Blocking - a mystic experience

Well this is the first piece that I've ever blocked and let me tell you it was frightening. This is the Prarie Shawl form Folk Shawls done in Cascade 220 (no color name on the label) #8 needles.

Intarsia and Other Ramblings

Tomorrow's Friday and that's my new favorite day. There's a *great* knitting circle up in Kent, CT at "Enchanting Yarns and Things". They've recently expanded and it's all just so delectable.

Argyle socks and Intarsia

I'm working on my first pair of Argyle socks. I've done a bit of intarsia in the past, but not much. I'm more into texture and less into color. Mostly because color just scares the crap out of me.
