Tuesday was the big sweater unveiling! Mr. and Mrs. Nash rocked a pair of fabulous sweaters knitted by the latter. Alex wore a cardigan that would make Elizabeth Zimmermann proud. I'll admit it made me swoon.
Squirrels! What else?
Yes, that's totally a Hogwarts house sweater. John's a Slytherin.
Clara, our littlest knitter, has been making progress on her red scarf.
Anna, a new addition to SnB, has an aunt who moonlights as a knitting fairy. Harmony needles and Noro yarn for her first project? Classy.
We also had a crocheting panda stop by for a bit.
Emily (Shewhomustnotbepictured) finished her first hat! Next up: learning how to purl. Of course, she has to obtain some more yarn first. Since I successfully converted her to a wool lover, she may have difficulty finding anything in Kirksville (insert plug for combination yarn store/bike shop in Kirksville).
As for me, I've been chipping away at Selbu Modern. I'll admit the ribbing section made me want to punch a baby. But not a baby in a cardigan. No amount of anger could make me want to punch a baby wearing a cardigan. Anyway, the colorwork section has proven to be immense fun. I'm optimistic that it will be finished for Deathly Hallows, Pt 1 premiere.
*500 bonus points if you correctly identified the title as Relient K lyrics. They played this weekend in Kirksville. Of course Matt Theissen got married before I finally saw him in concert.
