I finished the knitting of the Bean's Kimono on Friday. Next it gets washed and then I'll find a couple cute buttons to finish it off.
Once I finished that I allowed myself to cast on the shawl with the Door Co. Shepherd's Festival wool and locks. I don't know what I imagined that it would look like but this isn't quite it, although it's very soft and I love the way the wool knits up. The short rows are a snap. I'm keeping going. (kinda looks like a merkin, doesn't it? this link not appropriate for the prudish)
In the Out of Sight, Out of Mind Department, I finally got around the sewing a valance for DS & DIL1's kitchen window. She wanted it flat, not ruffled, so I made a single box pleat in the middle so it doesn't look like a piece of fabric slung over a curtain rod. I am proud to say that the box pleat math did not defeat me.
Unable to have only one WIP, I cast on the next cotton anklet in Cascade Fixation the other night. I'm oddly enamored of the juxtaposition of pink and orange in this yarn. I keep wanting the colors to align. (See the cool bag and row counter necklace? My pal Skully made them for me. Isn't she talented? I think so too.)
