Aha! I found a cowl pattern! Good old Weekend Knitting!

I knew there was a lace cowl I was interested in trying from Weekend Knitting, but I didn't realize it actually CALLED for Rowan Kidsilk Haze. I think it's a sign... ha... well I took it as a sign and casted on for it last night. It's the pattern "Fluffy lace camisole and pull-off cowl" I'm just doing the cowl part. This will be my first big lace project. I can already tell I love the fabric that results from using kidsilk haze, but oh lordy! Somehow I feel knitting with this yarn is tedious. It's the smallest yarn I have ever knit with (my first laceweight i guess), and with all its lovely gorgeous fuzz, I sometimes find it hard to see my stitches. I worry that this weekend project is going to go on forever! But I think once I get the hang of knitting with this yarn, it will all go smoothly!

In other news, Yarn Harlot randomly drew a winner for the yarn I donated to Knitters without Borders! It's going to Beth E. and it was sent out in the mail today! I hope she enjoys it!

Abigail asked for more info about the Fry Along. It's a knit along hosted by Stacey (Sheep In the City). It just started so you can always join up if you're interested in the fun... awww... who wouldn't be interested in the FUN... I mean you gotta be some kind of fun HATER not to be interested in the FUN...

hmphf... y'all got away with a picture free post. I don't expect you'll be so lucky next time :)

OK, I keep looking at the yarn that you spin and the stitch markers that you make, dang you're talented girl! I LOVE the gummy bear stitch markers...I need, need, need some! Do you have any more, or where did you get the bears in the first place? Any info, or any price (well...I guess I shouldn't say any price) would be much appreciated!! I love candy...and I love knitting, so they are the perfect combination!

That Fry Up is quite entertaining, but I think I'll stick to knitting play food for my son. :)

Stacey, thanks so much for the compliment! I left you a comment on your blog regarding the gummi bears.

Abigail, have you checked out this toy knitting book? You could knit Niel some cute toys.

Vidardottir, thanks for the tag!

But have yet to knit anything from it, of course.
