Hi KTE pal,
How funny that you have to ask me these things. I have a blog, I should post! And, now that The Event That Shall Not Be Named is over, I will. Perhaps I'll even post the answers to your questions – what an excellent thing! Thanks for the idea, and sorry for being such a mystery.
To answer your questions:
I'm not a monogamous knitter at all, so there are several things that I'm currently knitting (and thus, last knit). The last knitted item that I finished is a Shifting Sands scarf (pattern by Grumperina), while I was in Tucson. There are a few pictures on my blog, though no finished ones as of yet. I'm in love with it – the texture, the colour, the length. It's like the surface of a pearl, or the moon, or a choppy sea, or the sky about to storm. What good things! With this same yarn, I made a pair of shootin' stockings for my dad. I used a different stitch pattern, but the results are the same. I'm a bit sad that I can't get more of the yarn. But, then, if I could, would I have purchased it? Sometimes limited edition can be a good thing – I have to get it then then then, or I regret the chance missed.
Now, I'm in a sock phase. On my needles I've got:
1) moss green knee socks (though I might turn these into gauntlets instead, with perhaps a hat to match)
2) red and white striped anklets
3) pink lace stockings
I'm also working on a Lizard Ridge blanket, square by square, and a couple of little mohair triangle shawls as gifts for my niece and sister. Accessories are easiest for me. I'm busty AND plus-sized, so the investment required for a jumper or vest is quite a bit, even in an inexpensive yarn. I'm looking at knitting a sweater in the vein of the hourglass sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I'd like to keep the yarn the same, but aiee! I have to buy over a bag's worth of Cash Iroha, and that's stressful in more ways than I care to think about.
So, on my knitter's wish list? Something to felt, I think. I'd like to felt a bag, a largish-one to take with me to the farmer's market. Maybe a neck pillow or something equally sweet and modern-ish. Gloves. Knee high striped socks. Thermal, from Knitty.com. Placemats. A pair of socks using the motif that Eunny Jang created for this sweater.
What about you?
