Another Lost Weekend

Whew, where did the weekend go? Last thing I knew, I was nice and cozy on the couch knitting away for hours watching "Bones". But, oh, what a knitting filled weekend it was!

First off, let me reveal last week's mystery knitting. It's a set of Dashing fingerless mitts from Spring '07 Knitty. They are for my pal, Zoe whose computer is in a cold room.

Project Specs
Pattern: Dashing from Knitty Spring '07
Yarn: less than one skein of undyed Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted
Needles: US 7 Crystal Palace DPNs
Project Thoughts: The Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted was so soft and wonderful to work with. Pattern was clearly written. I was able to finish both in two evenings worth of knitting. But, oh, I stink at making thumb gussets!

First Finished Fancy Silk Sock on the Sidewalk

Friday night, I cast on a Fancy Silk Sock using the J Knits sock my SP, JaynesHat, sent me. Call it a perfect combination of a beautiful, fun pattern and pretty sock yarn, but I couldn't put it down all weekend! Lace + Sock = Knitting Addiction

Saturday, I went to my first ever knitting group, the Lace Group at Stitches N Scones. I quietly observed from the outside for a few minutes, but everyone was so welcoming that before I knew it, I'd been there knitting for almost 2 hours! I definitely plan on coming back next month. :)

I do love my fingerless mits. Thank you so much.

I am going to post pics of them on blog too. I'm afraid that the beauty of the mits will be lost on the (hand)pervs who read my blog.
