Progress!

Do you right front, take thee, left front, to be joined in holy stitch-lock, until death do you part? I do. SKB Joined! Ahh....we're knitting in the round now! I'da kept on keepin' on last night, but then I got to where it said "switch to yarn B..." and I have no yarn B. I have all just Denim Silk. I've toyed with several options. 1) No beads, no sparkles, no nothing. 2) Shiny or sparkly carry-along thread 3) Stitch on seed-beads strategically after. 4) Find beads and string them on the Denim Silk Gah. I dunno. I think I'm going to go without, and see what it looks like when it's done. I want to wear this to work, so no sparkle would be more appropriate. In sock news: Anastasia Sock Start3 I'm not that far along, but it's coming. I love how the Cherry Tree Hill is knitting up, and it so soft and buttery smooth to work with. And this pattern is so easy to follow. It's the Anastasia sock from Pepperknits. Lacey Shrug Start And, no, I haven't finished seaming the camisole yet, but I at least started it's matching shrug. Lemme tell ya, this pattern is a mess. I swear whoever wrote the pattern was on crack. [(*do shit*)do some other shit, repeat from *to *] repeat that shit a couple more times. Gah. And Tvini can attest to that. She had to help me decipher it. Crazy. Speaking of Tvini, she finally shows up early to knit-night at Books-A-Million, and see what happens?

I concur. Pattern writer stoned. I was expecting it to suddenly read, "You ever look at your needles? I mean, REALLY look at them? Whoa."

Your bodice is going to be stunning - the colour is fantastic. I vote for no sparkles if you want to use it for work.

I'm glad to hear you like the CTH. I have some in my stash, but haven't used it yet.

That sock is looking gorgeous! I'm going to have to add that pattern to my "To Knit" pile.
