The summer is continuing in lovely weather, and I've been a knitting fool.
Besides the Cave Point Hat Knit-Along, which I'm leading here on Ravelry, I have cast on and knit a garter baby hat, and begun a Baby Chicks dress for a little one. No. No babies in my future, but I do have a friend at church having her first. Which reminds me -- I must start that quilt...
I have had this knit in my mental queue for quite awhile. I bought the yarn when I nearby yarn store closed three years ago. I began the knit two years ago and then got distracted.
In moving a pile of UFOs back to my craft room, I came upon this again. Nothing like a bit of color work to keep me interested! I ripped back and started again, and here we are.
Yesterday, I blocked the bottom design and sewed down the hem.
It's coming along!
In my non-knitting time, I am having fun tweaking my handouts and lectures for my upcoming Minnesota teaching trip. I am so pleased to be speaking in both Duluth and Minneapolis at the Northern Lights Knitting Guild and Minneapolis Knitting Guild, and at the Sami Cultural Center of North America in Duluth. I also will be teaching at the American Swedish Institute and Ingebretsen's. It is always such a pleasure to go to Minnesota, let alone be surrounded by so many like-minded people. And, October is one of the best knitting months with its crisp weather and beautiful fall foliage. I can't wait!
