I'm knitting the Evelyn Clark shoalwater shawl with Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace and it's not that fast "going." The yarn is thin, and suddenly, after no issues, I'm finding I don't care for the Addi Turbo "lace" needles much. Those KnitPicks Harmony or the Addi Natura's are truly dreamy. I'll switch as soon as I land someplace where I can get to a store.
But imagine being en route someplace and getting to meet up with fellow Ravelers in another city -- a fellow American and a Dane! We ate lunch (photo to come when I get wireless back), talked about knitting, and of course talked about Ravelry projects. What a great treat for me!
But one of the most interesting moments was trying to explain to a non-American that we 1) actually manufacture a totally "fake product" full of who-knows-what and dyes, 2) add sugar and water and 3) happily give it to our children. But we also want to dye wool with it -- yes, you guessed it -- we are talking about Kool-Aid. Oh, and you can dye your hair while you are at it, too!
And the day got even better -- thanks to cruising blogs, I found out the fall Knitty is up -- I've already put some of the patterns in my Ravelry queue!
