Still stitching

I'm still working away on both the cross-stitch and my Irtfa'a--I swear I'll get updated pictures of the latter sometime soon. Maybe after this weekend--I'm headed to the Midwest for a wedding, and the cross-stitch isn't very portable, so Irtfa'a will be my traveling companion. (And no, it's not the wedding for which the cross-stitch is intended, thank heavens. That's not for a few more weeks. It's just wedding season, I guess!)

Meanwhile, I've been making progress on a few other things. This is the latest scarf for the Red Scarf Project KAL:The yarn is Cascade Venezia Worsted (70/30 merino/silk) in colorways 101 (white) and 104. Venezia is one of my favorite yarns--I designed the Manly Scarf out of it, and it's wonderful to work with. The pattern is my own--it's the Fleck Stitch from Knit and Purl. I like the look, and it's simple to knit.

I've also started another pair of Mindless Socks, once again in my beloved Regia Silk. This is the last I have(/cry), so I'm making the most of it.


That's all for the moment--stay tuned for book reviews and Malabrigo pictures. (Now you're intrigued, eh?)

Correct me if I am wrong, but that scarf looks like it is on a circular needle...

You are correct--my size five straights were otherwise occupied when I started it, I think. I have the Knit Picks changeable circs, which I do use a fair amount despite my preference for straights. I use them particularly for lace knitting.

Mary needs to update. The zombies are getting restless and are out for blood, or yarn as the case may be...

I know, I know, I'm sorry! I've just been very, very busy. But I swear I'll have content soon.
