A couple FOs and a Harlot

Last Friday, Amanda and I went to go see the Yarn Harlot. We ran into Meg! We waited to get Meg's book signed for her because she's still on the mend! We met Carolyn in all that waiting! There's no point in me saying much else. You all know the Yarn Harlot, you know she's funny...



...and even though I look dreadful, I held the sock.

Oh well. All that waiting was conducive to plenty of knitting. My mom found four balls of Lion Brand Landscapes (in Rose Garden) at Big Lots for very cheap, and they made their way into my Easter basket. I didn't waste a lot of time figuring out to do with it. When I left I had very little done on a scarf:




And there it is, all neatly finished up. I pretty much did the whole thing while waiting to meet Stephanie.

One more day of knitting gave me a matching hat:



But don't you all worry. I've joined the sleeves to the body on the Colorblind Librarian Autumn Rose sweater. It's one piece now, and it shouldn't be too much longer before I get to steek and finish everything up. I'm thinking I'll need a nice glass of wine before I take scissors to that damn thing. Really. The thought frightens me. Um, just like realizing it's not too long until my first exam also frightens me...

For good measure, I'll leave you with Orangecat on a wet sweater.

As always, am jealous of the Harlot meeting!

Scarf and hat look great.

The scarf looks gorgeous! I've been wanting to try the pattern, and shall, as soon as ever I get some yarn that looks like that.

Your Orangecat is gorgeous too. Yummy. (I sometimes react to cats as if they were food, sorry!) Is that her/his real name?

Love it! That scarf really turned out beautiful. I can't believe that it knit up so quickly.

The hat looks great too. You're going to be styling next winter.

Rats, I didn't see you at the Harlot Event! HunterXan and I got there around 5:30 p.m. to get seats (we both work in the downtown).

Good luck on your steeking. I think I would faint...
