Knitters Anonymous

My father told me I should join "NA." Confused, I asked why. "Because you clearly have a knitting problem!" Those sneaky silent Ks!

I'm back!

I haven't used the knitting blog in ages, but Ravelry has inspired me to do so!

This weekend is Rhinebeck! I can't wait! I haven't missed one since the 2nd grade. Well, ok, mom and I used to go for the rocks and minerals, not so much the wool... but still.

I have gone through my project books and decided what I'd like to make for loved ones and myself, and I'm allowing myself one splurge, under $20, for sock yarn. I mean, come on! It's SOCK yarn!

I still have to go through my stash to see what I have and what I haven't made from last year's show.

I did finish: the SnB Nation Fairly Easy Faire Isle, though I need to get buttons from Moveable Mud, and the red cardigan from Interweave Knits. Not too shabby.

Look at my lace!

Wooo hoo! Here is a shot of my lace and progress.

Picked up some beautiful merino for a gift I need to finish up this week! And some pretty bright orange wool that I think I want to mix in with the yellow from Anne and the lavander I got in Pougkeepsie for a fun bright sweater...

Oh the Soleil...

I fell in love with's Soleil, ordered the pretty yellow yarn, and started casting on 160 stitches...

I had to frog THREE times!! My first experience with lace wasn't going well. I joined the Soleil Knitalong, and now, I officially have finished the lace and am starting to decrease for the curvy fit! Woo hoo!

Here it is, on my lap, at Bomber's, where, during Trivia Night, this week, I completed the 24th row!

And we even won the best round ever, the free margarita round... but it was on the rocks, in little plastic cups instead of the big margarita glass...

The Manos was worth the money...

Yes, Manos del Uruguay is ridiculously expensive.

But, really, I love this sweater. So much.

No, I haven't been wearing it out yet, but it may snow Monday night (awesome! driving home in the middle of the night, tired and cranky,in the snow!) Anyway, I've finally let my beautiful red sweater dry, and took pictures.

And open...

It's a sweater day.

Suddenly cold again, it's time for sweaters!

I finished the baby sweater! Woo hoo! Now I just have to wait for the little one to pop out.

I really like the colors, which should look great if the baby has Kyle's coloring.

Then I finally added button's to my Curry Cabled Cardigan

Woo hoo! It's cold enough to wear!

Baby Sweater Progress!

I almost finished the baby sweater! Here's Joe holding it at Lark Tavern, before dinner came!

A few more stitches to cast off, some sleeves to sew up... and then we wait until July for the little Bamblzer to pop out! Yay!

In the meantime, I've started's Soleil and even found a knit-along blog group, at I've finished the first round of lace, with only two froggings so far! Woo hoo!

We hit the city...

In an attempt to go to Freddy's open knitting night, Anne and I went to NYC Sunday/Monday.

We had brunch in Soho and scored free mimosas.

And we went to Purl Soho and didn't buy a thing. Sad, sad, sad.

We did buy ridiculous amounts of clothes at Century 21 instead, and then hung out in Brooklyn with Tom and Ed...

(at the restaurant from Garden State)

...who informed us it would be a really annoying trip to get to south Brooklyn from Williamsburg. So we didnt go, and instead drank Long Island beer at a bar with a sand floor.

We knit on the train home.
