I owe you photos of knitting projects. I think I’ve mentioned a couple of them already.
Like these Easy Mitts for my brother’s girlfriend. Why, no! They’re not quite done yet! Such a surprise.
Once again, I adore the yarn I’m using for a pair of mitts. I really, really, really want enough for a sweater. A closer look?
I do have enough of this Malabrigo Sock for a sweater. This is going to take me a long time to do, especially since I can’t decide what to do.
When Mom was here, she brought out a shawl she’d just finished. Remember my little koigu triange shoulder shawl? Mom made a big one, with the edging pattern and everything, out of Araucania alpaca in blues and turquoise. Such a lovely thing. I got to block it with her. I’m not sure how it made it back in her suitcase. I wanted it. The girlfriend-in-law wanted it. We all used it. So I started this. It’s the Beginner’s Triangle from A Gathering of Lace. Alpaca yarn from West Valley Alpacas, only about an hour and a touch from Oakland (two years ago already!). Very simple, but I still manage to mess up every so often. It takes an impromptu fix gracefully. At the time of this writing, it’s what I’m working on most. (I’m writing ahead. I spent the day with posts in my head, so I’m taking advantage of the opportunity and knocking a bunch out ahead of time. Then I’ll have another 2 or 3 week break, but maybe not.)
I’m almost a third of the way through. I love knitting this. I can’t wait to wear it!
