Open House Knitting

Tofutsies Socks... this knit two at a time thing rocks! I can't believe I was so late to that party.

The second half of Clementine. I really want to get this finished so I can work on the pink lace shawl. I need to get this stuff out of the way so I can continue on my quest to de-stash. There comes a point when you really just have to stop buying more and use what you have.

I think my next project, after I finish these, is going to be this:
Berroco® Free Pattern Michaela
Remember this? I started it 4 times and gave up. I have the yarn and I LOVE this pattern. Since I have done some more lace knitting since I tried this, I might have better luck with it now. I am "getting" lace knitting a little more and I didn't know about lifelines back then. That would make all the difference. I think I got eight inches into this one time and had to rip it all out because I got lost in the pattern.

I did lots of knitting while sitting at Open Houses yesterday. I'd rather be selling houses but that usually doesn't happen from an Open House. But, having said that, the first house I ever sold was the result of an Open House. It was also the last one I ever sold as a result of an open house and I've been doing this for 10 years so what does that tell you? And I do LOTS of Open Houses. Generally speaking, they just make the seller happy... they don't sell houses. But enough about real estate!

We watched Colin for a little while on Saturday. We stuffed him full of food that had little to no nutritional value and took him to Barnes and Noble for a new book. The kid loves books. He is walking now.. short distances. He doesn't have the nerve yet to really just take off so he just goes from point A to point B and grabs on to something and then looks up at you waiting for you to make a big deal over it. He's such a cutie.

I dropped off the Bishop's scarf yesterday. I think the woman who asked me for it liked it. One thing about that Homespun yarn... it looks and feels better as a finished product than it does while you're knitting it. It's very soft. I think it would feel wonderful around your neck. But please don't ever make me knit with it again!

Wow its great to see you knitting. Love the socks, and great to see the progress on the scarves! I agree with the Lion brand homespun yarns, yucky to knit! I really think they should change that name- it makes real Home Spun or Hand Spun look bad.
Oh Colin is a sweetie!
Hope to see you soon!
