No Really - Crochet Me :)

Finished up the Boteh Scarf (from Interweave Crochet). This was a fun project - and another great use for sock yarn :). I worked it in Seacoast Panda from stash.
Have just about finished the 2nd "Porthole Rib" variation and was inspired to cast on "Friggin' In The Riggin'" - 3rd and final in my Pirate sock series, I'm looking forward to having them finished.

Always running more than 1 project - I couldn't resist casting on one of my dkKnits skeins. It was calling me, I swear! I'm improvising a crochet scarf with it - something that is a little more dressy, to suit the merino / tencel blend, and it is wonderful to work with.
And I finally cast on my Sockamania "Simply Cables" in some stashed GypsyKnits. The 3-ply "Sock It" is so soft, lovely for socks.

Another One Off The Needles

So, test knit is finished - I think they're a "Go". These were a joy to knit, Claudia Handpaints from The Loopy Ewe, is such squishy, bouncy wool - love it!

The crochet scarf is finished, and I'm eyeing another Interweave pattern for my next crochet scarf, now that I'm feeling more confident.

Got some luscious yarn this week but will need to do an "ETA" with the pictures. One of my packages went to visit Canada Customs - Canada Customs, you suck! Can I just ask - what kind of an ar*ehole uses an exacto knife to open a squishy packet labelled "Yarn"! You'll have to see the photos to appreciate the heart attack I had.

And I broke down and bought a swift, I'm going to try it out tonight. Can't believe I've gone this long without one!

Tomorrow night's The Def Leppard / Styx / REO Speedwagon concert was postponed - there may be anarchy in the streets of Ottawa!
