitting on this.
Last up… this is something I didn’t knit. I watched her knitting on this during breaks at work. This is my friend dear friend Patty wearing her Rusted Root (pattern from Zephyr Style). I love it. And I love all patterns that are knit from the top down!
Well that’s my update. Have I said how happy I am that I’m knitting again, and that both hands are doing great. It sure makes a difference when I’m knitting. I’m a little sore on the left side from the surgery, and it seems to get tired a little quicker than I like, but I remember the same thing happening on the right side. So I’m sure by the end of the this month all will be great.
Well that’s a wrap for tonight.
