Seemingly like many of us over the last couple of weeks, I have been experiencing my share of stress and frustration. As Mil said... something in the water.
When the going gets tough... the tough so shopping.
However, there isn't anything in the MenWhoKnit store that is really fun, edgy or exciting.
Has anyone heard from Jason1978 lately?
I know he had been going through chemo but he hasn't been on here in well over a month.
My knitting buddy, Beth, found this fun and funky pattern for the Lock Nest Hat by designer Teri Barr in Interweave Felt magazine (Special Issue 2007) and has already knit up two for herself.
My Most Beloved puts up with a lot when it comes to my knitting and fiber addiction. I am so lucky to have such a loving and supportive partner. He has long had one request... Cashmere Socks!
I finished the Baby Uggs Booties that I have been working on. There are a quick knit, really, but I did the Second Sock using the wrong size needles so it became the first sock of the second set!
My sister's husband is a semi-professional photographer and took some shots of my sister wearing the shawl I made for her!
Makes me so proud!!
After all my joy and celebration of completing my short row heel turn and picking up and concealing all my wrapped stitches without any assistance... I tried on my sock!
OMG!! I am so freaking excited I literally jumped up and down, flapping my hands like a plum fool while screaming like a pre-adolescent Japanese school girl on fire!!
I ventured into Chicago yesterday to yarn hop and meet up with friends for dinner.
