The first trimester of 2008 has nearly gone by without a post. I’ve been busy doing many things. Taking quilting classes and starting new knitting projects which I will share as the weeks go by.
One of the most relevant things so far, was starting out the year attending a Nancy Crow workshop organized by my friend Rosario Casanovas. As always it was a really intense week stretching creative limits, but as important is the fact that I got to share a week long with my friend Inmaculada doing something we both love. I’ve yet to finish the projects I started, but I am hoping I will soon find time to do it. I’ve posted photos in my Flickr page with some of the work done in this workshop.
I’ve several things going. I finished my first pair of socks and went on to knit a second pair for G. (First one ended up being small). I also signed-up for this year’s Socks that Rock, and have started on the first installment. The color is something I wouldn’t particularly pick out myself, but I like it nonetheless. Package number 2 should be on its way now, so I might just have to let it sit while I try and get these done.
This is the picture taken from BarcelonaKnits‘ last Monday´s post. I arrived to the Stitch ‘n Bitch BK with that much done, and left having undone all of it. Talking and knitting sometimes don’t go together, and I skipped about 4 rows. When I realized it, it was hard to go back to where I had gone wrong, and I ended up just unraveling it. I might just change the needle size too. My Lantern Moon’s Sox Stixs broke, and I had to change to longer Clover Bamboo DPNs. Thin and long, are perhaps just too much right now.
I’m using Knitpick needles and the yarn is Helen’s Lace from Lorna’s Laces that I bought last December at All You Need is Love. I am aiming to finish this so that I can take it along to Chicago in a couple of weeks. We’ll see….. I’m flying to Tenerife for Easter weekend to translate at a Jinny Beyer workshop, but I will bring it along. Might have to switch to bamboo circulars if I want to knit on the plane, though!
Well, I´m off for now….. La versión en castellano del post….. queda pendiente…
´Till next time….
