Actual Knitting Content

Try to contain your amazement.

In a few days I'm traveling to the Oregon Coast to care for my mother after she has some surgery, and I don't know how much blogging I'm going to get done. Also, when I get back, we're going to be doing some serious apartment hunting and moving, as well as Ella's wedding on the 18th, and about 50 million other things we've got going on (Bruce's book proposal has been sent out to editors and we're waiting to hear back from a publisher who might want to buy it!)

Anyway, I finished the Embassy Scarf (my Rav link) and gave it to my sister-in-law, Jen, who fell in love with it as I was knitting it. It was a fun pattern, easy to knit, and will look great with just about any yarn.

I used about a skein and a half of malabrigo lace in the noviembre colorway.


Today I started the Breezy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig. I'm pretty excited about the pattern, as it is really relaxed and lovely, and I started a KAL for it on the Hannah Fettig group I moderate (with Implausible Yarn) on Ravelry.
