Aeolian Shawl WIP

A group at my LYS is doing this as a knit-a-long. I think we're slated to finish in 2011. Lace and fully beaded. Pattern is from I'm using Jaegerspun Zephyr (Cinnabar).

OK, Next stop, Toronto (or Mississauga)

I will be in Mississauga (at the end of the YYZ runway more-or-less) Sunday evening through Friday. Anyone wanting to get together to knit or yarn-crawl in the evening, give me a shout.

i've been working on the antler scarf from the book son of stitch and bitch - and all the frustrations i've had in the past with knitting have come crashing down on my head - again.

Back In Our Respective Places

So the big trip is over. Eric Paul is safely back in Long Beach and I am land-locked in Kansas. The visit went so well, we laughed, knit, had cocktails, laughed more and cocktailed even more.

Washington DC until the 10th

Any meetups going on in DC this week? I was thinking about heading over to the Capitol Hill Stitches sometime Wednesday to peruse and fondle yarn. Any other good stores I can get to via Metro?
