"good" week

First, I had a good start...

death_by_picot

I really like how sweet and feminine picot is, and while it's kind of a chore, it's a good thing. It turned out to be an awesome knit-group-knit, too - I cannot walk and chew gum but I can chat and knit stockinette. whew. And if I keep at this baby, I can pull it's lonely match off the singles market.

Then I had a good spin...

Hello Yarn - Throve - Corridale

Is it redundant to day I like this skein best? Because I think I love this one the best.

And I watched a good movie...

And I started a good book...

So all in all, it's good.

Is that the start of a sock? Is that all one yarn? It's very pretty! I can't talk and knit at the same time either :)

Your spinning is a-MA-zing!!!! I am so impressed. And I like that one the best (so far) too! The sock looks very pretty as well. Have a great weekend.

I've never tried picot, but it looks lovely. I love that hello yarn spin. Isn't her fiber a dream to spin?

Hooray for good weeks! Yours looks like it was a great one, actually! Your spinning impresses me every time -- that looks like some of the yummiest, squishiest, prettiest handspun ever. Here's to a good weekend!

I love your sock! I have yet to knit a picot edge, but I guess I could always start! I need to start a new, easy sock for Maryland Sheep and Wool knitting. I think a picot edge would be perfect - thanks for the idea!
And your handspun is gorgeous!
Love Anna Quindlen!
