A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

It's a Sickness

I cast on for the Wool Peddler's Shawl. I couldn't help myself. For now it's my computer knitting project. It lives by the computer and I pick it up and knit away in garter stitch while I'm online. I also cast on for a new shop project--the Cocoon Lace Scarf. It's a lovely lace scarf by Evelyn Clark written for Fiber Trends. I'm making a small scarf using a single skein of Anny Blatt Fine Kid in a purple/gray. I'm using Crystal Palace US 8 circulars to work with this lovely, soft yarn. It's bliss. The needles are so smooth and pointy. The stitches just glide. Wonderful. But since I don't always have much time to knit at work it may take months to finish the scarf.

The Making Waves shawl continues. And continues. God, rectangles are so boring.
