Sshh, I'm undercover...

Tuscany shawl
Originally uploaded by miminh3
The Tuscany Shawl from A. Singer's "No Sheep for you" is done and ready to fly to its new owner. This would be a good pattern for a lace beginner, the only modification I made was to have increases on the right-side rows rather than the wrong-side rows. The yarn is Yarn Botanika's merino/tencel in "mangoes and raspberries". It's silky, but not slippery to knit with. In other words, it's yummy!

My August socks are for Mangokiwi. She knows that but to keep a surprise element, I won't say which pattern I'm using nor the color of the socks. OK, just one hint: I'm using Sundara sock yarn.

If you're a sock knitter, read Clara's review, and get your copy of Cat Bordhi's new book.

If you're a lace knitter, get your copy of Evelyn Clark's "Knitting Lace Triangles"

If you like knitting podcasts, listen to Stash and Burn, my favorite knitting podcast. My workday wouldn't be the same without Jenny and Nicole, This American Life and Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!.

Since you're a TAL fan: I wanted to tell you that I dated Ira Glass in college (junior year, his sophomore year). We still sporadically (very sporadically) keep in touch. !!!
