Seriously I almost forgot how good it feels to be "in the knits". Glee is almost done! Just the picked up ribbing for the sleeves and V neck need to be done. Give it a little blocking and I’ll be modeling her by the weekend (I hope!) I defintiely found Glee to be a very easy knit. I love top down patterns because you can really see how the piece is going to fit while you’re making her.
This recharge of knit batteries has gotten me giggly-excited about thinking what I should cast on for next?
I’ve been tempted by so much of what I see on the internets. Have you seen this beautiful Josephine (aka Fifi)!? It’s gorgeous!! I found her through the Ravelry site. (I won’t go into it as not to get people crazy, but patience my friends cause this puppy is
GOOD ,no, phenominal. I feel rediculously privalged to be a tester. (Thanks again Cara!) But sign on up they’re working crazy hard (two people!!) on getting it ready for everyone.) Anyway, I love color she made and it has such a great fit. I remember seeing the pattern at my LYS but when you see it knit up it’s so different!
I think I might be skipping this one to the front of my "to knit next" list. It’s right there with the shawl I want to make for my Mom with the Lacey Lamb. I’m now leaning towards Eunny’s Print o’ the Wave stole. I have the pattern and it’s very close to the one in Victorian Lace Today – so we’ll see. I am hoping to gift it to her for ther birthday which is late July.
It’s also a fantastically goregous Wednesday which is just beckoning me to sit out side with an iced tea knitting my dear life away. I would do that selfishly if only I didn’t feel so guilty about not going to the gym. But it’s supposed to rain tomorrow so there’s that! 😉
