I got nuthin in the way of a title.

Bad knitter.. Bad knitter. Well, it's more a case of non-photographing knitter. I've finished up pair of simple socks, but haven't taken a picture yet. Also, there's a little cardigan-ey sweater I made early on in the spring and didn't take a picture of. (Some folks at a local knitting/eating Mexican food get together actually saw the beginnings of the sweater back a few months ago.) Ahh well. I'll try to dig out the camera and see if I can rustle up a couple that are semi-decent to put on here.

Speaking of the folks who were at the restaurant (yeah, I know, but it's a baby change of subject and it's my blog and I can be as tactless as I want) it was so nice to see people who don't give you the "look" when you're knitting. You know, "Hmmm that's odd. Wonder what that woman is crocheting? Maybe I'll pretend not to look in case she's embarrassed for doing something weird like that." THAT look. It was actually the first time in my life I've ever seen anyone else knit. How crazy is that?

The other good news is that my new needles should be here that will let me finish the border on the shawl that's been in the works forever and a day. PLUS, I got 10 skeins of a really pretty rusty red fingering weight (can't remember content and it's at the house and I'm not) that is asking very nicely to be turned into something for this fall.


So Laaaaazzyyyyyyy

Yep. That's me.

I've done nothing "blogworthy", so I'll have to bore you with the mundane.

I've been working along so slowly on the 'Secret of Bad Nauheim' stole. I think pretty much everyone else in the free world who was working on this stole finished weeks ago. Now I find myself at the point of picking up stitches around the stole to put the border on. My circ is too short for all the stitches to fit. How short? Waaaaaaaay short. I've got another on order, so at some point in time I will finish this. It looks like it's going to be gorgeous after it's blocked. ummm.. after I get the new needle, the stitches picked up, the border knit on and get it dyed a good color for the recipient. Heh. It's practically finished!
