What to say

Its very difficult to post about things when you are working on a bunch of gifts. So pardon some of the generalities, I just don't want to give anything away. My biggest project that is on the needles right now, and if you want to see it and are on Ravelry, there is a pic there, is rocking right along and I don't have any real concerns about making the dealine. In fact, I hope to be done early and get to get a headstart on my next super big project. I also just made my friend a birthday present and I am about to finish my cousin's graduation present, but I can't post pictures of those until after they've been gifted. The graduation present was really a last minute whim, but it has knit up quickly and looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself.

In other news, I have been exploring all of my WIPs that are sitting around at various stages of (un)doneness. My Candle Flame Shawl I started last summer, the Kat's Pretty Pink Dress, also started then, etc. My last trip to Cali had me finishing up some things, most notably that second sock to complete my first pair of my very own. That sense of accomplishment as well as fondling lots of lovely sock yarn recently has renewed my interest in tiny stitches and the things we can make with them. And while I seriously enjoy the tiny little dpns, a conversation with a lovely knitter at Loops recently has given me renewed interest in exploring the magic loop method, so I believe I will do my next pair of socks that way. I have a pair of nice long addi turbos in a size 1 all ready and waiting.

I have also recently been giving serious consideration as to what, if anything, I might want to knit to enter in the fair this year. I know its not until september, but to do anything of any major coolness I will need to decide and start soon.

Oh, and I bought more yarn. Four skeins of that pretty brown and blue malabrigo at Loops. I haven't figured out what to do with it yet, but it was talking to me and I had a giftcard burning a hole in my pocket.
