My DD and I bought a new digital camera over the weekend, and so I am now able to post photos! Bear with me — we are learning how to use the thing and hopefully the quality will improve over time.
This is the finished Multicolor Rib Scarf. It is VERY long — and I think the intended recipient will love it. His 16th birthday is coming up on August 22nd.
This is a pair of Waffle Socks I also recently finished. I used Brown Sheep Wildfoote in the colorway Sunflower — very much a Kansas theme!
Weekend recap — Thoroughly Modern Millie was excellent on Friday night.
DD and I had lunch at Byblos, our favorite family owned Lebanese restaurant Saturday. We shared an order of hummus and I had a kafta sandwich while DD had kibbi nayeh. I can’t eat that, but she loves it. Did some shopping and cleaning. I went over to my LYS and left my Branching Out scarf to be blocked. One of these days I will learn to do that myself. Space is an issue with all of DD’s art stuff everywhere! I bought four skeins of a lovely alpaca boucle — two in a chocolate brown and the other two a khaki colorway for a gift scarf. I also purchased two skeins of khaki colored alapaca to pair with a chestnut brown Lang Jawoll to make a striped baby cardigan.
Sunday we went to El Paisa after church and ate tortas. Then on to the library and to take photos for my entry in the Knitty 2007 Calendar Contest. The deadline is August 15. If you are interested, check out the details at www.knitty.com
And now it is back to work for the week. My lunchtime knitting is the Devan sweater. I will try to get a photo up of my progress on it later this week.
