Too Much To Talk About

Man, after a couple of days of sorta minor stuff, I've got a lot to catch up on.

First the skirt is done and I love it! It's a pretty cotton green print with pink flowers... perfect for the fall with the Spring Forward Cardigan (and it will be lovely in the spring too...). I did cut out and start a simple plaid jumper yesterday as well.
I'm up to 64 rows done on the Shoalwater Shawl. At 75, I'll have one entire repeat done! Then only 3-1/2 more repeats to go!!!! The KAL was lovely last night as I was able to knit maybe 2 or 3 rows.

I did get a few more rounds done on the first sleeve for on the Silver Creek Gansey. I thought I was going to get it done this week, but other projects (the shawl and the sewing) have slowed it down a bit. (oh and it looks lovely with my new skirt too).

I'm still working a row or two a day on the Landscape Shawl. I need to get this done, as I really want to use the needles for the Shoalwater Shawl:

Theresa had recommended Seahorse Designs for some stitch markers. Well, I browsed her ebay store and ended up with some beautiful markers. They really are jewlery for your knitting. I'm using a set on the Shoalwater Shawl and they are really nice to use (she does a wrapping technique, so the yarn doesn't get caught on the markers at all).

Well, today is unscheduled. No lunches, no knitting social events... just me, my knitting and maybe some afternoon baseball (I have to check the schedule). Even Matt is actually going to work today. Man, I should just be too productive! (anyone willing to bet something gets cast on?)

I'll leave ya with a photo I took last night when we let the dogs out. This spider web was brilliant. It ran the span of our deck and the spider was HUGE ... not Mothra huge, but larger than I'm comfortable with. It was gone by this morning.
Happy Knitting!


  1. Pretty skirt! Extra nice that it will go well with several of your knits. You may think that spider is gone, but if I were you I wouldn't go out on the deck without a baseball bat!

  2. don't worry, Gena will protect me (she's our little killer... "Gena: drop the dead squirrel, drop it")

  3. love the skirt - really pretty. I meant to comment on your stitch holders last night, loved the butterfly.

  4. What a nice skirt! And your shawls are coming along so well. But that spider is a little creepy...Kristen is bat!
