We had a little soireé to celebrate the book's publication on saturday and good times were had by all. Unfortunately, I used Jill's camera to take pictures and don't have any of my own.
I do, however, have a picture of the River Rapids Sock I finished while I was there:
I'm using Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in a color called African Grey. I really like what the orange zig zag is doing. It makes my day! I did a different heel than the sock pattern requested. I used the heel from that leaf sock pattern in the Spring Interweave Knits.
I'm also coming along quite well with Icarus
Though I think I'm going to take a break on it for a while so I can get going with this other sock and so I can get something knitted for my friend's baby! The shower is sometime in October, so I would seriously need to get a move on with regards to that project. But it'll be way cute when it's done.
I've found it hard to discuss knitting when I don't have any problems with what I'm knitting. There's just that one issue with the sweater that I hope will be alright soon, and that's about it. My friend did send me a link to this though: Knit Converse sneekers. However interesting, I'm not sure I want to knit them. I think I'm going to try to knit a shawl out of the Brooks Farm I got last year at Rhinebeck. Ravi, who I keep meeting at The Point but don't have her blog address if she has one, knit the Summer Shawlette staff pattern from the Summer IK. It's so adorable, that I was thinking it would work well with that yarn which is so unbelieveably soft.
