Happy Birthday to us! We are 5 (hooray!) here at Girls in Sheep Clothing and celebrating with this fun knitalong. It was so exciting to see posts appear yesterday as we get started on our Streusels (my ravelry notes are here). I cast on at midnight on the 31st since I was up waiting for Jas to get home from work (he set power and did standby for the Jay Z / Beyoncé concert at Safeco Field Wednesday night).
I love knitting up these jumbly masses of stitches, knowing what awaits when we finally get to block our work and see the magic happen. Who would think that messy looking lace edge could become what it does? It makes me kind of giddy just thinking about it!
I'm also working on a test knit for dandiliongirl on Ravelry (notes here) ~ another poncho to add to my collection...this one with a lace panel...again, giddy :) ... lace ... mmmmm, lace!!!!
So not much chatter from me today ~ the sun is shining (it's hot!!) ~ I'm going to sit in the shade and listen to some tunes and knit the day away. I'm imagining you all gathered round, needles clickity clacking away, joining me in all the fun! Thanks for celebrating with Kelli and I ~ I love that you all come back and knit with us when you're invited!
Looking forward to hearing from more of you and seeing some progress! And newcomers are still welcome ~ it's never to late to join in the fun :) ~ Happy Friday !
