The most exciting things happened!

I finished all of these gorgeous projects and won a huge shopping spree at my LYS and got invited to teach the Queen of England to knit and…

…oh wait, no. Those were all dreams. Damn.

But I may as well tell you about them, because the actual knitting going on around here is sparse and boring. I think I’ve knit all of 1 row on the shawl, and a few puny inches of sleeve, since the last time I posted. I have high hopes, though, for the coming week. We finally got a replacement dishwasher installed today after waiting for almost 2 weeks, so I should be doing more stitches and fewer dishes. And in a week, I’ll be on a plane to Boston and Maine, where there will be babysitting and FOs.

I sincerely hope so, anyway, because I’m itching to cast on for some Sidewinders. Have you seen Nona’s and Grumperina’s? That Nona is a genius! And this sock pattern is just the thing for my misbehaving StR.

  1. I am not sure about the sidewinders, it just seems strange to me knitting socks that way, but the way the yarn patterns on them is great!

  2. Hahahaha! For a second there you had me! I thought “The queen of England? How do you know her?” Haha!

  3. Ha! I’m with Cheryl. After reading most of your first sentence, I was wondering how you got hooked up with the queen (and how you won the yarn spree). I definitely want to try making sidewinders sometime, too.

  4. I’m glad you’ll be coming to Boston soon. Let’s plan a trip to some yarn stores!

  5. Yay for a new dishwasher! I think I’m going to watch a few more people make Sidewinders before I decide to give it a go.
