Knitting News

I started a new Star Doily blanket while I was thinking about frogging the original model. Version deux features Cascade 220 in a lovely Teal color, knit on size 9 Addi lace needles. I love it, and it’s moving along quickly. I’m waiting for Knitting On The Edge to come (ordered from library) so I can decide what the edge will look like.

Only one teensy weensy little problem with version deux; I thought the Cascade was superwash. I used the ball I wound several months ago first, and was more than a little shocked when I saw the label on the second skein when I took it out to wind ….when the first ball was all knit up. Oy! Luckily, I truly believe this mommy will be able to handle hand washing. The blanket will come with an apology for causing her extra work.

The “wrong side” to show how far along it is.

I also whipped up this little cutie last night. Tea Mitten by Elizabeth Kleven. I modified the pattern to fit this sweet little pot which is to be a gift for someone. Knit from Noro Kureon, size 7 Addi Turbos.

I have a super busy week, so I’m not sure how much blogging will be done. I’m leaving for the East Coast on Thursday….again. I’ve got a wedding to attend on Saturday in Hershey, PA and then a very special visit planned to someone in Virginia next Monday. I am soooo excited!
