No knitting tonight

First of all, thanks for all your comments about the sweater and cardigan I knitted for Nicolas Ottersten's graduation show! Sooner or later I'm certain I will get more photos to show details of them, but I'm equally certain he is too busy for that right now.

I've knitted yet another "Haruni" shawl, this time with Drops lace (a blend of alpaca and silk) and in a different shape: it consists of three triangles instead of two.

There won't be any time for knitting tonight, but there's no need to feel sorry for me ;-)

I'm going to an 18th century party with live music and a lot of dancing! I've attended a course this spring learning (trying to learn) some dances from that period. Keep your fingers crossed I won't mix them (or my feet) up! My favourite is Mr Beveridge's Maggot, seen here in a clip from Emma.

How very elegant—both the shawl and the dance!

Your shawl is magnificent!
The dance will be fun I'm sure!
The video makes me feel like to watch all the Masterpiece again!

The lace is beautiful! It appears that you and I are switching our knitting styles; you are doing lace and I am doing colour work.

What's are your needles now?

ANOTHER historic night? I am envious!!

I hope you had a great time. Thanks for sharing your stories online - It's nice to hear about them even if I can't attend these amazing parties!!
