Knitting Knitting, Who's Got the Knitting?

Yeah, I've actually been knitting! Main work has been on the Opal Tiger socks. I decided that these will be a Mother's Day present, so I better get cracking!

Love these stripes!

Much more lace inspiration lies within!

Since the most recent Knitpicks catalog has been sent, I've been enamored with the Feather and Fan Shawl. I scoured over all the local bookstore and vendor at the fiber fest trying to get my hands on a copy of "A Gathering of Lace". Being the impatient yet cheapskate person that I am, I ordered a copy from Overstock. And waited...and waited...and waited. Finally, it arrived on my doorstep last night, and I've been drooling over the lace projects since. Can't wait to cast on!

Oooh! I need to get that book. My SP sent me Victorian Lace Today which I spent last night drooling over.

Speaking of which, your package is so close to ready. But I have today off and I will be getting it out today. No, really.

And it has been really fun shopping for you! :)

Is your yarn harder to use after you've drooled all over it? I would think it would get crusty, like an old dog toy.

"Honey, why does your new shawl stick straight out in the back?"

VLT has absolutely GORGEOUS projects, doesn't it? I've been told to not bring it to family gatherings lest I have tons of knitting requestes from family. :)

Only drooling over the book, no drool on the yarn. :)
