Like so much else lately, the announcement that the long running series Law and Order was being cancelled was quite abrupt. Considering last night’s series finale; the familiar sound of Law & Order makes a good theme for this post.
This is my last week of working at the shop. Right now it sort of feels like I’m a kid getting ready to start summer vacation, but I have to keep reminding myself that my job is done (Done!). I will really miss everyone that I met and helped with their knitting along the way. I had such fun working in the shop, learning about yarns, fibers and such, and especially teaching. I will continue doing private lessons on a limited basis. That’s a little scary and I’m not quite organized about it yet, but I’ll get there.
I also have some FO’s.
Remember the Skew socks, they are done…
Pattern: Skew, Knitty Winter 2009, (Lana Holden)
Yarn: Down Home sock by Knitivity; Aint Gail colorway
Size 1 needles / /Magic Loop
A very strange concept in sock knitting and they actually don’t fit badly, but they are really some weird looking socks.
Also, the Blue on Blue socks are done…
Pattern: My basic sock recipe
Yarn: Claudia Handpainted in Deep Blue and Antique Jeans colorways
Size 1 dpn
I started knitting these for the sock class I taught in April (not realizing it would be my last) I’ve been using them for my back-up on the go knitting and finished these Monday morning.
Also, I have been sort of between projects and was in a real funk last week so I needed a quick and fun project… this little guy filled the bill. I give you Claude the Crab.
So if you are ever in a giant funk and need a little knitting pick-me-up; I give the pattern two claws up.
Pattern: Most Dangerous Crab, Knitty Summer 2009 (Amber Allison)
Yarn: Patons Classic in Bright red and Aran
Size 7 dpn
I’ve got a couple of other things on the needles and one project I’m getting ready to swatch that will make someone very happy.
That’s it for me today, I guess you could say that I’m done… done.
