FLS and End of Month Update

I am making progress on my FLS. It is a slow go with 4 repeat lace across over 200 stitches each row. I am not complaining just not used to the larger project. To achieve quicker gratification I knit the wee tiny socks in the car during lunch. That gets me a finished project every couple of days.

My goal with the sweater is to finish one pattern repeat an evening. That is only four rows and I think I can commit to that while watching movies.

In my spare time this last weekend I made a couple sets of stitch markers with buttons and a charm. I am calling them Buttons with Bauble and plan to put a few sets up on Etsy by this weekend. If you are interested, please let me know if you have a particular charm and color combo, and I will make them, and put them on Etsy especially for you to purchase. They are really cute and are designed for sock knitting.

In other knitting news: I have completed one Wee Tiny Sock Swap (WTSS) and it is in the mail. I will be doing another one next week and then working on some to swap at the Sock Summit in August. They are really fun and fast to knit. I have expanded the pattern to larger needles and worsted weight to make mini stockings that I will be teaching in my Christmas in July class.

I have a secret project I am working on for my co-worker to take on her Disneyland getaway in May. If I can't go, I can live vicariously through the picture she is going to take with the secret project and a certain large-eared someone. It will be fun.

I hope everyone has lots of fun things filling their lives!

When is your Christmas in July class, Donna? Is there a schedule of your classes online? Now maybe I can come :)

I just realized that you MADE the stitch marker and the DPN holders you sent me. Wow! Just wow! Thank you again!

Wow, that is nice of your friend to commit to taking me to Disney - though I didn't think that my ears were particularly long.


Love the button stitch markers.
