Cables and Fiber Fair Prep

I'm still making steady progress on my Henri, and I'm still totally in love with it. I can't get over how soft the yarn is, how perfect the color is, and how crazy gorgeous those cables are. These are long rows, but I'm getting through a few every day during lunch, and if I have time to knit in the evenings as well I can get a couple more done.

This weekend is NCFF, and I'm going to be working the info booth most of the weekend, so I'll be bringing some simpler projects and design samples to work on there. Actually, everything I'm bringing is mostly garter stitch, which is going to be really easy. They're all different weights though, so hopefully that will keep it from getting boring- I'll be bringing my Lazy A, my Pocketful of Posies sample, and a brand new laceweight shawl sample. I should be able to make some good progress on all of them, barring any emergencies (knock on wood!).

I had to take a couple days off from working on my Henri earlier this week- I stepped on a walnut in my walkway and fell flat on my back, so Sunday evening and most of Monday were spent laying flat on my back. Not fun. I'm still a little sore, but much better, and I'm so glad that I can actually sit up again- laying down is super boring, as it turns out! I'd been planning to get through most of the cable panel before Friday, but we'll see how that goes since I lost all of Monday. Either way, this KAL goes through the end of October, so it's not like I'm in a real big time crunch!

  1. IT'S A HENRI! I still absolutely love my version of it (even if those bobbles still give me nightmares). I can't wait to see your fo!
