I in general hate knitting sleeves. They seem to take forever and offer little reward (at least normally). But not this time. These sleeves are knit in the round and start at the wrist. I'm totally in love. Digging every round!
It seems that Zooey is growing do fast I have a hard time letting go of some of my favorite outfits. These two night gowns are now too short. So I decided to turn them into dresses. A few more months of wearing!
Well... I have good news and bad news on this front. The good news is that Septembers block was finished and looks great. Octobers though- well I messed it up twice and ended up not being able to send anything finished. Just pieces of fabric that were cut up. Very sad. Turns out my major mistake was at step two and there was no recovering.
Started on March 24 and finished on October 14. Of course I didn't work on it non-stop. I used 2 skeins of pure silk from Jaeger silk. The yarn is do yummy! Size 6 needles were used and I made no modifications to the pattern!
Well I made some serious progress in my mystery pullover. I'm currently at the sleeves (which requires another pair of needles - which I don't have). I've now picked up this scarf (which is a Christmas gift). Can I finish it by the end of the weekend?? 1.5 skeins left.
This past weekend was the Taos wool festival. We took Zooey up for her first encounter with alpacas, rabbits and a lot of fiber. It was a perfect fall day with great friends and a lovely breakfast. What more could you ask for?
One skein wonder project. One skein of Rowan Felted Tweed (DK). So only 191 yards with size 7 needles. I started on August 25 and finished on October 5th. I added extra stitches and knit it a but longer. Should fit her at 1.5 or 2 years!
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
