All hail blogless Elaine, who tells the tale of a UFO that’s celebrating its silver anniversary! Pictures and words are coming to me soon of her sweater-in-pieces. For her quarter century of angst she wins a Wisconsin yarny prize package and the chance to hijack this blog and tell her story at a date in the near future. Congratulations Elaine!
Thanks to everyone who owned up about their UFOs! (Some of you made mine feel very young… on the other hand, I haven’t been knitting much more than two years, and did you notice my oldest UFO was about a year and a half? Shhh!)
Ah…..it was a pretty good weekend for knitting. Mr. Beth sent me off to Knit Night at the Sow’s Ear, where Dale-Harriet and I once again nearly had to be kicked out of the place. She thinks we may have been neighbors in 1780, and I suspect she’s right. There’s no other way to account for it. I met up briefly with cowgirlpurl and got friended by lotuscat as soon as I ordered my sandwich. (Ain’t Ravelry grand when it intersects with Real Life?)
I got to chug away on Luke’s stocking and found out I really love two-color Fair Isle. I have since finished the heel flap on that one. In other knitting work, I’ve done my nightly repeats on the Irish Hiking Scarf and have now finished 39 repeats. That second skein is going down quickly. Now Mr. Beth wants a matching sweater! 🙂
What else have I been working on? Oh yes, the Secret Knitting Project for which I will need to dye some yarn this week. And I just got to 51% of the Red Scarf, so I’ll have to update its progress in my Ravelry notebook. I set up a quilt frame (all the parts I still have, anyway, thank you Jack) so I can finish up some of those UFOs. But that’s a whole freaking different post.
And yes, yes, I will have to do something about the picture situation on this blog. I totally agree with you.
