just keep stitching, just keep stitching
i know i've been a bad knit blogger lately, but i've just been plugging along, so i haven't had a lot to update! I'm on the last chart of the Swallowtail, I finished one sweetarts sock, but it's a little tight, so I think I'm going to frog it and knit them 4 stitches bigger. Might as well make comfy socks, right?
I *did* get to finish my second monkey tonight, except for grafting the toes. Pictures of those soon! Anyway, I got to finish them up because my little brother, Jaime, had a baseball game in Crescent City today. Crescent City is about 2 hours north of here, so I got a lot of knitting in on the drive there and back, and of course during the game. I also got to check out A Perfect Yarn, Crescent City's tiny-but-wonderfully-stocked yarn shop. If you're ever heading up or down the 101, check it out! I treated myself to some wonderful yummy opal handpainted yarn, at 50%
I think that just might be a Clapotis for me! The book, as you probably know, is America Knits
by Melanie Falick, which I snagged used on Amazon for 69 cents.
Like I said, I'm just finishing up a few things, then I'm ready to get started on my Christmas knitting!
