Much excitement here in the House of the Pointy Sticks. Tomorrow is August 15th and that means that I can finally start Camp Loopy Project Three! You can bet I'll be starting it in the car tomorrow morning on the way to work!
I've got my pattern and a new Chiaogoo needle.
I've got my yarn all wound and I've even knitted a swatch (and then unknitted it).
I've also slightly over-anticipated the completion of the shawl...I was in The Black Sheep on Saturday, having a delightful afternoon with Tracy et al. and saw a shawl pin...the perfect shawl pin...a shawl pin that I fell in love with.
So it came home with me.
I've finished the first of Mr. Pointy Sticks' pair of socks and have started the second.
I asked him if I couldn't just do a little something special at the cuff. He agreed as long as it "wasn't too fancy." So I just reversed the ribbing for the last six rows.
I like it...and he didn't think it was too fancy.
On Thursday I started a Harriet the Hippo for an upcoming baby shower. I've gotten the body and the tail knit...just have to do two arms and two ears. I was hoping to finish all the knitting this weekend but alas, I pooped out. Pictures when she's all done.
