Craft After Dark


Most of my knitting time lately has been consumed by Clapotis. I get maybe an hour or two a week to work on her, so it's slow going. Here she is so far, in Spirit Trail Fiberworks silk/merino on #8's:

Four dropped stitches, 787983792739487398 to go:

I found a boo-boo on her, desperately trying to figure out what it is:

Next up: something, as yet to be determined, made of the luscious Manos that I scored Saturday:

Yup, you're innocent alright. You've also got me wanting to try lace, after seeing how gorgeous Nikki's shawl is.

Did you decide not to do a Cozy? A koigu Cozy, perhaps? ;)

Hey, lace is much easier if start with something that's not lace weight. You should see the doily one of my stitch n bitch friends knit as her first (?) lace project. On 0s! ZER-OHs! Actually, you can see it on her blog.

Oh god, I faint just looking at that.

I still want to do a Cozy, but I'm thinking that I want a triangular shawl first now.

So many projects, so little time. Tell me to get the boys' Christmas stockings started so that they might be done by... Christmas.

I want my next shawl to be one with shoulder shaping, I think. Or perhaps, more simply, one like this. We'll see. :)

Good plan. I have a pile of yarn for christmas gifts that I should start knitting so that I'm not frantically knitting on Christmas Eve again!
