Check it out, I'm a tiny bit famous! (The photos are what's important here.) I'm taking my fifteen minutes about twelve seconds at a time.
Let's see, what else have I got? I made my chart holder thing.
Here it is, modeling slightly more than half of the first sock of the first pair of the Sock Knitter's Pentathlon. (My first toe-up sock!) How did I make the chart keeper? I took one magnetic sheet, one stiff plastic placemat, 6 magnetic strips, and one roll of contact paper, and combined them. Ta-da! Then I cleaned up the craftermath and got knitting. (Get it? Craftermath? It's the aftermath... of crafting... I'll shut up now.) It's more flexible than I'd like, but plans are in place for fixing that.
Oh, I finally took a picture of my Primavera sock.
And here's my latest round dishcloth.
I out-clevered myself on this a little, and ended up with about 6 extra stitches. I had been planning to frog, but have since decided to fudge it. It's a dishcloth--it doesn't need to be perfect. I like the colors.
And finally, my yarny goodness arrived today.
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, in Lakeview and Purple Iris. Mmm, yarn!
I'm really looking forward to the yarn swap tonight! I'll be sure to post pictures of the haul. Assuming the other people don't just laugh at my huge stash of cotton--I wouldn't blame them a bit!
