Thank you so much Anne. You are an angel and I'm glad we are friends :)
I knitted another beanie out of Shinano #12 for a coworker because he was complaining about how knitted beanies never fit him (He's 28 but has a really small head) so I hope he likes it. The first one I made was from Kureyon #128 for one of my managers, but he gave it to his 18-month daughter instead because he says he "never wears hats".
Karen is entrusting me with her precious Coach "Jamie" frames, to be made into ultrasexy sunglasses - I finished cutting the lenses and shipped them out today to be coated so we should see the 100% finished product in a few days. That's the part of my job I love, the hands-on stuff.
I knitted 4 inches of my first sock - out of yarn that Rothane sent me along with teeny, tiny sz 2 Brittany birch DPNs --- then frogged it because I miscounted the K1P1 rounds about 2inches in and didn't catch it, so it looked like there was a jagged edge that was spiraling from where the stitch marker was placed to the top edge.
Is it really true that you aren't considered an accomplished knitter if you don't make a sock?
I also joined the Yahoo CLapotis Knitalong group, but I dunno how much I'll be able to get into this project right now. I really, truly want one, but I can barely finish my damn beanies LOL so we shall see. Lorna's Laces Sport in Sherbet is the front runner for this badboy, so hopefully I can find a good deal :)
Funny that you didn't know about the Manly Cable scarf pattern, I didn't know anyone else knew about it! I just posted the free pattern on my blog, and next thing I know it's listed on pattern central! woot!
