My latest knitting pleasure has been this lacy baktus...knitted from 100% silk it is an absolute dreeeeam to knit and feel. Mmmmmm. I spent quite a while just squishing it before deciding its fate. It is the most expensive skein of yarn I have ever bought by a loooong way, but sooo worth it. The only time I've taken it off was to try this:
And of course, it looks so much better on her than me. Shawls tied this way make me think of larkrise to candleford, which is my only weakness. I am definitely going to knit another bigger one of these someday, so that I can wear it the same way. Probably not from silk though, unless I get me a sugar daddy. Am trying very hard not to buy this orange skein, because I'm not really an orange person. If you are, you should get it.
Also, I have been on a sock drive. Here's the latest pair.
You're going to have to excuse my awful phone pictures until I can get me a digital camera. I do have one but its no better than the phone!
Soon I will do a post about all the socks I've knitted since xmas. I'm addicted.
