Congrats to Heather!

Heather's book hits shelves on National Talk Like a Pirate Day!!

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:

River Rapids Sock

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.

Oh are you really and truly and finally going to use that Rhinebeck treasure from last year? What about the Mohair??????

we shant discuss the mohair...but i just got a ton more mohair, so it might become the background/border of a lap blanket?

Yep, those Converse are... unusual! Glad to hear your knitting is going smoothly, even if it means less blogging fodder.

So cool! Question, was the yarn (for the sock) all those colors? or did you combine from different spools?
