I received some gorgeous Knitpicks Harmony straight needles in the mail yesterday from none other than Scout - I won a contest on her blog and was treated to these beauties. I am thinking how pretty they would look, and practical too naturally, knitting up a simple garter scarf in my latest handspun experiment (they are all experiments for now) and it so happens to also be a product of Scout's Swag - Superwash Merino in Power Couples. I was inspired by Kirsten's of Through the Loops version. But here is mine:
I'm having so much fun spinning but I must confess I don't know how much I have when I am done, I haven't measured any of my skeins - I must plead ignorance - therefore, I am not sure how far I'll get on any project - for now, I am just petting them all.
Speaking of Kirsten...Ravelers - check out her new Mystery Sock KAL in honor of Socktoberfest. Since my sweater seemed to thrash my wrists I am going to quietly enjoy this fun little KAL - Kirsten has the most amazing designs, I can't wait to see how this develops. Join the group and join in. For tonight, I shall be "knitting with Pushing Daisies" - the show is back and I am so excited. I have made a pie to celebrate my 14th wedding anniversary today (good grief, where does the time go?) AND to pay homage to my beloved piemaker coming back to primetime.:P
I made Martha Stewart's pie crust using my Cuisinart, I usually go Pillsbury but 14 years deserves homemade - now we'll see if it is edible.
