No Camera = Boring Post

My camera broke over the weekend. Sand or something got into it and it won't open. It is in the camera hospital.

But what is a post without pics??


So here is some eye candy that isn't mine.

Scroll down to find this Great Beaded Knitted bag and her free pattern.

I did finally take the shrug out of it's "Time Out" status and finished it. It still gave me some lip.

But I Prevailed!

I will block it this weekend. Maybe the camera will come home from the hospital and I can take some pictures.

Next up?

Annie Modesitt's "Twisted Float Shrug" found in the Fall 2005 Vogue Knitting Magazine.
My other sister's birthday is next week so I have to get hopping on this Christmas present. Good News! It's half done.

I am still not behind!


Bad Fay Lynn, Bad Shrug

Oh the PAIN of it all.

Why is it that a project can be humming along.

Pick up 256 stitch along the bottom and inside edges-check

Knitting in the round - check

Knit 3 garter stitch rows - checks

Drop Stitch row, wrapping 4 times on all 256 stitches - check

Begin slipping and knitting 8 wrapped stitches in reverse order - check

I completed about 5 set of 8 and then.........

The "Knit 3" row is in stockinette instead of garter stitch, I am knitting in the round now..........I should have puled two of the rows......

Take out the last 3 hours of work - check!!

I am not a happy camper right now. I am so not a happy camper.

Rockin Sock Club to the rescue. A wonderful package in the mail.

I love these colors and I love this great pattern.


Bergamo Shrug from Weekend Knitting

This Great little shrug is one of the MANY things I have on my needles right now. I will slowly add the others over the next week, or two, or three. There are a lot of things going right now.

I am using Rowan RY Cashsoft. I love love love this yarn. It is so soft and is marvelous to knit with.

I have finished the back and the sides and I am starting to pick up the stitches for the boarders. Picking up stitches is always a "more then once" proposition. It usually takes me two or three times before the right number of stitches appear on my needles.

On the left side I needed 96 stitches total. I had to do it 3 times before that happened evenly. Hopefully the other edges will go faster.

This is the first of my Christmas knitting!!
I am not behind yet!!
