Violence of the Lambs!!

That's the tag line from the movie Black Sheep? It's such a very funny New Zealand horror (comedy) about some sheep gone mad, mad I say! So funny.

Anyhoo, it has been 6 weeks since my last blog. I don't know. I haven't been inspired to say much lately, so tonight I decided that if I tried to blog about something, maybe I'd take a few pictures and post some of my newly finished projects. I finished the Columbia Beret - so dang cute - and some matching mittens from Opionated Knitter and a short little neck gaiter from Exercise Before Knitter- more details to follow. Color is a beautiful purply maroon.

And I have knit and unknit and reknit Francis Revisited in Cascade 220. I looked on Ravelry and saw others using 220, but I hated the gauge on a size 10. So, I took it apart and reknit on size 8s. Since it is knit from the top down, it is completely rescalable (don't think that's a word) and it is turning out quite nice.

I haven't finished the sea mineral mittens yet.

And I got a huge gift certificate from Knit Picks from my mom and dad, so I need to do a little planning and then shopping. They are having their semi-annual 40% off book sale until Feb 10th or so.

And what else...oh, I am going to a Knitting Exhibit on Friday with my mom (and Nordic glass) at the American Swedish Institute. The exhibit is called Radiant Bohus Knitting. Full report on the weekend.
