No overriding theme, other than knitting, really!
Biting the dust:
It doesn’t fit. I’m not sure if it’s the stranding on the lettering section or whether I need to go up another needle size, but the top section will be coming out. I’ll get the heel done first (the gaping hole in the middle of the sock in the picture above).
I’ve tidied up the project tracker in the right-hand menu of the blog. I’ve removed the non-active projects, or ones that I know I won’t finish. I’ve also added a new article …
is for this top-down jacket (first spotted over at Craftster). I’m using Sirdar Denim Chunky and crossing everything I can that I will have enough yarn to finish it. Kate (Zeitgeist) reckons on about 915 m (1000 yds) of chunky. I have 750 m (820 yds). I’m bigger than her. Even my brother could do the maths on that one. I am working the lace much looser than she is, but I may have to do the lower hems in another yarn (already on standby, just in case!).
WooHoo! I call this progress!
My dad may have a scarf for Christmas.
Breaking my own rules:
I have some un-written, un-spoken rules for this blog (no religion, swearing, politics, naughty bits, pets, or babies), so of course I’m about to break one:
I am a biased – she is adorable.
It’s going to be a tough week (my mum and more tests are involved) so I’ll probably see you for the final ABC Along entry. TTFN (ta-ta for now).
