Marathon Post

Lots to tell you and lots to show you...

So, Paul has taken to quoting my blog in our everyday conversations. The other day I was working on my Adult Surprise Jacket and he commented that it was coming along and looked to be about 2/3 done. (my blog post had said it was about 3/4 done, but whose counting) Mind you he would have no idea if I was 1/4 done by looking at it. Pretty impressive that he pays attention (mostly) to what I write!

And here is the Adult Surprise Jacket, mostly done!

Just needs to be seamed....

See those orange clips? Those are the new Knit Klips I got in that help with seaming. Very handy.

In the meantime, I made the mobius cowl with Noro Kochoran.

It's amazing how the angora in the yarn "blooms" while you are knitting it and after it is washed. So soft too. It only took me 3 1/2 hours to make! This is for the class being held Feb 7, 2-4pm. It was very cool to do the mobius cast on that Cat Borhdi came up with. So weird to see that it actually works out.

And I've started the Drop Stitch Scarf for the class Feb 21 2-3:30pm:

Great for beginners! I'm making it with Linares by Ester Bitran. The picture doesn't show the nice shininess of the yarn - it's very pretty.

Once I'm done with this, it's on to finishing the double knit hat, then starting the Ishbel Shawl, both for upcoming classes. Whew!
