I've Got News...

I've been anticipating this next week for months. It is filled with huge plannings, endless worries and a rush of excitement.

I start my vacation tomorrow and for the next 7 days I will be visited by family and I can't wait to see them. My dearest daughter will turn the ripe old age of 5 this weekend and the following week she'll be off to kindergarten. Someone please give me a glass of wine... or two.

In the knitting department I've been making my way along on the Faery Ring. It is growing very nicely. I'm almost to the point where I bind off for armholes. Note To Self: Look for button while at Stitches.

The Tapestry Cowl is done...yes, I did it. I bound off all 220 stitches kitchener style. I think I deserve a metal, or at least a cookie. My finished object post will be coming soon. With all that has been going on I haven't had time to block it and knowing how humid it's been I don't know how long it will take to dry.

The newest project on the needles is Willoughby, designed by Jared Flood. His newest patterns have just been released and you can purchase them individually or in one sweet book, which I chose to do. This was my find when we had our field trip last week to Wool and Company out in Geneva, IL.

I'm still up in the air about the real heft of the yarn. I was looking for something with a little more body to it and I just don't know if this yarn will work.

In Other Knitting Related News...

Nana's Knitting Shop has there September Class schedule up and if you scroll down you'll see a class on Two Socks on Two Circs Toe Up! Guess who's teaching the class?

Oh yeah baby, it's me! I can hardly believe it myself, but hell it's starting to hit and I've got to step-up my game if I'm to have everything ready in time.

So, if your interested in learning socks toe-up, two-at-time and you happen to be free on Saturday mornings, sign-up!
