Mehitabel and KnitDevil were crazy enough to get into a “I can knit my CPH faster than you” contest with Seattle Marie. Yes, the same speed demon Seattle Marie who made it to the semifinal round of the Knit Off ’07. They’ve been posting their progress updates, and I’ve been enjoying reading about theirs, as I plod along slowly. Lady Marie was wondering where I am on my CPH, which I will gladly show, but I am not touching that challenge gauntlet with a ten foot pole or anything else. NosirreeBob… and don’t call me Bob.
I am close to turning the second cable on both fronts, which I am knitting at the same time. KnitDevil’s Black Water Abbey yarn felted when she worked on both fronts at the same time, so I’m trying very hard to keep the yarn separate. That’s right; two Go Knit pouches, one in red and one in camo to separate the two. I got both from Scout, who does a superb job of sending them off to you quickly. So far, so good; no accidental felting yet. And I’m still not racing against the three of you crazies.
Sweetie Girl and I had a girls’ weekend in San Jose, visiting her best friend whose family moved up there a couple of months ago. No yarning was had by me, but I did have a little time to work on CPH. When I returned home, though, there was a sa-weet! package waiting for me. It was my April installment for PureKnits’ Yarntini Sock Club. And you may have read about it already on Sknitty’s blog, but I will tell you again. This stuff rocks.
A closer look at Misocrafty’s most excellent project bag. The color and fabric are perfect for the theme. I hate to say it, but the project bag is almost a little bit better constructed than my Piddleloops bag. And people, I have to say I *love* my Piddleloops bag. I love all of it, except how the fabric and interfacing have that always wrinkled look because it got smooshed in its travels to me. This Misocrafty bag, however, was folded nicely when it arrived to me, unfolded beautifully, and has kept its shape magnificently. No unsightly wrinkles.
