I am still knitting

Even though it doesn't looks like I do from my posts...
I finished the knitting on the Hey Teach cardi

And the done up the orangey bamboo socks. I tried several patterns with the yarn, but it resisted all of them, so I ended up doing two by two ribbing and a turned down to where I twisted (cabled) the ribbing and I bind it off with a picot edging:

And finally a modelled shot from the tiny short shrug I made out of four balls of Rowan cotton tape:

I love all of this. The shrug looks great on you. Have you lost some weight ?

Today I watched the movie that made me think of you. "Belle Epoche" is a Spanish film w/ English subtitles. There are SO many lace sweaters, wraps & blouses. Definetly a lace-knitters movie. It was made back in 1993. The watch is worth the lace.

And neither of us was drunk, we've only drank tea and been just trying to figure out how the flash works with the phone-camera...
