I am still knitting while here visiting my family. I've gone to knitting practice here with the gals each Tuesday and have met some more super knitters I just want to bring home with me! I finished my Lisha Lace Scarf, and love it!! You can buy the pattern directly from Gina on her blog. The boys are at the inlaws tonight and my parents are gone out for the evening, Brent's doing the work gig, London or somewhere. I can't keep up with him. So that leaves me alone with mom's camera.
Nope...not a good angle to see the scarf.
Hum....Hello Boob, then straight up my nose. All clean :o)
By now the camera has apparently had enough of my mug and starts beeping at me in an odd way, but a better angle. So I try again and Voila, me wearing my Lisha Scarf. You can see better details of my scarf if you're on Ravelry. If you aren't, FOR SHAME! Also the cutest little elefante!! I adore this pattern. Gina printed out the pattern sometime ago and I begged her for it and finally made it while here in Ky with the knitting girls here as a KAL. I hope to get a picture next Tuesday of the Elefante's on parade with other's that have finished. (Knit, Sonya, Knit!)
I started another project, A summertime tunic from interweave knits. I'm excited to get this done in time to wear SOMETIME this summer I hope!
Also on the SP12 side of things I need to catch up on questions of the week.
What yarn (that you don’t have/haven’t used) would make your stash “complete”? Hum...well I don't know. I am not one of those knitters who buys yarn just to buy. I'm one of those who kind of needs a project in mind.
What yarn do you never want to be without?**
Sock Yarn. It's nice to have in the stash so when you don't have a project going you can just look for a sock pattern and get going.
Where is your favorite place to go for vacation/holiday?
Well before I moved to New England, it was New England. We went on a vacation once to Ocean City, Md and that was fun!
Where is one place you’d like to go?
I would love to visit England or Ireland or Germany.
What is your favorite type of project to take along on holiday/vacation?
I would have to say socks or stuff animals to knit! They a pretty portable and the animals keep the kids excited to see the finished result.
Tell us about a time that you packed too much knitting or were stranded without knitting.
That would be the Christmas we flew home to see mom and dad after we moved to New England. Our layover in Chicago was supposed to be 1 hour.... um yeah HELLO... CHICAGO!! It was 4 hours and my knitting was in the bag that I checked!! I figured I would put it in there because one hour is not long enough to knit when you have to keep kids entertained. After four hours I was longing for something to do!
Well that's enough of that! :) I think I'm caught up on the questions and hope that gave you a fun read. I'm off to sit on the couch, enjoy some quiet knitting time. Maybe I'll call the knitters at B&N tonight in Manchvegas.
