Only the Shadow Knows

I ended up ordering Shadow in the Lost Lake Heather and Vinyard Heather. You can see pictures of it at http://www.knitpicks.com/Shadow_YD5420127.html While I was there, I also got some Alpaca Cloud in the Midnight Heather. Now I have enough yarn to complete three stoles. I even have matching beads for all of them, very rockstar. While I was at Knitpicks, I ordered a set of their new wooden circulars. I'm not planning on using them for lace (I have some Addi Lace Turbos for that), instead I ordered 2 pairs in the "true" size 2. I wanted another option for knitting socks. Speaking of socks, I made some great progress on my Hogwarts socks and am hoping to finish them up this week. Also this week, I'm teaching two classes. Tuesday night, I have the second session of the beginner sock class and on Saturday, I have a beginner lace class. In the lace class, we're doing a simple lace bag. My shop model of it will be finished up tomorrow, so I'll show you some pics then.

BTW: There's still time to sign up for the Secret of the Stole. I really think it's going to be awesome. You just need to join the yahoo group. It's at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/secretofthestole/ OR If you want more details you should check out http://www.islandzephyr.com/blogs/nauticalknitter/ Both are very cool sites. There's also a Ravelry support group for all those who ravel. Kathy and Beck, you should totally join. (Enable, enable, enable)

Thanks for the mention. I am as excited as everyone else for this KAL to get going. 26 days and counting!!! I can hardly stand it.

I'm knitting up the yarn you gave me at the advanced sock class. I've been listening to HP #7 while I finished up my lace top socks from class and started this pair. Snape WAS GOOD!! Anyway, now I'm in HP withdrawal but I've still got my sock yarn stash.

Sorry I'll have to miss the lace class Saturday. I'm helping with communications for the big 100 mile bike race.
