To Busy Knitting To Blog
The first pair of socks are knit with the softest yarn I have ever knit with. It's Debbie Macomber's Petal Socks. There's 20% angora in them and as much as I love knitting socks I don't think I've ever enjoyed knitting a pair better than this pair.
Sunday is the last of the Felted Fair Isle Tote class I'm taking at Creative Yarns. The class has been a blast. On Sunday we get to felt this bag and I can't wait to see how it will look once it's felted.
Tomorrow is session two of the Twined Knitting class I'm taking at Creative Yarns. This is a totally new experience for me. Having to knit with my right hand makes it slower but I'm glad I do two handed fair isle or I never would have been able to knit the mittens. I'm using Berocco Ultra Alpaca.
The hat is blocking on a plate. The yarn is Debbie Bliss organic cotton. I have enough to knit at least two more hats. I'm just trying to find suitable colourwork patterns. The pattern is Nordic Winter Tam. I bought it from Ravelry.
I'm also working on two sweaters. One is another Vancouver Olympic set and the second is a sweater set for DH's great nephew. It's on hold at the moment while I get socks and chemo caps done.
