A quick update
This week hasn't been quite as knitting intensive as last week. I've been really tired and most of my spare time has been spent on assembling my new spinning wheel. At this point I just need to put the brake cord and the band on and then it's ready to go. I can't wait but didn't want to do this bit when I was feeling tired. I had trouble posting pictures on Blogger last week so the Feza Premier sideways scarf is a little late in making an appearance on my blog - although it has been looking stunning on the One Skein Blog ! I absolutely loved working with this yarn. It was my July skein from my One Skein Secret Pal and I am so pleased to have been introduced to it. There is definitely more of it in my knitting future. This month's copy of Simply Knitting has a hat pattern using a single skein of Feza which looks pretty good. I couldn't resist buying a couple of balls of Rowan Tapestry and am considering making more leg warmers with it. The ball of Symphony is probably going to be a cheap version of the One Skein Cravat. I am actually having difficulty in deciding what to do next as there are so many projects on my list. The Sweetpea Cardigan was coming along great until it came to sewing up time. I discovered that I had lost my gauge and made the sleeves too small to fit in the armholes - they will have to be frogged and crocheted again with a larger hook. How annoying.
