I've been enticed by many projects lately, and have casted on accordingly. But I have little progress to report, so I'm afraid my next few posts might be quite boring.
But before I get to all that stuff, let me show you the Blanket! The gals at KAH got together to knit our friend Destiny this baby blanket. We each bought a Roo pattern for the animal motifs - Jill sewed it together, Shannon crocheted the borders, and voila! We are giving all the patterns we bought to Destiny.
My square was the fish in the upper left corner, or below:
We knit it out of Cascade Cotton Rich. It was a lot of fun collaborating on a project like that, and I think Mr. Landon is enjoying it immensely.
On to my knitting - my first "new" project: Friday Harbor Socks.
I have to say -the cuff chart on these bad boys does NOT work correctly. I adjusted it to make it look like the picture in the book Knitting on the Road (Nancy Bush). The interesting thing is - my Sockapalooza pal made me these socks and she clearly had the same problem -except she didn't correct her work to reflect the picture. Her cuffs came out totally different, and that is precisely what I liked so much about this pattern! So it's too late now for me, I'm not ripping it out, but they will be just fine. I'm knitting these out of Tess Designer Yarns Sock & Baby, brought to me by Julia and Nichole after their knitting/yoga retreat in Maine last Fall.
More boring stuff, and then I'm outta here. Remember this? Well, it's been sitting in my closet for one year now, so I thought I'd knit a bit more. Guess what? Hours of stockinette in the round later, and it's still a brown blob!
(It's the Phyllo-Yoked Pullover from Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan, knit in Rowan Calmer) Check back next April for the next status update.
That's all for now, folks.
