We had a great finishing party at Eva's house last Saturday afternoon. Marjorie brought her Big Wool project to finish while I brought all my samplers to assemble. And, oh, those squares are heavy. It was my first time at Eva's house and it's like going to a knitting library. She has a great collection of knitting books of every kind and I haven't even got to the yarn part. Happy time passes just too quickly. So I didn't managed to get a lot done. Go take a peek at the pictures at Eva’s blog.
The cable-y sweater (design 11) from Rebecca 26 caught my eyes and Eva magically whipped out two bags of the GGH Davos yarn that's called for in off-white and blue and insisted that I take the off-white. The yarn is very cuddly and I can't wait to start knitting this. She's also bought some cute Hello Kitty and My Sweet Melody buttons for my daughters and a purse snap from Japan. Thanks a lot, Eva, you are so generous!
I continued a bit with the assembling yesterday afternoon and am very pleased that they are finally coming together after over a year of knitting. Here are all my blocks laid out on the floor.
I could only manage this while the two girls took their nap. See, three empty gaps and I thought I had only two more squares to go. Is my memory failing me or what? Thank goodness I took notes for this project and I quickly identified the missing square as the 'Knit-Twist Lattice'. Got to go and locate it and knit on the last two squares.
