Sample Knitting

So, what was I working on Wednesday morning that I couldn't post for?  Well, a local yarn shop had put out a call for sample knitters a few weeks ago. I was able to respond within about 5 minutes of them posting it and got an in to doing some sample knitting for them! I'll reveal what shop it is when I'm all done with the piece.

I showed you the yarn already.

It's gorgeous and I love it. It's Forbidden Woolery's Pride Lace in Deathly Hallows. I'm making Sachiko Uemura's Jeweled Cowl. So far, it's going very smoothly and quickly. I've been lucky enough to be able to work on it at my day job during downtime.

So, that's what I'm working on for the time being. While I was waiting for the yarn to arrive, I did make a pair of socks!

It's been a while since I had made a pair of socks, and I had never made a pair for myself. I started them on last Thursday, and finished them this Tuesday. It's the fastest I've ever made a sock, let alone a pair of them! I used the Magic Loop method which was another first for me on socks. If you remember, that's how I decided to do the sleeves on my Driftwood Sweater.  

So, yeah! It has been a good knitting week.
