WWIP Wonderful Weds!

Ok, maybe I am exaggerating a little but the weather last week was spring like and it is really nice to have everything settled down for the moment. Parents are off gallivanting again, DS is at Uni and DH is around here someplace puttering around, and willow has assumed the position (zzzz).

I want to thank everyone for the delightful comments on Tam A. I have begun Tam B this week.

Three Tams B

Contemplating making “Transitions Yoke Cardigan”. I haven’t made myself a sweater in some time. I have the yarn in my stash. In the spring and fall there are a number of semi outdoor events, (eg barns, arenas, sheads etc) where our handspinning group gather to spin for the community. I could use some advice, have any of you knit this pattern?

On friday I retreated myself to another Lucy Neatby DVD “Finess your knitting 2” and though I didn’t report it the week before I purchased “Finess your Knitting 1” I really like Lucy, she is a great teacher and demonstrator. I recommend her DVD’s. I have been knitting since I was 6 yrs old (lets just say the middle of the last century), and teaching keeners how to knit, I still learn things watching these. I also own “Knitting Essentials 2“, “Sock Techniques 2″

Books: Purchased “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” but DS pinched it, so am waiting to read.

Posted a new Pattern: Sue’s Boxes with a Twist Toe-up socks on Ravelry

FO’s 2012 = 6

    I read “finess your knitting” as “fitness your knitting” at first, and was picturing some sort of craft+exercise program – if only, right?

    Interesting to read your review of the Lucy Neatby DVDs. I’ve looked at them a couple of times wondering how much I’d get out of them. I’ll have to look at them again more closely!
