Wednesday Update

We were away for the weekend so I feel like it has been ages since I posted last. I didn't get a lot of knitting done while we were gone. I'm working on a certain present that I don't want to reveal because someone may know who it is for blah blah blah. Not very exciting for you, sorry.

So, I have gotten a little work done on my new sock. I'm giving up on the other toe-up, but since I didn't have the heart to frog it yet I just started the new sock with the 2nd ball of yarn. The recap on this sock is as follows...
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Grays Corner using the instructions from Sensational Knitted Socks for toe-up socks on 5 needles with a 5 stitch beaded rib pattern. I love this yarn. Mmmmm, Lorna's Laces.....

Next up we have the continued work with Eris. I have just turned a corner with her -- literally! I just completed the first "corner" of the front. I lengthened her a couple inches (I always find things too short waisted), but now I'm afraid she might be a little long! Well, I won't really know until she's finished and blocked....just have the other cabled corner, the hem, two sleeves with cabled cuffs, and the zipper (gulp!) to go:) Where the heck do I get a zipper? Hmmmmmmm.

So my super fabulous Secret Pal sent me an e-postcard today of a shark! Yea! Sharks! Thanks -- it brightened the rainy day:)

Great progress on Eris and your LL sock. You are flying by on Eris, lemme tell ya.

As for zippers, I know there's http://www.zipperstop.com

There was one other site that was recently mentioned on Knitty or some magazine for cool zippers. I can't remember it for the life of me!

That Eris is so amazing looking. Bring it to group okay? When you bought a beverage at Borders, I thought later, that I really should. Its the least I can do for them letting us cackle there. I am a frequenter of that store, however. I know my check register has mucho entries to that very store....

Post a pic of your beautiful baby sweater. Its so little boy. perfect.
