I've done the first part of the Mystery Beret KAL and can hardly wait for the next part.
I'm using Lorna's Laces Worsted in Black Purl and I'm also going to work one up in Dream in Color's Classy in Ruby River (I think-what do I do with all these tags?). I don't know how well the pattern will show up with the multi-colored yarn so I'm thinking the DIC might show more of the lacy details. I can't wait to see what happens.
I went to Knit Nite on Tuesday and it was so much fun I forgot to pull my camera out for a photo op. We took a break during the summer and I had thought we might not meet anymore, but we do have a lot of fun when we manage to get together so hopefully we'll get back into the swing of things. I love knitting in public with other people. It's fun to see other people stop and do a double take wondering what we're doing.
My youngest got her spacers put in yesterday on the top and bottom for the start of her braces and was fine all day, but this morning her back teeth were hurting pretty bad. I was wondering when it would hit! I know toothache kind of pain is no fun! Today I let her stay home so I have some company but she's back to the school grind tomorrow (after taking her Tylenol). I'm excited to finally be getting this going though, I can't wait until it's all over with. I wish it wouldn't take so long for braces to do their thing, but to finally get it going is a big relief.
I'm not really knitting very much lately. I have a sock that's been in limbo-land for awhile now, just the cuff on it is done, but I'm trying to finish up that Monica Ferris Needlepoint Mystery Series and I'm down to the second to the last book. I'm really enjoying these, I love how they're all so different but still center around the needlework arts. Two Thumbs Up!
