There are lots of fun knitterly activities in the near future, both IRL and online.
Have you ever misplaced a needle, only to find it in the laundry a few days later?
I’ve been busy! I finished the Flamingo socks and mailed them off, sans mutant Zebras. The person who will receive the Zebras has already returned to the Cities, so I will gift these separately. Pictures are forthcoming.

During the past few weeks, I’ve been participating in Sock Wars 2006. It’s a tourney or assassin-style knitalong where each socknitter is assigned a target. We’re given a weapon (the International Socks of Doom pattern) and must try to complete and mail off our target’s socks before being killed ourselves. It’s been fun, even if [...]
Diamond Lace (aka Cropped Cardigan) is now past the halfway mark with the completion of the front panels. To celebrate, we went scouting around for unlikely models for the last Amazing Lace challenge.

Aren’t you glad I didn’t show you inch-by-inch progress on this piece for the Cropped Cardi?
