That’s it folks! Have a good weekend :).
It kinda felt like Christmas for the last two weeks 🙂 !
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments about “Mr. Greenjeans“. He was a joy to knit, and fast too :)!
As mentioned on Ravelry, here is the first installment of the Graphic Designer Scarf challenge. DD wanted a specific colour, and has always been persnickety about softness, width, length, etc. of anything she wears :)! So, with the drop of a (beautifully knitted) gauntlet, I was off with some yarn and a graph pad, working out her latest scarf.
There are lots of discussions revolving around design, composition, colours and all that stuff in our house and I wanted this design to reflect some of what DD is always talking about.
So here ’tis. Graphic Designer I is the beginner version of this scarf. It’s the sketch of an idea, but already having “good bones” of design. It can be developed even further, and will be in Graphic Designer II…. As always, I only have one test knitter, so if you find any errors in the pattern, please let me know, and I love to see FO’s of my design, so if you make one – don’t be shy – send me a photo or link :)!
My October Booty Club package arrived this week, I finished the Chevron Scarf (finally!) and restarted my Sunray Shawl, and also started my Sockamania November socks.
Fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, fa, finished objects! (with apologies to my beloved Talking Heads)
Two more down for SOS ’07 and my first sock for the Sockamania knitalong (love this one). The green is my first sock from the Favourite Socks book – Anniversry Sock – and it was knit in this month’s Pick Up Sticks sock club yarn. The blue is “Spiralling Socks”, the spirals mirror each other on the left and right sock. This was done in J. Knits yarn from the Loopy Ewe. Love this yarn – it’s very fine and soft and the varigations are perfect (I’m not a fan of “pooley” and “stripey”, unless I buy a self-striping).
The second installment of Socktopia’s Mystery Sock came out yesterday, I’d just cast on the 2nd cuff – didn’t want to stop knitting with the yarn – so I’m anxious to get started on Part two today. And I finally have my Six Sox “I Love Gansey” started – this is coming out better than I expected, the yarn is NOT fighting with the design and that makes me happy :). I’ll cast on my “Shooting Stockings” for my commuter sock – nothing else is portable – what with charts and working from two ends of a yarn cake!
Oh! And this is totally cool….
I was nominated by SMariek, who has some of the best (free) hat / scarf and “warshrag” patterns that I’ve knit – drop by for a visit :)!
