In fact, I also made the big woolly blanket.
And half a sock!
And, yeah, that cotton top... I switched patterns and started something completely different. I know that most summers, the idea of wearing a knitted anything is just not appealing. The fabric is too heavy, even in cotton, and that Anna Sui top is kind of dense. And there was a small question of fit... I'm not really the snug-fitting kind of girl.
So, now I am barrelling along on this.
Acres of mesh stitch.
Which reminds me of what's going on at the Stash Basket. We are trying the "lose weight = win goodies" trick. Everyone puts something yarny or crafty in the metaphorical pot, and then for each pound you lose by sometime around the end of the year, you get a raffle ticket to win something! Tempting, right? Well, I still have very few tickets. And today is weighing day, and we had friends over for dinner last night... Next week for sure!
Back to knitting! In August (ack, already!?) I will continue to work on the acres of mesh. And that's all I'm going to promise. The new VK is due out soon, and there are a million great-looking hats. I also want to make a Trilobite. We shall see. We have a week at a cottage at the very end of August, and I bet I'll get more sock knitting done then.
Gawd, and then it will be September!
