... to post any photos at the moment, but there is knitting happening around here.
- I finished the knitting on the SKB - when I realized I had extra yarn, I went ahead and took out the bottom border (thankfully the sequinned yarn held up OK) and added about an inch and a half in length to the torso, then redid the border. Much better! I definitely need to block this, though, because I need a bit more length above the waist, hopefully the silk will stretch a bit for me. Other wise I'm really happy with it - can't wait to wear it in cooler weather.
- I had a weak moment on the Webs site, and picked up a couple of things. One was SWTC Gianna, a chunky wool/soy blend. I really like this yarn! I just wish it came in more appealing colors. It's getting hard to find - i think it may be discontinued. It would be great for the Lace Leaf Pullover from Loop-D-Loop. I'm using it for a shrug based on one from Anthropologie - pattern here.
- This pattern is so cool! I'll be starting it next, from some Elann.com alpaca that I've had for ages.
I finally caved and purchased the whole Options needle set from Knitpicks - so glad I did! I'm trying to use up stash and make a few Christmas gifts while I have the time, and it's hard when you don't have the right needles. I love love love these needles! So pointy! Cable so bendy! And purple! I already had a few needle tips and cables and I am so happy to have the whole set. I'm having fun organizing them into their little binder as well! I got out the P-Touch and I'm labeling all the pockets with the appropriate size.
OK, there's other stuff I've finished recently, check my flickr if you're interested. As I said, I can't be bothered...... (at least right now!)
