Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.

Thank you to cluelesswonder (ravlink) for a lovely hat, and some lovely extras in the package. I died before breakfast lol I guess this means that the hat attack is done for me this round. Maybe I'll knit faster next time ^_^

I've also made a lot of progress on my socks. No pictures right now, but I have a pretty diagram ^_^

Victorian Lace wrap (rav link)
Pattern: Victorian Ruby by Jane Sowerby
Source: Victorian Lace Today (book)
Recipient: Bridesmaid
Occasion: My wedding next year (September 2009)
Started: July 22, 2008
Completed: Setpember 9, 2008

Needles: US 7 / 4.5mm and a crochet hook for finishing (not done yet)
Notions: I'm very happy I decided to block it, I really hope it opens up quite a bit. I'm still toying with the idea of doing a crochet chain edge, but it may look fine after I unpin it.

I finished the hat attack hat tonight. WoO!

2. Gift Item: Hat Attack (website)(ravlink)
Recipient: fairyknits(ravlink)
Occasion: crazy swap thing
Deadline: September 16

I am partaking in the Hat Attack 2: The Death Hat only knocks Twice. We received our target assignments yesterday, and I am nearing the end of my hat. I'm having fun, but want to go knit other things! lol

I really need to finish the socks… just for my own piece of mind. Still no photos yet, sorry, but be satisfied with this WIP photo of my death hat, named Inigo Montoya. Cheers.

Muir is DONE! She is blocking and blocker her was an adventure. Blocking involved some sweat and a lot of steam. I was very careful not to melt the acrylic, but I know I knicked a few spots. Here's a picture of her pinned down. So exciting!

I also finished one of the bridesmaid gifts this week to. I'll block it after Muir is done, but in the mean time, be satisfied with this crappy photo:

We're going camping this weekend, and so I will be bringing my socks with me. Hopefully they will go better than last time.

Love and pie
