Turkey, WIP's & FO's, Oh My!

I can't believe how long it has been since my last post. I have been sick this past couple of weeks. I did make it to Turkey dinner on Thanksgiving.

I cast on the Secret of the Stole: Jaggerspun Zephyr in the Teal colorway with matching beads.

I also cast on FAWKES: I'm using Garnstudios Fabel

I have also cast on the Tilted Duster from Interweave Knits Fall issue. I'm using Cascade 220 Superwash in a brown colorway. I don't have a photo of the WIP yet. But will post one soon.


Miss Dashwood from and Country Cotton Baby Socks

I finally finished the Mystery Stole #3......What do you all think. This was my first attempt at lace work and now I'm hooked.

Here is what I received from Helga Finch-Fetchley, my Hogwarts Sock Swap 2 partner. All the way from Heidelburg Germany. Beautiful socks from Nancy Bush, knit with Lorna's Lace...yummy! Also some scrumptous yarn "The Knittery" from Australia.

Lastly, I wanted to make a comment about a new yarn store here in Seattle that a few of us went to visit for the first time. Bad Woman Yarns. The yarns were nice, the prices okay, the customer service "CRAPPY". With the amount of options us knitter's have here in Seattle, I would think that the customer service would be impeccable. Especially, for a new business. It will be a very long time before I visit this store again. Leave me a comment and let me know what your experience has been, if you have ever been there.

On that note, until next time "Knit On!"
