And just in case you hadn’t noticed, I’m in the process of moving my finished objects to Flickr – accessible on the sidebar, there. I’m still working on it, but the stuff from this year should be mostly up there.
The Sapphire Tank is coming along quite nicely, and quickly for 3.5 mm needles!
Unfortunately on the subway ride home from stitch and bitch last night, I discovered that I’d accidentally increased and had to rip back.
Annie Modesitt’s Corset has begun, out of that bamboo Eden I showed last time. It feels great, and it’s a nice change to do a pattern with more going on than just plain stockinette.
While she was away in Europe, Julie bought me an awesome present – an antique mother of pearl button, from London. Isn’t it pretty?
And last but not least – the advertising. See this?
The second edition of take back the knit is out, and it’s got tons of cool stuff, including lots of – you guessed it – yours truly. A snippit of all the awesomeness…
