Knitting Action

It will probably amaze the majority of you but there has been some actually knitting going on at CCK.

For Mother's Day I knitted my sister the flower washcloth from Weekend Knitting. It was so much fun watching it come together. I missed out on the Chocolate Soap from Simpler Thyme when I was at the MSWF but ordered some on-line to include in her gift as she is a chocolate junkie.

I finally finished Stefanie's Camisole Tube, however I was disappointed, okay very disappointed that it was too big for me. Strike that, it was HUGE!!!!! I knitted the large and it was at least 4 inches too wide. It actually fell, gaped and pooled it was so big. Blocking it must relaxed the stitches which I'm sure added to the size issue. I used a lovely wool yarn called blackberry that I got from Purl in CA, I think. Anyway I love the color too much to pass on onto a girlfriend, so I'll be frogging it and re-knitting in smaller size in the future. My sister has also put in a request for a brown one.

I am winding yarn tonight for my next two projects which will be worked w/ stash yarn. Okay one stash yarn and one recently acquired stash yarn; so recent that it's still in the mailing envelope!! I'm probably the last one to jump on board the Jaywalker wagon but I'm going to give it a go in Mama E's Pretty In Pink colorway. Isn't her yarn YUMMY!!! And boy on boy how I wish I could go on the SEA SOCKS Cruise 2007 she's helped put together.

Project #2 is this beauty
