Birthday: Knitting Pretties

My knitting pretties!

For my birthday this week, I got a few knitting pretties! First, I got a gift card & I purchased 2-at-a-Time Socks by Melissa Morgan Oakes. Because of my “Short Attention Span Theater” (also known as ADD), I’ve never been much of a sock knitter, but I do enjoy them, and knitting two at once is a stroke of genius for ADDers like me! I’m looking forward to checking out her companion tome, Toe-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks.

While waiting for the amazing Gunilla to fix me up at my Knit Doctor appointment at GPY, I got to schmooze with one of my very favorite people, and spent my birthday discount on Nature’s Wrapture. Soooooo many little pretties to knit!! I rarely knit for myself (and the one thing actually for me on the needles, I left at the kids’ homeschool choir class! Only a few more days until I get it back!)

My Double Crossing Diamonds Aran* is back on track (thanks, Doc!), and we think the book screwed up, not I, with the Jewel-Tone Wrap*, so much knitting awaits!

Clapotis

I resisted for a very, very, very long time, but finally succumbed and made one. I scrapped the one I had started for my mom, and thankfully a friend hipped me to the Clapotis Excel Spreadshet. It made it easy peasy! And this was the result: the clapotis for a very special someone to me, who is leaving the state to marry her soulmate 🙂
