Last week, I spent the week cleaning, in preparation of my little guy's birthday party on Sat. The party was wonderful. Everyone had a good time. There were 4 pounds of chicken cutlets, a huge tin of baked ziti, and brownies...all made by yours truly. All the kids went home with Halloween tins of treats as goody bags:
The birthday boy (he's FIVE now!!) eating cake with a fake smile:
And the second the guests left on Sat., guess who cast on for a new project? Yes, that would be me. I am making the Eyelet Cable Raglan from Adrienne Vittadini's Fall 2004 book, and I'm using Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk in shade 9. It's going quite quickly...I'm hoping it's just because I'm using a larger size needle than I normally use (a US 7) and not that I'm that speedy. I finished the back last night:
If the rest goes this quickly, I may wear it to Rhinebeck next Sat.
Next up: The Scarf Cowl from Knit Picks. I have one hank of Shimmer that I am hoping will make gauge. I can't see why not though...both Shimmer and Shadow, the yarn used, are laceweight.
