TWIK: On the Needles

My Noro from this yarn haul begged me to turn it into this Garter & Lace Wrap.  I think the richness and the sheen of the Noro yarn will pack an even bigger punch with this project.  It’s simple enough, but I can already envision the F.O.  I’m hoping to finish it by my birthday (Oct 8th) so I can rock the “honest to goodness” hell out of it for the Fall.  😛  In addition to the greatness that this shawl/wrap will become, it’ll also give me an opportunity to block a lace project for the first time.

In addition to that project, I’ve finally found a pattern I want to do for my former supervisor (two other ones have hit the bricks hard already 😛 ).  This is another lace project — simple enough for my skill level but interesting enough for me not to become bored (like I so frequently become 😳 )  I’m going even give up some of my Knitpicks merino yarn for this project so she can have a lasting gift.  😛  All this lace … I hope I’m not becoming a lace addict.  😀  But on second thought … there are worse things to be addicted to right?  😀

She and I are meeting up for dinner sometime around the first week in October.  I’ll have it finished before then and packaged nicely for her.

Annnnd … I’m going to swatch my first afghan sometime this week.

This is going to be a busy week in knit and after not being able to do much anything this weekend, I look forward to getting some projects started.  But the only thing is … errrrrr … 😳 … only one of these projects are on my Knitology: Year of Projects list.  😳

    That afghan looks delicious! Can’t wait to see the swatches. Autumn is a great time to start an afghan – as it grows, the weather gets cooler and you get more and more blanket to keep you warm while you work!

    Also, so glad you were ok during the hurricane! I was away while it hit and didn’t have any internet access, so it’s great to hear that everyone got through it safe and ok x

      I know right!!! It’s kinda ambitious of me to try and make this but the pattern seems doable and I can’t wait to dig in. 😀

      Thanks re the hurricane. I’m glad everyone made it safe and sound also, despite the crazy flooding, trees down and all that business.
