Talk about making a girl's
day weekend weekl! Thank you everyone for the warm wishes! I am truly having a wonderful time in my engagement thus far. Taking it Day by Day but OH lots of planning to be done!
As for my knitting, it's always a weird come down after such a huge FO. I have a few things on my needles at the moment and I just finished a Dolores Park Cowl (gotta love quick and easy knits)... and I'm starting to think cowl's don't look good on me??!!
What do you think? Please mind the photo, my photographer was busy - had to do the ol' FO in the mirror trick. (Looking at it now the cowl isn't half bad... I swore it looked not so good last night!)
I'm using the Misti Alpaca Chunky so it's more flopy than a normal wool would be but I love the softness against my skin. I do have a little ball left over so I could go back and add one to two more stitches per round to make it wider... but not sure if that helps? Perhaps I should go back and change up the pattern all together?? A feather and fan maybe?
Otherwise I'm off to go camping this week! My very first time sleeping in a tent for more than just one night. My fiance(! still a new feeling to say that), his sister and her husband have made plans to stay at Ranchero Pines near Lake George. I can see lots of fun tubing, knitting and maybe brewery hopping in the near future as well as some fireworks!
PS. Cara has started the Great Knitblog Debate on whether or not posting is slowing down or if Ravelry has something to do with it. I for one was never really a consistent knit blogger but I have no intentions of stopping my posting. I know it takes a good deal of time to produce a good well thought out and well photographed post (for me!) so of course I can see how people would opt for the quick and easy post on Ravelry. I also know that I have so many knit blogs on my bloglines that I read constantly and comment on so I know we're still here! And of course there are those knit bloggers that are evolving in their own right to do more things so that's also there too! It's an interesting thing. I'm kinda one of those that doesn't really analyze and just is, so that's all I'll say about that! :-)
Either way those folks who are always up-to-date on Ravelry, knit blogs and Flickr... how do you do it?? I just can't focus on all of it! haha! I raise my needles to you!
