Not today as Boing is getting a good soak in some hot water and Eucalan. Later this afternoon I will block her so that hopefully I can take some pictures tomorrow when the sun comes back out....featuring my favorite shy model again.
The picture above is another one of Anne's patterns, Tesserae, done in some Harmony sock yarn in a colorway that was another nameless one until today. Every time I looked at it, I could only think of the yummy frozen Chocolate Chambord drink we used to make years ago at a restaurant I used to work at. YUM....
Those who know me well, know that this doesn't usually happen so soon after the first sock is completed.....however, this is such a neat pattern!
It's 2 groups of 6 rows each so it is easy to finish a repeat quickly and very easy to find where you left off without dragging the pattern around. When I want mindless knitting or a glass of wine, I work on the sock :-).
Now that "Boing!" is finished, I am moving on to the next little nothing. I really enjoy knitting these little scarves as they are easy to complete and fun to wear tucked into a sweater this time of year. Simple lace stitch patterns perfect for those new to lace.
Yesterday I met Terry for an afternoon of shopping and lunch. Of course meeting in a fabric store in Portsmouth that has some of the best selection of fabric crammed into a very small space was the perfect reason to purchase something a bit more challenging for me in the sewing department. Now that I feel like I have finally caught my breath, I am going to sit back down to the sewing machine again. :-)
As a footnote....thank you all so much for your camera suggestions! Even though the Canon seemed to be the larger favorite, I am pretty sure I am going to get the Nikon. After reading the online reviews and speaking with some diehard camera buffs, even the Canon folks were impressed with this new Nikon. So now I have to save a few more pennies, but it will be worth it :-).
