One FO and Status Quo

Nothing on the job front for Mr. Larj yet. I am hoping that he'll find something soon. The only good part is that my yarn stash is enormous and I don't have to worry about going on a yarn diet.. ...yet.

My sister Gus has been in town all week and she and I hit the knit shops. We went to Ewe-nique in Royal Oak and Neighborhood Knits in Dearborn. She compulsively knits purses for felting. I am trying to convince her that she needs her own Etsy shop to sell the bags that she makes. It's either that or she buys a bigger house to fit them all in!

On my knitting front I started and finished the Moebius cowl in the span of a weekend. It's a really quick knit and I love the way it fits. I think I may need several. Blocking it was pretty weird on account of the twist, next time I think I would just loosely block it by hand shaping it rather than trying to pin it.

I'm going to pour a glass of wine watch my season 2 Nip Tuck DVD's that I borrowed from my pal Mike and try to knit on my sock that I started yesterday. Not sure of the pattern for the yarn. If I don't like it....off to the frog pond.

Everyone have a great weekend...

That is a lovely cowl! I am knitting socks I hate at the moment. I think it makes me knit faster to get them off the needles! They are a Christmas gift.

The Moebius cowl is very pretty! What yarn did you use?

As always, fabulous knit cowl. I love the shape. Maybe after I finish my Christmas knitting I'll make myself one.

Missed you at HYAW last night. Hope to see you Tuesday. I have the day off, so I'll be in the area most of the day.

The cowl is really pretty! Love the colour too. What kind of sock are ya knitting? I've got several ideas for some new ones but seem to have discovered an abandoned object behind my sofa so it's tie to work on that first. I hate having UFo's around.

The cowl is lovely - yeah, I would have trouble wrapping my head around the blocking as well :)

Fingers crossed for the Mr. that he'll find a job soon - all the very best to him!
And yummy, your Moebius cowl turned out so beautifully! I totally love the pattern - you know what a sucker for lace I am! - and what an adorable color! Totally cowl!

Ooooooo, that's so pretty, I love it! What kind of yarn did you use?

Nora said...

Gorgeous colour! I love how you've draped it around like that. I've been thinking about lilac/grey lately - very hard to find though.
