Knitting in my sleep again ...

But I did have time to go to a workshop at my LYS, Seed Stitch Fine Yarn this past Saturday. It was a workshop with knitting designer Stephen West. Learned a lot ... in fact I look pretty darn serious in the pictures I'm caught in taken by photographer Sean Riley. [thanks for sending the pictures to me, Sean].

I can't imagine why I'm so serious looking tho.
Must have been hanging on to every word you think?

I did learn a lot from Stephen. And he inspired me to knit more of his shawl patterns. In fact the whole group seemed to be pretty interested in what Stephen had to say. I would call that a pretty successful workshop.

YES, I finished a design by him also. Called the Colonnade Shawl. It's for my Mom for next Christmas ... if I can resist keeping it for myself that is.


I'm pleased that I got it done since I had to frog the lace THREE [3] times before I got it correct. Whew!


But I love it and it's now put me in the mood to start another design by Stephen ...


Are you familiar with the Boneyard Shawl? It's a free download on Ravelry. Well this is just flying off my needles and I'm in love with this one too. Especially now that I've finished another gift from 60 Quick Knits from Cascade ...


Leaf-Lace Gauntlets by Jacqueline van Dillen. Only I call 'em Spring-Pink Gauntlets. The yarn is once again Cascade's Superwash Paints left over from another 60 Quick Knits. I can't let any good yarn go to waste now can I?

Have I got enough time in the day to cast on another from 60 Quick Knits? How many has that been so far??

Mmmmmm, I better get some sleep now ...
I'll let you know later.
