Up Market (updated!)
Last night I finished the armwarmers. They feel very soft and were just the thing to keep me toasty at the market today. Our knitting group has a stall. I dutifully worked on Sharfik while there so I feel no guilt about coming home and starting something new! It's Topi in some varigated Te Awa that's been lurking in the stash for months trying to lure me away from other things. The deep purples in it aren't showing in the photo, it's not really denim like that.
The market was like Paddington station and everyone seemed be there at some point. Ms Darkside kept me company and worked on a mitten. Cindy came by to chat and model her Moebius scarf with it's cool untwistable twist. She assured us it was very easy but despite hearing the explanation several times I still feel I would need diagrams. Many, many diagrams. Sharon was also there in the afternoon as we finally got some sunshine and dethawed somewhat. She was knitting a funky pink sock and sold a pair too. Score!
I am thinking about making a few things for the next one. A month should be long enough, even for me, to get something simple finished. Perhaps mittens or a hottie cover? Sandra D has suggested baby socks with my leftover opal.
Ash has been an unholy terror since I got home but has finally settled down into his favourite spot to watch me blog.
