First of all, did I mention that
SCHOOL HAS STARTED!!!????!!!???
Teachers rock. My son has two teachers who jobshare (5th grade) and I'm already planning what I'm going to spin/knit them for holiday gifts. Every time I see them, there's a haloish glow around them. That's how much I love the hell out of teachers right now!
I've been knitting a lot.
Finished Cascade BFFs
They already went to my mom. See I've bartered for painting. She likes to paint (rooms too) and we have two kids rooms that need it. I will be trading 8 pairs of socks for two painted rooms. People PUHLEASE! You know I got the better end of the deal on that one!
I finished Clue 2 of SOTSII, but have been working on other stuff and haven't started Clue 3 yet. This is knitting up so nicely and quickly for me, that I figure I can finish up clue 3 while camping this weekend.
You know how I feel about the photos of unblocked lace. Trust me, it's going to be beautiful.
I've also finished the Filatura Di Crosa Ice Queen I knitted for my middle sister.
If you click on it and view the large size on flickr. You'll see the wee little sparkling beads.
See? Super busy! Oh and I am working on a pair of gloves for number 5 to go with the Modified We Call Them Pirates. I used a fingerless glove pattern by J. Campbell which I love and have made a bajillion times and charted myself up a pattern modified from the hat for the back of the glove. Done and done!
Photos coming soon. Only one glove is done and I hate all those damn ends to weave in, but the kid seemed to love them, so that makes it worth it!
