Finally


I was finally able to get all of our Prague pix uploaded and shared. They're out of order, but if you can make it through all of them, you'll see some amazing Czech architecture. The collections are here: http://bensue.shutterfly.com/action/

It's been so long since I've posted that I thought I'd also share new (and end of the year) knitting projects.

In Prague, I completed a scarf that Sangeeta commissioned. I think it turned out nicely after blocking:




For Christmas and my birthday, I received so many thoughtful gifts. One in particular, a skein of Handmaiden cashmere, knitted up quickly into this little short row hat:


I also finally got around to taking a photo of my waterlily scarf which I wore religiously in Prague:


The KP&S top down sweater is coming along. I didn't take it to Prague so I pretty much stopped at sleeve one. I'm running low on yarn (yikes) so I'm going to rip out the bottom ribbing and redo in a contrast color. I'm pretty pleased with this 'weekend sweater.'



And, last but not least, I'm finally getting around to knitting Ben a sweater. I bought this yarn at the Fall Fiber Festival in Montpelier, VA. It's pretty rough right now and smells like the outdoors (sheep), but it knits up beautifully. This is the neck of a top down sweater (Albrecht's sweater) in the Morehouse Farms book.

Very interesting article. You are really master.
You remind me my trip to Czech Republic last year.
Prague has to be one of the leading contenders for the title of most beautiful city in the world.
I spent one week there, which was long enough to see all of the tourist attractions, but I still want to go back and see them again. Also I really enjoyed my accommodation, Prague hotels are very good and no expensive.
Just look around at the great monuments, the Prague Castle with the Golden Lane and the St Vitus Cathedral, the facades in different colors and styles along the Vltava, the 1001 peaks all around, the numerous cathedrals, basilicas, churches, synagogues, the national theater, the lovely little alleys and so much more.
