    Ok, so I have not really decided to give up knitting. I also will never take up plastic canvas as an medium for my creative endeavors. April fool! You found me out. I really did not think anyone would buy that…but surprisingly, some of my real-life friends did! Too funny. Actually, I have two new projects on the needles, as well as a project I finished a week ago that only wants a sunny day to be photographed.

    The above project is my latest WIP: Miralda’s Triangular Shawl [ravelry]from Knitted Lace of Estonia.  This shawl is interesting in it’s construction.  It begins with the long v-shaped bottom edge and ends at the top center, so each row is progressively shorter than the previous one.  This is a nice change from the traditional grow-as-you-go method of knitting a triangular shawl.  I’ve chosen to use Lacy Lamb, a springy 3-ply cobweb weight merino, and it is lovely to work with.  The rusty orange color is a nice bright spot in my very gray and rainy day.

    I also recieved my very own copy of Sock Innovation yesteday!  Woo-hoo!  My husband preordered the book for me back in January as a birthday gift, and I have been looking forward to its arrival ever since.  Last night I promptly cast on my April socks using some lovely Yarn Chef minestrone from my stash.

    And for those who missed it…here’s what yesterday’s blog looked like:

    I am not exactly the pink-and-kitten type, for those who did not spot the incongruency immediately.  Nor am I the plastic canvas type (no offense intended for those who enjoy making tissue covers and such).  My real blog makeover is making it’s debut today with a springy new look!

  • I’m so glad the plastic canvas was an April’s fool. I thought I knew you, but seeing that earlier post made me feel like I didn’t. I seriously shuttered when I saw the basket. (no offense to others who enjoy this craft).

  • I thought it was an April Fool’s joke, but I didn’t want to say anything in case you were serious. LOL

    Those socks are super cool! I want that book!

  • Too funny – glad it was an April Fool’s joke!

    Gorgeoous shawl – love the color you picked. This shawl is on my list so I’m looking forward to seeing how you progress.
