Some Topic Choices and an Update!

So I wanted to start with an update on the progress of my current project!

After Frogging (realizing I had overly confused the YO) I am now ahead of schedule.

If it wasn't for my Knitting Fairy Godmother (and Apple's Facetime) I have no idea where I would be, I am thinking of changing her nickname to Knitting Superwoman? -Let me know what you think?

As an aside I blocked my first project this weekend... Because this has a lacy garter stitch edge I realized I would need some practice blocking. I used the "wet blocking method"  but many of the ladies in my "Knit Night" group use the "steam blocking method"- What is your favorite and why? (I will particularly need advice on the project above.

Which is called sugared-violets by Rose Beck. I think it is a lovely pattern and Kyle thinks it is one of the most youthful looking of all the shawl pattern I considered!

Now to the some topics portion:

I have a couple of topics that I have been thinking about blogging about and would love your input on what the next blog topic should be:

1. Storage: Stash, Current Projects and Finished Projects!
2. Knitting Groups: The one I attend, topics we discuss and how to find one in your area
3. LYS: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

In the spirit of the current primaries "Lets take a vote!" Let me know in the comments what you want the next topic to be!


  1. Looking very nice! Topic for blog -- Willpower , how to resist buying yarn!!

  2. I'd like to see your opinion on "LYS: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" but that might just be my bitterness showing. :-)
