It's still not finished, but at least it's off the needles. :-) I knitted this Shrug with Knit Picks Palette on KP size 1 needles. I didn't think I would ever finish it. I must say, the Palette turns into a totally different fabric once it's been blocked. It is so soft, and I'm glad. I was a bit disappointed with the Palette at first. I know some people make socks with it, and I couldn't have imagined wearing a sock made out of the stuff, until I washed it. I could totally wear it now. All that's left, is to sew up the arm seams, pick up a bunch of stitches and knit a 1x1 ribbing. That shouldn't take long, right? HA! I'm contemplating letting my Mom sew the seams. My finishing techniques aren't that great. :-)
Sherilyn, this picture is for you. I know you'll totally appreciate it. HA! Ya'll should really check out Sherilyn's blog. She is an awesome knitter, and she is FAST! It's my new Cricut Expressions machine!!!! Oh wait, there is a sock there too. I'm working on it's mate....I'm in the middle of turning the heal right now. I'll post more details once they're both finished. :-)
Have ya'll checked out the new Knitty? I must admit, there weren't many patterns this time that caught my eye. But, this one surprised me. Becca brought the pattern to Moe's on Monday night. Apparently, Katie was paying attention. Yesterday, she said, "Mom, you know that skirt Miss Becca is making? Could you make it for me too?" I told her I wouldn't mind making it, but she doesn't wear skirts. She replied, "Well, there are two kinds of skirts...skirts I like, and skirts I don't like. That is a skirt I would like." HA! So, I guess I'll be knitting a skirt. I totally cannot wait to feel the Hempathy.
I have planned my next pair of socks. Toe-up Jaywalkers using Socks That Rock yarn. Yumm-o. :-) Mommy duty calls. Until next time.......
