This is going to be so cool...

Remember that Amy Singer book that I told you about earlier? Well, I have now received an invite to the book launch party! The designers for some of the patterns are even going to be there, so we can get autographs! I've put it into my daybook already so I don't miss it. Let me know if you want a copy, and I'll get it autographed for you too.

In other news, I have started the shawl out of the kidsilk haze. It's a really lacy type of thing, and feels super soft when knitted up. That was also the most stitches that I've ever had to cast on. 299! I was afraid I was going to lose count. I'll take a picture when I've gotten further in it.

That's so totally awesome, I'm so jealous. The book looks fun, and I would love a copy, especially an autographed one! Yay! You'll have to take some pics of the launch party and post them here, too. =)

299 stitches, holy crap. It's funny that it's not like an even 300, though I'm sure there must be a good reason for that. Is it knitted with 2 strands held together?

Cool...hopefully there will be enough copies that I'll be able to get two of 'em.

The shawl is knit with just one strand. Sometimes I find it a little hard to work with because it's so thin. But the effect looks really nice.
