Yesterday presented me with my opportunity for blog photo revenge -- I went to that Knitting Knut Abby's house and took her picture in order to post it on my blog:

She's wearing on her hand her first Fair Isle project ever, the Floral Fair Isle gloves that the Feral Knitters are doing as a knit-along. I'm not sure if anyone else in the Ferals group has actually started their gloves. I know last Monday night when the Ferals met, Beth was winding her yarn for hers. I've pulled out yarn for mine, but haven't gotten around to casting on, yet.

Abby hopes to come to a Ferals meeting some day but because of the distance (she lives far away in Pierce County) hasn't been able to join us yet. But I applaud her enthusiasm for getting into this knit-along. The rest of us Ferals have some catching up to do.

Yesterday, while Abby cast on and knitted the ribbing for Glove #2, I knitted some on my Friday Harbor sock and also on my Wrapped in Tradition Poncho. I've completed 10 points of the lower lace border on this poncho -- that's 10 points out of 20, so I'm halfway finished with this edging. So we can officially say that I've finished the back edging . . . or is it the front?

Oooh.... your lace poncho is heavenly. What color of KSH are you using? Hmmmm... I happen to have exactly 3 balls of Pearl KSH left in my stash.

Jewel: *someone* advised me to wait on starting this poncho until the new fall colors of KSH came in. She went so far as to say that I might regret it, otherwise. I took that person's wise advice, kept my nose to the knitting needles to finish DSis's socks. By the time I finished the socks, my fall Rowan order had arrived, including this color of KSH -- Grace.

Love those fair isle mits! I'm tempted to join another knit-along but will try to restrain myself!!
