Jim mentioned to me yesterday that I haven't updated my blog for three weeks. I checked. It hasn't been that long but it's been over a week so I thought I'd share what I've been working on lately.
We started a KAL (knit-a-long) at the shop at the end of May. We are knitting Eadon by Susanna IC. I am using Cascade 220. I am now referring to this project as death by ribbing. I have finished the back which is 3 x 2 rib and my fronts are almost done. They at least have some cabling.
I am also working on Fluency Gloves by Sivia Harding. I plan on wearing these when walking Jake this winter. The yarn I am using is Soprano by Abstract Fiber in Black Opal which is 50% merino/50% silk. I bought this yarn when I was at Madrona in 2011 and it is oh so yummy!!
You prestring 44 beads for these and I like how the beads sit between the purl stitches.
|This is on the inside and what happens when you're not paying attention and skip a double point needle while knitting. I debated but it's been fixed.|
My other project which is not knitting related is a soccer t-shirt quilt for Hagen. When I was in Texas last month I picked up a few more shirts and shorts from him to fill in the blanks.
Now the goal is to finish something.
