I was linked by the Yarn Harlot!

If you're traveling from over there..... leave a note saying hello- and a link to your blog (if you have one) I'm a big fan of blogsurfing from comments.

I've had an absolutely crazy week... No spinning around here since the Harlot's visit Sunday. Instead I've been getting my trial notebook and parts together (opening statement, direct examinations, cross examinations and closing arguments) I basically have a final this upcoming weekend.

But even though I've been working hard... I still found some time for knitting!
I've been working on an unpattern for a felted purse.... and started a swatch from the yarn I won from Chappysmom's contest way back when.

I've also started dreaming of lace shawls.... I blame several people- the Harlot, for explaining that lace knitting is the most economical (darn those logical arguments!) Elizabeth, for extolling the beauty and fun of knitting shawls, Ada for finishing the Shaped Triangle Shawl from "A Gathering of Lace." Like I said on her blog... I....must...make....that....shawl.

Ok- deep breath. The shawl will have to wait- hopefully this new project will last me until Thanksgiving... when I bet I could get my mom to get me an early Christmas present. She loves the fact that I knit.

Ok- in final news... there was a news article about the Harlot... I got an unnamed mention... I am the knitter who ripped apart a perfectly good Ann Taylor sweater to reknit it.
Sounds sane to me...

Hello there! I'm surfing over from Yarn Harlot's site. What an amazing time you all seem to have had! I've been reading all the stories with envy!

I'm in lace mode, myself, doing the Kiri Shawl. It's lovely.
Hiya I am surfing over from the Yarn Harlot's site. It looks like everyone had a great time! Love your blog!
Oh oh..i'm glad i'm not the only one that got you dreaming of lace knitting!
I'm glad you're using that yarn! It's such pretty stuff, and such a great shade of purple. And yes, by all means, you should try lace. It's fun and the magic when you block it?? Absolutely amazing. Good luck with that!
I'm surfing from Harlot's site too! Glad you had fun. It sounded like a great time.
