A Quiet Night

We’re having a quiet night here.  The cats are all exhausted from chasing yarn.  My Mom is visiting from California.  It’s perfect.

To get caught up, I need to show you a few things.  First off, the ten week plan is going so well (8 lbs and 3" of the Giotto tank in the first three weeks) that I decided to cast on another project to avoid finishing the tank too soon.  After a trip to my local yarn store, Knit Nouveau, I decided to snag their idea and knit up a skein of Sea Silk my wonderful friend gave me for Christmas, using a feather and fan lace pattern.  This is two stitches on either side for a garter border and two repeats in the middle.

Lace never looks particularly good on the needles, but I think this is going to be fabulous when it’s done!

I’m working on two round robin books right now.  The first is Lorena’s Lutrador book on animal totems.

Very cool book, with a wonderful prompt.

Finally, a quick look at my yard sale score from last weekend.

The woodcut book offers endless ideas and inspiration. I love old lace, so the doilies are sure to find a little niche for themselves.

All in all, it’s been a very good week!  I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend and a wonderful 4th of July to those in the US.
