Today I have bits of this and pieces of that to share with you. First here's a quick update on Tower Mill Shawl.
I had some "issues" with it last night. Too many interruptions in the middle of a row created a mess. There was no way to recover except to take out a couple of rows. With just over 300 stitches on the needles it was not a quick fix.
Everything is straightened out now, and I'm back on track.
The lacy windmill motif is beginning to emerge, and I'm anxious to watch the rest unfold.
If you're in the Boston area, this weekend is the Red Line Yarn Crawl. Three yarn stores on the Red Line of the subway have teamed up for a weekend of special events, prizes and more. Check out Mind's Eye Yarns, Windsor Button and Stitch House for more details and information.
We had snow flurries yesterday, but the calendar says spring. To welcome the season I'm hosting a contest here on the blog. Leave a comment and share what's on your needles. I've been searching through patterns lately so I'm curious to see what others are knitting. The winner, chosen at random, will receive a $25 Dirty Water DyeWorks gift certificate. The contest closes on Friday, April 1, 2011.
I received these as a gift, and they've sparked a desire to knit something with beads. They are my color inspiration for the week.
