When Good Intentions Go Astray
The big news, and what I thought I'd posted, is that last Wednesday the Jaki Design patterns (the ones Kim & I did) went on sale on Stephanie's Wool Peddler site - look under the Kits & Patterns links on the main page. Yippee!!!
On the knitting front, I'm working on a Xmas stocking pattern for Stephanie that should be done in the next few days. Then I have a felted wool & silk bowl / basket that I want to try. The Recycled Silk held up well through two hot water cycles when I made the catnip mouse, so I think it will work this way too. Updates to follow.
I turned in two more hats and a couple scarves at the K4 meeting last week, but I can't remember if I updated the totals on those in the sidebar. I'm going to assume that I did. I have three more scarves ready to go and a fourth one almost done. The gold & red ones are form a heavy but soft craft yarn that someone donated. They're 16 stitches on a size 15 needle and work up quickly. The variegated one will go with a windowpane hat that uses an old rose for the ribbing and grid with this variegated underneath. One of the sets that I finished before last weeks meeting was the same hat with a solid color scarf in the old rose. One each of the Bernat 6 oz variegated & 8 oz solid worsted acrylic will make two hats & two scarves.
I've been making progress on the sweater I'm making for Megan - this is my knit version of the crocheted sweater her Mom made in hot pink. I like the way it's turning out. I used a seed stitch on the variegated panel to add some texture. The next row starts the neck shaping, then I'll use a 3 needle bind-off on the shoulders and pick up the sleeves from the armholes and knit them down to the wrists.
I'm still working on washcloths for our Cloths For Katrina project. I have a dozen finished and one on the needles. Latest count of PIPs is up to 9 as I found a Feather & Fan baby afghan that I was working on last fall and put aside when I started making all the hats, scarves, etc. for the K4 project. So much yarn, so little time!
