Since I last posted, I’m happy to say that I’m a much happier, more content knitter. There’s been a few changes for me, the biggest being a move to a new department at work. The job is harder now, but it was a good move for me because I’m learning a LOT from my boss, a Java expert and ex-Army sergeant. Sometimes I need a kick in the pants to get going – my boss graciously obliges!
And I’ve been knitting:
I finished the cashmere cable scarf:
I made a Spectrum Scarf… for myself. I knit this 2 years ago for a friend to give to his wife for Christmas, and since I had leftover yarn… well, now I have one. Then I made another – same lace pattern, slightly different use of color:
I started on a pair of socks, for me… :
… because I’m waiting for a special order of yarn to arrive so I can start this:
That lace jacket? Not for me. I’m knitting that for a good friend.
So in summary, things are good. Next up: the annual Knitter’s Day Out conference in Enola, PA. I’m taking classes in Shadow Knitting and Basic Crochet, and there are a few items on my Wish List that I’m hoping to find at the event’s Marketplace. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely looking forward to Fall.
