In the Gallery

Yesterday was one of those endlessly grey, rainy London days - and I was looking after my friend's little boy for the afternoon.

Who's Terry? - Of Men and Garments


Who's Terry?, originally uploaded by elemmaciltur.
Start: 14th January 2010
Finish: 21st August 2010
Needles: 3.5 mm and 4 mm Addi Turbo
Yarn: "Saphir" by Bernetta Wolle; 65% new wool, 15% super kid mohair, 20% nylon; Colour #438.02 (beige/natural), dye lot #9006381
Pattern: "Terry's Pullover" by Carol Feller, from Interweave Knits, Holiday Gifts 2009
Modification: Knitting the sleeves in the round. I really cannot fathom why the designer knitted the body in the round and knitted the sleeves flat (she said it's easier to join)...but I think that it's kinda nonsense and seaming down the sleeves totally beats the purpose of this otherwise wonderfully seamless construction....because it's obvious that it can be done seamlessly.

New York City!

So I've finally moved in and settled into the big apple. I love my apartment (as long as we don't get bed bugs). I already have found a job to work, that is until I find a better one.

Today is my knitting birthday.

Went down to the SF Main today to get my knit together at “Knit Happens!” They have it every third Saturday of the month and it was the third Saturday of August, 2009 at Knit Happens!

A question?

To all the sock knitters out there do you use a reinforcing thread in the heel and toe area if so what do you use.?
