Yarns and Odds

The Kona dried! It took about a day and a half to accomplish this but it really dried and now I've started on my Laminaria shawl. The yarn got loftier and softer, if that was possible, in the dyeing process. I think I'm going to love this yarn. I might even start selling it if I can bear to part with it. Here's the beginning of the shawl. You think I have a ways to go?



More knitting news: Here's the latest sock. It's beginning to look festooned. I love the word festooned. I may yet change the name of this pattern to Festooned Finery.





The diseased one and I seem to be on the mend. We sound like a chorus of hackers and sneezers. He hacks; I sneeze. We both blow our noses. Such cacophony.

Ibunny...- What are you knitting on deadline? We're all nosy.

Carolyn and Knittyvritti - I cough, I sneeze, I complain. Shawl is a bit longer now. just large enough to cover a couple of fingers. I'm always slow at lace.


Holly - Thank you!

Oooh!!! Beautiful yarn. Yes, I think you have a ways to go on the shawl.

Funny you should mention the chorus of coughing, sneezing, etc.
Last time I was sick, our parrot learned to imitated ALL of that. She sounds so pitiful when she makes those sounds.

a cold and the lace bug all at once---the one to make you feel better about the other?

Holly said...

Get better soon!

Glad to hear you are on the mend. I've been sick as well. The fog seems to have lifted off my brain finally though. The new socks are looking great!
