Speedy Needles

This past week, I've experienced an almost magical combination of bulky yarn, fast needles, and a large gauge. After casting on at the last knit night, I'm only half a row and a bind off away from completing the body of The Mister's Big Thaw.

I've also got only a toe to go before I finish the first of a pair of socks for a friend.

The Mister and I are headed down to Deep Creek, Md., this weekend so that he can go skiing. I don't ski, which means I'll have a day with my wool. You may see a finished sweater in a few days!


  1. Holy cow, is that the sock yarn you picked up on Saturday? You're zipping right along!

    (my word verification is "comicist," funny!)

  2. Gotta love bulky yarn!! The striping on your sock is beautiful! Have fun knitting in the lodge :-)
