Oh for knits sake!
The blanket is very near done and I couldn't be happier. However there was a small glitch this weekend which really hindered my progress... Uhh yeah, the cable broke on one of my needles mid-knit! Of course this decides to happen while I'm away at my friends lake house (perfect knitting venue) so now I'm sitting there scrambling to put the stitches back on the cord and tie it shut so they don't slip off again. I even tried my most favorite of products, Krazy Glue, but that didn't work either. Sadness. The only saving grace is that I had a second cable at home so things should be good from here on out (fingers crossed).
I know, it's hard to get an idea of what it's going to look like (should have taken a picture when I was switching the cables out) but I think it's gonna be a new favorite of mine. I'm not sure what to work on next, but I'm inspired by large items so I may start a sweater. Of course after this weekend I got orders from all the girls for Fetchings, Pantas and pulse warmers so a sweater might have to wait. Oh and a funny hat. And a scarf. They're going to turn me into a one woman sweat-shop! (not that I mind in the least)
Lastly, in knitting news, I had to give away the Monkeys to my size 5&1/2 footed friend because I apparently felted them in the wash and they have no more give to get them over the heel. I mean, technically I got into them, but if you break a sweat putting on socks it's time to release them into the wild. I guess that means I'll just have to make another pair one of these days.
