I Do Still Knit

Despite the lack of evidence here on the blog, I have been knitting.

This is the completed back of the Tweedy Aran Cardigan (Rav link). There are approximately 5000 ptbl's in this section. I used to hate ptbl, and was unable to execute one in under ten minutes. Now I just hate it.

I have to admit, though, all those twisted stitches make for a lovely textured fabric. I'm trying to get this one finished before the summer heat kicks in. I don't think I can handle a lap full of aran weight fuzzy wool in 90 degree temps.

And I've been gartering away on my Noro log cabin blanket, which continues to captivate me with its ever-changing colors.

This is perfect carry-along and/or tv and/or social knitting. I even worked on a square at the movie theater during Iron Man II (good thing I had something interesting to do).

I love this one from every angle.

Mmmm...can't get enough of that Noro!

Someone please remind me of that when I have to join all these things together.

Of course you're still knitting - what else would you pair with all those pretty skirts?

ptbl-now I just hate it! HA! I'm doing some twisted stitching myself in the latest shawl-fortunately not on the purl side.

Oh how I'm going to lemming you on that Noro blankey some day!

I'm going to see Iron Man 2 this weekend. Should I take this as a sign I should bring along some knitting?

Gorgeous Noro. I have to laugh at the Iron Man II comment. My boyfolk (9 and 11) also insisted on seeing that the moment it came out. Thank goodness, at the last minute I had something else to do, so their dad took them.

Love the noro blanket! So beautiful. How many skeins do you think you are using?

I sat in Iron Man 2 just WISHING I had my knitting with me. Love the Noro blocks.
