My school district canceled school today, so I busied myself getting a project done for a friend of mine. Initially, I was just planning on doing the socks, but had enough yarn left over to do a hat as well. So, he gets both. I tried something different with the socks. I used the heavy worsted wool, but instead of using the recommended US7 or US8 needles, I used US5.
Stroll by Knit Picks. Colorway is Cartoons.
This is a pair I finished a few weeks ago. The yarn is Felici that I got from Knit Picks. The colorway is Rainbow which they currently have back-ordered.
Only about 6 more rounds of pattern to go (8") and I'll be done with this bad boy.
This weekend I went on a retreat at Saint Gregory's monastery in Three Rivers MI... I actually knitted in public at the guesthouse.
We have actually gotten a bit more snow than normal this year. I woke up to a bit of a white world for three weekends in a row again this morning.
Does anyone have the pattern for the Warm Thoughts Throw? I used to have the pattern. Problem is I'm only half way done with the blanket. Google doesn't help. Nor does Ravelry.
No Knitting to share this time, just photos of what NW burbs of Chicago
look like with 13" of snow in two days and there is more falling. Why do we
live in this climate!?
Now where did I put that ticket to the tropics?
Just wondering if anyone is a member. Is it worthwhile to join?
I had fun knitting this top down raglan. No charts or pre-planning...just "composed" as I knit. The yarn is KnitPicks "Chroma" that I bought last year during their half price blow-out sale. The raglan yoke and body took three days to knit, each sleeve took one day....five days of fun!
