So much has been happening the past couple of days! Reorganizing after any knitting conference is always a huge undertaking, and we still have boxes of yarn sitting around waiting to be unpacked. Also, after getting another newsletter out, we are officially down to our last spot in the Sock Club. I have to admit, I began to wonder if we’d ever sell all 200 spots – but we almost have, and what a relief it is!
Well, mostly. We’ve been having some problems with USPS not delivering the September kits and the like. But, for the vast majority of our Club members, things have been moving along relatively smoothly.
Moving on. Patrick dropped by today to say “Hi” and to show off his super-hot, completely Rockstar, cardigan. The pattern is Oak from Rowan’s The Organic Cotton Collection, and the yarn is Cotton Purelife in Quebracho & Cuba. Personally, I think the FO is goigeous:
He admitted that, technically, it wasn’t truly a Finished Object as he had yet to find & sew on snaps. I still think it counts, since he could wear it. Am I right?
Next, we have a shop sample Patrick made for us, modelled by Enid: the Zenith Carpet Bag from Bag Style:
Knit with 3 skeins of ShibuiKnits Merino Alpaca. One minor alteration to the pattern: we decided to put the second set of smaller handles on the inside of the bag, for a more attractive look.
And, finally, a photo from the Skif CO Party on Tuesday night. I don’t want to hear or see any comments about how we may look, since some people I won’t name actually refused to be pictured at all. Cowards.
It was quite a lot of fun – wine, cheese and knitting, what else could one want? – and I think very successful. Quite pleasant all around.
