Wow, guys I noticed as I was logging in today that this is post #100! Can you believe that? Well, I guess it's not all that momentous or anything, but let's do something to celebrate! I will give away six stitch markers that will look something like this:
These are sterling silver rings and there will be two of each color, unless the winner wants all one color - now here's the question: What is my #1 favorite knitted object, or what is the one thing I like to knit above all others? And here's a hint: I love to knit these but I have given all of them away except for one. I will show it to you (again) next week.
I worked all day yesterday finishing this:
Sorry about the messy photo shot, but I'm kinda perturbed with it right now. You wouldn't believe how lonnnng this took me! from 10 am to 6pm with small breaks for my neck and lunch! Lookey at the pretty knitted lace edging:
I am hopeful it will block out correctly, and not be too small. This took five skeins of Malabrigo all together, so I am sure hoping it wasn't a wasted effort.
Next on the needles is this:
This is a freebie from Knittingdaily , called Charmed Wrap, that I am making for Caryn. Yes, I did type that right, it's for Caryn. She asked me originally for a heavily cabled knit out of an AS book for a bathrobe.
Well, I don't think she wants a full fledged bathrobe, as we looked at them in Dillards and not one was "right". So I presented her with this sweater and the answer was a resounding yes! The AS sweater would have taken me all winter plus as you will read below, I had misgivings about knitting it for her.
Now, on to the yarn choice. Well, let me tell ya, I have made her several things in the past and they never are worn more than once. Therefore, I was not shelling out the $ for another possible sit in the closet sweater, so I had her choose from Lion Brand yarns. This color (which I had a skein shot of that blogger will not let me upload. . .) is Delft Blue which I think will look fabulous on her! Well, that is if she wears it. . .
