SHHHHHH! don' t tell the fiber trash girls.........but i just couldn't stand it- i HAD to cast on a new project. the junkie needed her fix! but i chose an adorable "QUICK" to knit cowl so i wouldn't add to my towering pile of ufo's that are taking over(see past posts). yes, i finished it in record breaking time! it's called the lacy gaiter by kathy north. the cowl is knitted from noro-silk garden sock. i haven't blocked it yet.
P.S. i am still frantically knitting away on my tappan zee cardigan-i almost lost my mind for a second and turned it into a bolero because i had decided as a reward for finishing the cardigan i could start a new major project-the brown eyed susan shawl from that awesome of all awesome books-juju's loops. see previous post. i even have some shibui yarn ready and waiting in the wings: a luscious merino silk blend. another shhhhhhhhh! i'm suppose to be on MAJOR fiber restriction but i saw it at my local yarn store-meadow farm yarn studio- and it literally jumped off the shelf and into my arms- what can i say? was that a sign or what????
