knitty fall 07

I started browsing the Fall 07 Knitty this morning, and I think I found a couple of projects that I really want to knit. I love the hat pattern Foliage which I think would look great knit out of some hand dyed Manos del Uruguay, one of the almost solid colors. Second, I've been looking for a throw pattern for my grandma, she wants me to make her an afghan so I'm thinking about knitting Totally Autumn, out of Comfort by Berroco. We'll see how tired I am of reading charts when I'm done with Christmas knitting!

New Pathways for Sock Knitters

I finally got my copy of New Pathways for Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi! It came in Tuesday but I've had bronchitis and I'm so thankful that Gourmet Yarn held my copy all week until I could get up there today to pick it up! I also swapped out my addi lace needles for some regular addis because they were tarnishing. I can't get wait to really delve into this book!

Fred and George socks, fair, and Mr. Darcy

I completed one sock from Rosemary's Fred and George pattern and I love it! Also, tonight my family and I went to the state fair and found out that my Swallowtail Shawl made first place! It was so exciting seeing my knitting on display! Today in my Women and Gender Roles in Modern Europe class we discussed Pride and Prejudice, one of my favorite books. It makes me want to watch the latest movie and go all googly eyed girly about Mr. Darcy. I definitely have my girlish moments.
