Calling all of you in or near Denver!!
Asbjorn is working on a Leisel (sp) scarf and I thought I would try it next. I have 55% silk 45% cashmere yarn.
I just want to say to everybody "HAPPY NEW YEAR" and hope had a lot of knitting this 2008!
And big luck and happiness each of you!
Here it is! The technique got more and more refined and I'm never knitting it in tweed again, but I'm happy with the design, as is my sister...
Maybe LONGER as well...
Bound off, blocked, and everything!
I saw the new year in and then some: Knitted until 6 am...Thank goodness for Toby Stephens in Jane Eyre on PBS...
I'm on row 4 of the crown on the Koolhaas hat and it calls for:
1/1 RPC, sl 1, k2tog, psso, 1/1 LPC
I finished the Liesel scarf, today. Here's a couple of pictures of it being blocked.
In early June '08 a book is slated to be released, titled "Knits for Men: 20 Sweaters, Vests, and Accessories" authored by Margaret Hubert, in paperback form.
