Why yes, I do knit a little

The doorbell rang this afternoon. It was the tall UPS guy, with two boxes: a smaller one full of yarn I’d hand dyed–that picture will be on page 10–and the second one full of the projects in the book. Plus a few that didn’t fit in, including the green one Amazon currently shows as being on the cover. That cover got ditched when I pointed out that the pattern wasn’t in the book. Oh, oops.

So here, with a Kaffe Fassett coffee-table-style knitting book at the back for scale, is all the knitting projects of the last two years that I haven’t given away. Most of them, however, I’ve given away.

Why, yes, I do buy more yarn when I go to Stitches. Fancy that. (…My husband and the wheelchair repairman set my top speed at 8 mph. I could wipe out a whole aisle if I forget to turn the thing off while writing out a check. But it also means that baby alpaca/silk at Lisa Souza’s is going to be mine, because I can get there faster than anyone else.)

See you there!

(Edited to add: dead chair battery again. What, does it not like freezing garages? This is going to be interesting…)

Robb looked over at that picture and asked what I was buying now.

I said “No, those are all the shawls Alison’s knit for her book.”

He stared for a minute, then said, “I guess you’re not the craziest woman in the world.”

I don’t know *what* he’s talking about. 🙂

ROFL! Oh, Kristine, let’s see if I can stop laughing so hard I can’t type! Oh goodness me. Okay. Some of those are from book two, which I’ve got a good start on, some are shawls I’ve been wearing, a few need to get handed over at Stitches to various friends I only get to see there once a year, and the rest are the ones back from Martingale.

No fair — the green one is gorgeous! Is the purple one in the book?

Thank you! The purple one is in the book, the green one (I may tweak that neck edge) could be in volume two, maybe? I just got some yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts and some more from Lisa Souza that are competing to see which is next, and we’ll see what they come to be.
