Did I say that? Did I join that 2008 Stash group on Ravelry? Hmmm…must have slipped my mind…
I went to the LYS yesterday to pick up some prize materials (not the Knitty violator – the LYS that is actually an hour away) and I might have just got a few things for myself while I was there.
This is a teensy skein of artisan yarn – 100% silk – beaded. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but there was no way I was leaving without it once I had felt it.
I’m thinking of using it to border a hat and mitt set? I bought some co-ordinating pine green just in case that is what I do.
My Mom picked up some sock yarn for her grand-nephews and grand-niece.
Here is some proof that while I have been off sick (and neglecting the blog) I have been knitting. Oh – and using yarn I already had…so kind of stash paring. 😉
The Paton’s V-Neck Pullover
I had to rip the sleeves back because the decreases before the cuff were a little too Cirque d’Bizarre. After re-knitting, I discovered that somehow the darning needle — the very last one — was lost and so had to buy more yesterday too. Tonight, during Survivor’s finale (starting in t-8 minutes) I will seam them up and wear it to work tomorrow! yay!
And here is my Trapeze Jacket so far. Jeeksy asks “Oh, was there a camera?”
I like the construction of this sweater so far – but let me tell you, either I am used to being spoon fed patterns or I don’t know what. There have been a few steps that I was like what-the? and just carried on like they didn’t matter so….we’ll see where that gets me when it is time to do the sleeves. Eep!
I really love the slipped stitch ribbing. It looks so elegant and sort of tidy.
Uh-oh – Survivor’s on in 6 minutes. Gotta go!
