Nothing this weekend could equal the excitement of finishing the Shrug, so this post wil be a bit of a letdown. We did have a nice weekend...a few good walks with the dogs, lots of knitting, hanging out and watching the Oscars last night...although I'm still searching for a good book to read (ideas welcome).
I taped the new Lily Chin show, Stitchcraft, and I'll comment on that later.
But anyway...finished a sock for Tim out of the medium weight Socks that Rock in Lagoon.
It turned out nicely...little pooly, but mostly stripey in a nice way.
I try to work on the Mandarin Blouse a bit every day...I think there are something like 180 stitches on the needle being knit in a rib pattern. It's a front-button blouse knit in one piece, so I'm more than halfway done, and hopefully when I divide for the front and the back the progress will be a bit more apparent.
