OK. For a while there, I was maintaining 2 knitting projects at once. One for travel (the Bar-8 socks) and one for home (the Flame Cardi). Well. Then, as we all know, I finished the Flame Cardi. So I needed another project.
And, remember? We all voted? Well - here it is - the cuff of the Tilted Jacket. I love the yarn ( Emmanuella Merino Wool from Goddess Yarns) and the pattern is fun.
But, then, I had Friday off, and visited the Fiber Loft in Havard. I've been having trouble deciding what to knit my Sockapaltwoza pal - mostly because she really didn't give me any guidance. She gave me her foot size, but no detail on what colors or type of sock she likes. I was going to go with wild colors, but then, got worried that she wouldn't wear them. Therefore, I'm going with some calm colors, and a fun toe up sock pattern called See Saw Socks from Knit Net. Here is the start:

Finally - I also took a class on Saturday at the World in Stitches. My Butterfly girls convinced me to take this class. I wasn't totally convinced that I would like this 'Beaded Shawlette' - but it is a BLAST to make! The technique makes it so you don't have to pre-string the beads... and the pattern is fun! I'm actually close to finishing mine. It was very hard to get a decent picture:
I'm even considering making the smaller size for my Stepmother for her birthday. We shall see.
Tomorrow I'm back at work - but this little time off was really great. I slept in really late this morning, read my book some, did a lot of knitting and never got out of my PJ's. I'm ready to conquer the world! Well, maybe after another night of sleep.
