272. My Recap

SONY DSC

That’s a sweater. Or at least it will be. I cast on the Garter Yoke Cardi from the Fall/Winter 2008 Knit.1, and I love it so far. I’m using 4mm needles, which surprised me because I typically don’t like worsted weight yarns knit on 4mm needles, and yet this I love. It’s all soft and supple, and it seems like it’s going to drape oh so nicely. One thing for sure though, it’s not going as quickly as Smokin’ did. I guess that’s what happens when you knit a sweater out of worsted weight. I am a little frightened because I’ve already gone through a full skein, and I haven’t even separated for the arms yet. I’ve only got five balls, so I might need to either do a bit of colorwork (charted elbows to wrists?), or hope and pray that there is some more of the yarn somewhere.

SONY DSC The mittens turned out beautifully. And, drum roll please, the colors worked out somehow. The thumbs are both the same colors. They are beautiful, fit wonderfully, and now the weather needs to get crisp so I can wear them. I think (if I didn’t already have enough on the needles) I want a pair of fingerless mitts.

Laminaria is DONE. It’s bound off, it’s blocked, and it’s even been worn. I just need to get around to taking some photos. Once the weather gets less wet I’ll go out to the park and take some awesome fall pictures. Maybe even with my mitts. Oh and my toque! I finished that too. I thought it was going to be way too long, but it’s perfect. I’ll get pictures of that too. Eek, looks like I’ve got some photos that need to be taken and no one to take them. Anyone in Ottawa want to go on a photo shoot?

-Cheers folks!
