Imagine my surprise and delight when I read the morning newspaper a couple of days ago and saw my blog mentioned in an article about knitting! Thanks, Karin! Later that day they called me from the local radio station and asked me if wanted to come and talk about knitting on Monday morning. Guess what I answered!
"Jaws" is resting while I think about different sleeve ideas, so I've excavated the "Red Dragonflies" sweater from my UFO pile. I'm afraid it may be slightly out of proportion (the sleeves too wide for the body) but I won't know for sure until I block it. I may have to knit some kind of side gussets to add to the width.
Last but not least, a couple of gifts! I recently knitted a shawl with handspun silk yarn fellow knitter Marguerite in France was kind enough to send me. Here it is on a tea towel fellow knitter James in New Zealand sent me. Thank you both! I'm going to give the shawl to a friend's daughter, but the towel is mine.
