Someone is knitting

It's not me. Thank you Kim for bringing in something for me to show.
The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn but Kim is using a double strand of Rowan Felted Tweed on 5mm needles. The stitch definition is great.

Jared Flood's Guernsey Wrap-patterns in the store and on Ravelry

Kim did some rearranging yesterday and today to make room for the new Rowan. Prism Stuff is hanging. The colours are fabulous. I can't wait to see what new colours Laura will have for us at TNNA next weekend.

All Seasons Chunky is out. I have my sweater and colour picked. When I get home I will be starting. I thought about taking it with me but in my heart I know I won't be knitting a lot. It takes up a lot of luggage space as well. A few balls for a scarf is doable. Beth isn't coming on the trip but has put in a request for a few pairs of shoes. And I might find shoes. I better have room to bring them home. Buying a suitcase to get home has happened before but I try not to do that if possible. :)

Now it's time for me to knit. I haven't done any this week because I have been playing on the website. I have to get back at the shawl if it is coming with me.

Oh, I really like that wrap. I enjoy making things that have different stitches. It makes knitting so much more fun.

Right now, though, I am making a Dr. Who scarf for #2 son. Talk about boring for 16 feet! No, wait, there ARE color changes. ;)
