Completed Glynis Socks and Namaste Progress

Elsewhere, I have talked about my love for Indigodragonfly yarn.  I have a desire to hoard the yarn in skein instead of knitting with it.  Fortunately, Kim started a KAL (knitalong) in which the only rule was that you used her yarn.  That gave me the push I needed to actually...well, use her yarn.

In other knitting, I finished a pair of socks for a Christmas gift for my sister.  Click here if you're a ravelry member and your name is not Brenda.

Now I'm working on a yoga mat bag from Knitty called Namaste.  I found something to make with the cotton yarn that has confounded me ever since I bought it.

A friend asked me if I wanted to take a yoga class with her this summer, and we've been going for several weeks.  I'm really enjoying it, although I have to remember not to look at other, freakishly flexible people in our class.  I know that the important thing is that I feel the stretch, not how far I'm able to move a body part.  This is difficult to remember considering my hamstrings are more rubber cement than rubber band.

Onward and upward.

  1. Okay, I now want to make a yoga mat even though I don't think that mat would EVER hold my body and flimsy legs in one place. But I admire (always) your incredible knitting skills! The mat and socks are both lovely!
