as my mother would say when I handed her a plate of my early “cookery”.
WARNING! ‘ERE BE SPOILERS!!!
If you’re knitting the “Laceless” shawl from Strange Knits the following post contains photographs of a border. A lace-less border. Knit (!) in sock-weight yarn. In two colours. You’ll have to contain your own excitement.
This is a really interesting (and I mean that most sincerely folks) method of working a side-ways border – you end up with no stitches to pick up when you’re done!
I’m sorry if this whole knit-along is now ruined for you. How ever will you survive?!?!
Oh, I seem to have regained my sarcasm. (No?! Really?!?!)
And why, you ask yourselves, have I started another shawl? It’s because I’ve finished Taygete! Hurrah!
I have to block it and I can’t do that until I find my dedicated shawl-blocking-dental-floss.
Also arising from the depths is the 2010 Advent Sampler Scarf
Yup, still grey.
Tiny amount of progress on Sakaki (remember that?)
The Swartbos waistcoat is also blocked and awaiting seaming and ribbing (ooh, err missus!)
Remember my Serpentine Socks? Oh, so long ago …. Well, I had 50 g of yarn left over so I cast on for some wrist warmers.
I may have miscalculated the yardage. You see that little pink ball at the top of the mitt in progress? That’s it. Colour suggestions for contrast thumbs?
I finished my 3-ply yarn, started during the Tour de Fleece
I got 130 m of worsted-weight out of 4oz which means it’s a fairly dense yarn but it should be great for cables. She says, trying to hide her disappointment over the short yardage!
I think that’s it for now. Obviously I’m feeling heaps better (the steroids were gooooooood) and I’m slowly catching up with blog posts/comments. I started off alphabetically (poor 2Paw didn’t know what hit her!) but now I’m just going in a random order! BRACE YOURSELF FOR BEING COMMENT-STRAFED!!
