I’ve been busy at the weekend finishing my Hunger Games Cowl and now it is blocking and blocking and blocking… With four strands of yarn it just needs an enormous amount of time to dry. I also already started to write the pattern down. As I realised I find describing what to do very difficult I made a chart. I think this works better. Also I already found three test knitters. If someone else wants to test knit, leave a comment or send me an email. And then I also finished the lace socklets, painted my nails several times (I’m preparing posts for a 31 Days Nail Challenge in August). Todays nails are for the Polka Dot Challenge with khaki pastell dots on turquoise nails. And I’m reading “Pride & Prejudice” on my iPad (which’s screen looks weirdly cloudy on my photo, no idea why).
For next week I want to show you all those hibernating projects I have and of course work on them again. Yes, I thought I might finally finish one of them before I start something new. What a pity that they are all long time projects that’ll need more than a week to finish… Joining of course Ginny’s Yarn along I would like to know: what have you been reading and knitting this week?
Because everything about you and your blog is SO LOVELY, I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award!! http://allnightknitter.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/one-lovely-blog-award/

*JUMPING AND CLAPPING AND MAKING EMBARRASSING GIRLY NOISES!!!!!*
I’m not that girly girly but with that project I’m grinning the whole time too. The blocked cowl is nearly dry and I will finish my second modell this weekend. Only this time I’ll block it first before sewing together and attaching the collar.
I’m not normally that girly myself, but with this I just can’t seem to help it!
Hope you like the test knit. 🙂 I just blocked the two parts of my test knit in my lunch break and maybe I will get some pictures of the finished, blocked and finally dry first one up tonight.
I just saw it in my email, cannot wait!!
Love the cowl!
Have a wonderful week.
Thank you. You too!
Cowl looks awesome!
Thanks! Hope it finally dries completely today.
I have too many projects on the go right now to test knit the Hunger Games Cowl, but I will be the first in line to buy the pattern when it is ready. I love the Hunger Games books, but I just want it because it is a HOT piece of knitwear. Thanks for doing all the work to make it happen.
Wow, thank you!
cute socks! looks like a lot of work is going on at your end! 🙂
Thank you! They were actually not much work at all. But I admire how much sewing you did for the blanket. Amazing! I always try to avoid sewing knitwear where possible.
