Today’s This Week’s Knitting News

No progress on Grace. I have completed the Anny Blatt scarf and a second lacey, mohair scarf. Lately I have read more about knitting than I have accomplished. I anticipate a more normal schedule in the next month. A trip to Atlanta, Georgia the week of Halloween will afford me a great deal of knitting time and visits to new LYSs!

I picked up Better Homes and Gardens premier issue of Simply Creative Crochet. Since my crochet goal is granny-squares, the “Hip to be Square” article on granny-square basics grabbed my attention. It is neat to see life on the other side… has been my respite from 60-hour workweeks. I picked up Alexis Xenakis’ The Knitting Experience: Book 2: The Purl Stitch and Vicki Square’s excellent Folk Bags: 30 Knitting Patterns and Tales from Around the World. These are awesome bags. On the way for next week (a reason not to quit my job) are Celebrity Scarves by Abra Edelman and Jean Frost Jackets: Fabric, Fit and Finish for Today’s Knits. Great prices and free shipping. Forgot how easy it is to click and shop.

The winter Anthropologie mail-order magazine came in the mail. It is a great source of inspirational knitwear – I save my copies. Now I want a capelet having seen the two they feature (look below). I already have two ponchos, one silky for warm weather and one thick, blankety one for cold weather, or I would be tempted to join a poncho knit-along. (As if I have time to knit.) A capelet seems more manageable and much funkier.

Here is my sweetie, Mick on his throne looking down at us mere mortals.
