I have been knitting...

While the Kumihimo beading seems to have overtaken my life lately, there has been knitting. I've been doing a fair bit of knitting on the Tappan Zee cardigan - I'm at the boring stockinette part right now, so it seems to take forever, but I can crank out quite a few rows at the boy's baseball games, and we've got three more of those this week before the end of the season, so I'm hoping for progress. It's also great car knitting, so the Labour Day trip to the cottage should see some growth as well.
The rainbow scarf grows a little slower - I don't have anyone in mind for this, so there doesn't seem to be a huge rush on it. (Tappan Zee is my primary knit because it is for ME!)

Not to say there hasn't been beading - 4 new ones since I last showed you. (the 4 bottom ones - but the 2 at the very bottom aren't Kumihimo, just some fabulous jewellery findings I came across and HAD to have...

The pink and gold one is for our cottage neighbour - Her husband has been a godsend this summer, helping with the deck and just in general. and I know he would never take anything as a thank you, but would appreciate his wife getting this. That and the fact that she's a great friend and better person.

The small round stone beaded one - well, I'm wearing it today. I think I'll keep it for myself.

Oh, and a note to Robyn - I can be found on Ravelry as Curlerchik, however, I'm a proud Ravelry underachiever - I post nothing there, and only use it as a reference. Sorry!

Great sweater you're working on - it's very cute.

Oh wow, your beading is gorgeous! I must take a class. I have so many beads in my house but I haven't made much in a while (except some earrings).
