So we returned last weekend and I came back with 17 skeins of yarn! All the Lopi brand - 10 of the Alafoss (somewhat bulky) and 7 of the light. And all for under $50!!
We didn't burn, thank god. Thank you for all the kind posts about our welfare. My wife was moved to tears.
Really, Thanks you so much!
So, I have now finished the beret that i had started.
Started: 08th August 2008
Finished: 01st May 2009
Needles: 4 mm / 80 cm Addi Lace
Yarn: GGH "Kid Melange", colour 004, lot 8002451
Pattern: Seascape by Kieran Foley from Knitty Summer 2008 issue
Modifications: I added extra repeats to make the stole longer.
Notes: "Eärë" is Quenya for "The Open Sea"...closest I could think of coming to "Seascape".
I typically hand-wind my balls and pull them from the outside.
...sucks out loud so far.
After finishing my pinwheel blanket, I had (have) so much yarn left over in this color family that was already hacked and used that I can't do much else with it but freeform or random striped knitting
I have just finished my second BSJ and I am really disappointed. The first one I made looked really great, so I was excited to make another, but this looks like something the cat dragged in.
