Mystery Project Done

Pictures of my latest FO can be found on Ravelry here. (Sorry, the link is only for Rav members).

I'll be able to post pictures of it next week.

Bruce's sweater is still green, and still in stockinette and 3x2 ribbing. I'm not complaining. I just had to set it aside to work on the secret project before I had to give it to its recipient.

In actual knitting news, I recently acquired a copy of Knitting Rules! by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, who is also known as Yarn Harlot.



Yes, the book is funny. Yes, it has lots of excellent knitting advice. Yes, unfortunately, it is making me desperate to knit another pair of socks. Which I shall be doing while I am knitting on Bruce's sweater. I'm thinking of using some of the Socks that Rock yarn I got in Oregon and knitting some plain vanilla ones.

  1. Plain vanilla socks? Is this a subliminal shrimping hint? Not until you finish my sweater, young lady!

  2. Vanilla socks sounds great! :-) And your secret FO - me like too.
    Awwww - I finished the sleeves on my Still Light tunic - tried it on - and it was MUCH too big... Body is now frogged, and I have lots of stockinette to do - all over again :-( But I love knitting again after a break for many months :-) HappySunday!

  3. The recipient of your mystery project is going to be blown away. It is absolutely gorgeous!

    I always have a pair of vanilla socks on the needles. It's a little bit of comfort! And I can't knit them fast enough to meet demand!
