I can't believe it's been almost two months since I blogged. The time flies by way too quickly. I've been busy knitting away. Here just some of the stuff I've done.
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.
