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:

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.

Year in Review

Due to the fact that my knitting is a little boring right now (I'm almost to the point where I'll post some progress) and the fact that I'm freakin' 35 today!!! Urgh, I thought I'd do this meme I found on another blog site.

Instructions: Copy the first sentence that you posted in each month of 2006.

A summary for folks who think this is way too boring or long -
I'm terribly optimistic about knitting (I was about making pottery too); My lace/eyelet scarf will never get done and I did nothing in April :)

No blog yet

The body of my felted bag is almost complete!

Okay, after figuring out the P2tog tbl thing and realizing from my stitch and bitch group that I was reading (and knitting) the purl rows the wrong way(!!!), the lace is coming along slowly.

April -
Wow - it’s been a really long time since I’ve written anything.

May -
My lace/eyelet scarf is coming along - only 200 rows to go.

June -
And I'm almost done with the other one too (only the toe to go!) (First pair of socks)

July -
knitting news: for some reason i counted incorrectly on my baby sweater and had to pull out several rows last night.

i’m almost finished with the baby cardi from knitting pure & simple.

September -
The ISE scarf is complete!

October -
Due to various reasons that are posted on the ISE site (other than the fact that I am a perfectionist :), I've started on a new scarf for my pal.


I'm optimistic I can complete the cardi it the next week or so.


I searched all day and still no yarn store sighting! (Prague trip)
