First of all:
The weaverknits/iknityouknot miteralong has come to a close. Only, mine might not be done, since I didn't crochet a neat little edging around the two sides that don't already have a nice border (my long-tail cast on made what amounts to white piping, I love it!) Also: hanging loop?
For our next trick, we'll be co-reading War and Peace. For real. As in I already bought it.
And speaking of weaverknits, guess what this is:It's a swatch for Tempest, which is soon to be my latest WIP. I'm going to use Knitpicks Shadow, held doubled. (The swatch is single-stranded on the left, and double on the right.) The color in the swatch is Lost Lake, which I got at the Windy City Knitting Guild's yarn swap last night. The swap was pretty awesome - who doesn't like getting rid of stuff they don't want in favor of stuff they do want, and donating to charity at the same time? All-around excellent. The only problem? I need another color. Suggestions?
At the other end of the WIP spectrum is my Shetland Triangle, made of Fleece Artist Blue Face Leicester DK. (DISCLAIMER: it might actually be the aran weight, I have lost the tag into the depths of my stash.) I kind of want to toss it and eat it.It just needs a good blocking, which it will receive some evening this week. Possibly Friday, since I have the day off, because it's my birthday and my union is awesome like that.
