F.O.'s believe it or not

Yes indeed, folks, step right up and see the most amazing sight! I have actually finished a couple of things. Here's proof:

and more proof:


O.K., so the socks are knit from worsted weight yarn and the pincushion is just a wee thing, but they are, technically, finished objects. The pincushion is a practice piece for the Gansey workshop being put on by Elizabeth Lovick through the EZasPi Yahoo group. I've already taken a Gansey workshop, from Beth Brown Reinsel herself no less, but this one will be great, too. Liz Lovick knows so much about traditional knitting from England and Scotland, and given my obsession with all things Scottish, you just know I'm going to soak up all of the information I can get.

I'm still blogging from my office. Wanna see? Here's part of my bookcase, on which sits (sit? not sure about the grammar on that one) my GOP elephant and Democratic donkey. These come in handy as props during my boring lectures about political parties.

Here's the top of my filing cabinet:

For those of you who aren't from Sacramento, Heather Fargo is our mayor. I used to work for her, and the mug is from her first campaign. I haven't worked for her for a few years, but I still consider her one of the finest people I've ever had the privilege to know. I'd show you the top of my desk, but the messiness of it would scandalize my mom, should she ever get a computer and actually see this blog.

I'm lurking-along (hmm, would that be a LA rather than a KAL?)with the Gansey Workshop and your pin cushion looks wonderful.

Hi Cindi...well, I was lured in by your post on the EzAsPi list and I'm glad I stopped by! I really enjoyed reading your posts and seeing your corner of the knitting world!

Plus, now I am inspired to get started on my little pincushions!
