Well, I've been in school, friends. I know it's been a week. Truthfully, though, I wasn't really inspired to write last week. I'm in the last 5 weeks of school and it's getting pretty intense. If only I could stop procrastinating! Through it all, however, I have found time to knit. Here is what I've done:
Some socks for a very good friend of mine. She requested them and I had some yarn I didn't like for me but thought would be perfect for her. She said she wanted colorful, so I'm giving it to her. The yarn was bought last November while I was in Toronto, Canada visiting a friend. I think it was Regia, but don't quote me on that one.
These are very Fetching, if I don't say so myself. Again, these are going to a friend of mine (not the one that wanted the socks, though). She asked me for them back in September when it was still warm in Michigan. I finally got around to them last week. The yarn is Cascade 220 and the pattern is quick, easy, and fun. I have to say that this is the perfect last minute gift. It took me I'd say literally 4 hours to complete the pair. Instant gratification at it's finest.
The CPH is coming along pretty fast. I've completed the two fronts and one sleeve and I'm working on the second sleeve. I'm loving the yarn and the results of my knitting. I do have a question though, when should I block the pieces? Many of the stitches are still on DPNs and I'm not sure if I want to submerge my needles in water? Should I just knit the whole thing, sew it all up, then block the finished garment or should I block before I sew? I need some advice, people!
