Random Stuff

I would just like to thank all of you for your nice comments on Butterfly. Hopefully I will have some time to find a slip this week and I can model it for ya. I almost went to look today during my lunch hour, but I didn't think I'd be able to trek all the way downtown, find the perfect slip and be back in an hour. I can't wait til it gets warm and I find a slip so I can wear it! It's calling to me!

This weekend I met up with two of my old high school buddies from South Jersey:


Sara (left) had only knitted a garter stitch scarf before and Robin (middle) was a newbie. I gave both some lessons and they were off and loving it! They have been my best students so far. The above picture was taken at the end of our session. Robin had a nice, even "flag" of garter stitch and Sara learned how to purl. Since we don't see each other too often, we are going to try to keep one weekend a month to meetup and knit. I hope we can keep our promise!

Hot Lava is coming along well. The sleeves are finished and the body is about 1/2 way there. I'd post a pic, but it isn't too exciting right now. It just looks like a big purple blob with arms - but in a good way!

I've decided to join Lolly's Project Spectrum and Sew? I Knit! I think Project Spectrum could give me a little shot of inspiration I've been needing so desperately lately. I also came across Sew? I knit! tonight. It is a gathering of knitters who want to start or get back into sewing. I've been wanting to dust off my sewing machine for a few months now, and there is nothing like group motivation! I haven't sewn anything since my sophomore year of college, right before my knitwear specialization kicked in. I just hope I have enough time to devote to both of these projects! Plus the Knitting Olympics are coming up - I need to start training! So many interesting things to do, so little time!

Thanks for the sew-along link - I think I may join!

Wow! we knit bloggers must be on the same brain wave-length or something because I've been thinking about dusting off my machine lately, too! I didn't know about the sew-along. I will have to check that out...

Every time I hear you say you need to start training for the Knitting Olympics, I envision you running on a track while knitting, needles a'clicking and Kidsilk Haze a'blowin' in the wind. Or doing sit-ups while counting stitches on a row.

How fun to reconnect with old friends and share the knitting craft! :) Great pic!

These projects are going to be a blast - I am planning to combine the two (Spectrum and the sew-along) for maximum craftiness! Super Power!
