After having a decommissioned wrist for a couple weeks (long story) and finally figuring out a way to work around it (temporarily knitting that other, English way), I have made progress! Not just progress. In fact, I have cast something off.
Weekends go by too quickly. That’s my opinion, anyway. Despite what seemed like a minute, I managed to get a lot of progress done on the Doctor Who scarf, and I finished the béret généreux.
Wow! Last week got away from me almost completely. I was a bad blogger. Even my knitting was neglected. I did not work on anything until Saturday, which is a long break for me.
This is a bit controversial. Not long ago, there was a big to-do about the Jayne Hat. Sellers were forced to stop selling them. Cease and desist orders were sent out. It was crazy nonsense. I won’t get into that. I just want to focus on my love for the hat itself.
Hello! How are you? It’s been too long! If you’re seeing this posts, it can only mean one thing: The computer is back up and running!
In a rare move (ha!), I decided once again not to work on any of my many WIPs this weekend. I cast on something brand new and very little.
I love shawls. They’re the perfect pieces for adding just a touch more warmth on chilly nights (or in chilly offices). You can use almost any technique/style with them – from cables to garter to lace. It’s lace, really, that I’m loving most right now.
He’s finished! Well, ok, he’s nearly finished. All his pieces are knit, and most of them are assembled. He just doesn’t have his wings sewn on yet.
Now that you’ve got the basics of knitting, I’ll bet you’re ready to tackle a real project. The first time with a pattern can be a little overwhelming if you don’t know what to expect.
