A finished Bob

I feel like I'm neglecting this poor blog. But I've been knitting up a storm. Here is Bob, completed after only 2 weeks! I surprise me.

My latest project is Charlotte's Web. I bought all the Koigu for it on Friday, and the pattern is 5 different colors, and a total of 154 rows. I'm on row 87 and a few rows away from adding color number 4. Can we say addict? After I wound the first skein into a ball, I knew I was in love with Koigu KPPPM already. Being this far into the shawl after only 3 days is proof. I'm not a shawl person, but I may end up making one for myself. This one is for my mom for Xmas. Here is a work in progress:

My Victoria tank has been shoved so far into the basket I don't even want to talk about it. I started a pair of socks today while waiting to go horseback riding with hubby (my first time on a horse!). They're for a childhood friend of mine.

Ok, time to hit the hay...I'm beat tonight.

You look really hot in that orange sweater. Keep up the good work.

karen, I'm addicted to Koigu also.

My friend Kyra is working on her second Charlotte...she's got tips on her blog if you run into trouble.

Great job on the sweater! 2 weeks?! That's amazing.

I love Bob! I am inspired! Can you give the details of the yarn -- or did you do that previously? I'll check back. Thanks.

Charlotte knits up that fast?!? I may have to switch to that pattern...How easy is it?

Wow, you have been a busy little knitter! I can't believe you're flying through Charlotte like that. Just looking at it scares me away! I don't believe I'd have the patience, but sure love the end result! Nice job on "Bob" also!
