fixer-upper

So, I keep thinking that I'm not really in the knitting world much anymore, but then I realize how untrue that is. I may not be devoting quite as much time to thinking about it/doing it lately, but it's still definitely a part of every day, even if just in some small way. I'm making good progress on my Lacy Baktus now, getting a kick out of the ever-shorter rows on the second half.

Meanwhile, my mom finished another Juno Regina recently and was thrilled with it until she stretched it out for blocking and noticed this:

Ack! It's just one broken yarn strand, though, so a fairly easy fix, as Vanna White'd here by nephew Zach:

Ending up with a beautiful alpaca scarf w/ beads, to be given to a friend, just because.

Anybody remember Northern Exposure? I used to get a kick out of that show, so I watched some old episodes lately. Had to smile when I saw Marilyn happily and peacefully knitting while Joel bounced off the walls of their office.


Looking forward to the Fiber Twist at Coventry Farmers' Market this weekend! Come say hi!

I love that baktus pattern. It's a great little piece.

I have not thought about that show in years! I used to love it. And leave it to you to find the knitting scene.

The stole is beautiful - the hole would have put me over the edge. Panic would have set it.
