KNITTING GAL

May 18, 2007

Cables and more cables.....and Stitches too!




I wanted to post the progress I am making on my Reverse Cable Afghan. It is a slow process because of the cables front and back. The number of stitches on needle seems endless too. I think it looks great so far. I have to say that I rip back any bob-boo I see so that adds to the time it is taking. I want it to be especially nice as it will be in the living room. This is a close up of the cables...I think they are going well and then next is a complete view of work so far.



It doesn't look like much but that is two weeks worth of on and off knitting there! I think it will be sometime next year when I am finished.....I hope! My daughter took the pics for me and she did a great job. She is very supportive of my knitting.


Hallelujah!!! My Stitches East Convention Catalog Came today. What a four day tour de force is in stall for us in October. Classes and shows, luncheons and dinners, plus the man himself Kaffe Fassett! http://www.kaffefassett.com/ Can you believe that. He will be there on Friday night and I will have a seat down front. I am registering for my classes tonight and booking a room. Hubby said he would come too! Doesn't get better than that. I can hardly wait. When Stitches was in Atlantic City I always went to the Market...but now I am going to be brave and register for classes and do workshops. I feel so nervous I hope I will be OK. I know I should go with other knitters...but no one I know that loves knitting as much as I do can go....so hubby will have to do! I shouldn't worry, knitters are the nicest folks so I am sure I will make some new friends. If any one out there in Blog World is going let me know and we will meet up. It is October 11-14,2007 in Baltimore Convention Center. Here is the link if anyone is interested. It is a total blast. Where else will you rub elbows with some of the best designers giving classes and some of the best yarn all in one place. http://www.knittinguniverse.com/xrx/events/brochure.php Some very serious knitting gets done there!
