I'm knitting a Penguin as part of my 2006 Christmas list. (Yes, I know, I'm way way behind)
It's an Urban Commando Penguin. the back, head and wings are in a grey/black/white urban camo colour.
you better believe it does, it interferes with my knitting.
The qoute is bollixed up - so sue me!
Proof-knitting by volunteers underway.
Pattern is definately proofed through row 100 and I *think* I've got it corrected the rest of the way.
only 13 more to go! Granted - I'm off celebrating Christmas in 1842 but it's still the holidays. Caroling on Friday, Saturday, Saturday night and today (sunday) .
Remember the Spanish square Doily I test knit a while back?
One of the things I did last weekend while desporting myself with 88 women at the Seven Hills Inn and Resort in Lenox, Mass was attend a workshop in lace knitting taught by Pam Allen.
I was at WEBS last friday - becuse hey, it was only an hour's detour from where I was going anyway. Too close to pass up a visit.
And I bought a swift. (among other things)
I forgot this row since I knit it last. Row 26 of the Spanish doily - which I am using as the center of my 'Spanish Armada' shawl consists of:
*s2kp, yo, s3k2togp, yo;
It still needs blocking - I don't think I'll get that done tonight, or even tomorrow - maybe I'll block it over the weekend.
Inspired by a number of you guys - I made my first hat; something I've put off and put off for years.
This will join a scarf and be sent off to my japanese nephew-in-law
