I volunteered for The Guild at Shepherd's Harvest yesterday. It was fun to see all the pretties, and talk with people about the awesomeness of knitting. I did not purchase yarn but I did purchase a couple of things. Tools, bags and gifts are not part of the yarn diet. Because I said so and I make the rules :)
This bag came with a gift purchase. I will keep the bag because I don't have enough bags...
All three of my African violets are in bloom. I don't believe this has ever happened before. The two pinks are actually very different pinks, even though it doesn't look like it in the photo.
I decided to full this shawl because it was growing into an unmanageable size. It turned out really nice.
The mink stole has officially been started. Now all I have to figure out is how she means to make two out of three stitches. I'm feeling like I should put it away because I'm sure it's simple but I can't figure it out at the moment.
I finished the socks that inspired me to learn the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. I have a second pair over halfway done with both FLK heels complete. I'm really glad I learned the technique because I always hated seeing beautiful patterning ruined with pooling at heel time. Problem solved.
The blankie is coming along nicely, and Chelsea gave me a ton of yarn. There should be leftover leftovers which, if no one else is making a leftover sock yarn blanket when I finish, Girl-Child will be happy to have, I'm sure.
I also volunteered at the downtown library today, as I normally do on Sundays. There was a problem patron who became violent and was taken out of the building in handcuffs. I'm glad I don't work in a public library :(
