So, I don’t think there was a whole lot of knitting in Hilton Head. Or, at least, I was a bit more optimistic. I knit a humongous scarf in the Cascade Magnum for Cam’s Resource Room teacher. And I bought one skein of Rowan 4ply while I was down there.
I started a Rogue sleeve in the Rowan Kid Classic. There is already a minor mistake that needs to be tinked. Purls on the right side. The mohair in the yarn makes it less than fun to rip. I modified the hem as indicated on the girl from Auntie’s site. Many thanks to Claudia for the mods to cardiganize. I think I am going to go ahead with that.
The sock I was planning to knit for me–might fit Gracie. What a bummer. You’d think, with all that ribbing, that it would have more give. Must have been a bit tense knitting. Oh well. If it doesn’t fit Gracie it may be going to her best buddy from MA. Cakelyn as Cameron used to call her.
Another pulse warmer was worked on too. I had worried there might not be enough beads on this pulsewarmer. I had drawn up the chart myself based on another pattern I had seen. But I love it. And it is reversible. I almost don’t want to give it away. But I think it will be perfect for its intended recipient. I am using the Dale Ull and Miyuki 8/0 beads.
A lot of green in that knitting. I love green. And I was very fortunate to receive some lovely green, handspun laceweight yarn from Margene. I absolutely love it–in all of its handspun slubbiness–800 yds from Plain & Fancy Sheep & Wool Co. My mom has been sorting through old lace patterns for me so perhaps I will find something perfect for it. Thank you Margene. You are a wonderful friend, an inspiring knitter and a tremendous asset to our knitblogging community.
