Now that my passionate fling with Montego is over, I’m turning back to the projects I left by the wayside.
beaded Cami: After knitting a few rows of this on the subway this morning, I remember how much I love this bright teal. I’ve knit this up to my ribcage now, two more completely boring and arudous inches and I’ll begin the task of emulating an empire waist from the top down. Yikes. Kelly, look out for an email of utter confusion.
Saartje booties: Finished! Just waiting to be blocked, buttoned and bundled.
Moderne Mason-Dixon: I’m beginning to think I’m never going to finish this, after knitting 6 color logs the garter stitch is getting to me. I’m bored out of my freakin skull. This is worse than math class@!
and now for whats new..
Tuscany by Amy Singer
I received my latest order from knitpicks on Friday! I ripped open the box anxious to pet my yarns when lo and behold- a shocking pink stared back at me. Orchid? This is what shine sport-orchid really looks like? Wow. I must have been half asleep when I chose that color. There is no way in hell I’m going to wear a tuscany shawl in that awful color. I’m sending it back tomorrow and getting three more skeins of Gloss in Burgundy to match the single skein I originally picked up for Eunny’s Endpapers.
Finished Counterpane Clutch by Girlwhoknits
Also in that box, were two hanks for a sleek black and possbily beaded Counterpane Clutch
from Handknit Holidays. I’ve been in want of dark evening/clubbing wristlet for some time and this one is just the ticket. I like this image
for the strap possibilities.
I almost like the big lalana version more, but lack patience.
And last but not least, I can be seen knitting Montego in a skate video. Blader Session #13 to be exact. One of these days we’ll have Kevin, our PR manager to guest blog about how origins of TeamKnit!, its officers and our amazing sponsorships. Yep, we’re sponsored- but not in the way you think. Which reminds me, Jules – We need to do that photoshoot for Issac asap!
*edit jen’s: I’ve been spotted already! Got a random email from some dude with the link.
Someone go watch the video for me and tell me it’s not as bad as i think it is because I haven’t see it yet!!! freaking out over nothing right?
