Holey Knits

You wouldn't know it, but I'm actually kinda accomplishing something lately.

I'm about halfway through the third lace pattern now (I'll update a picture once I've got decent light again. After the third lace pattern, comes the net weaving. and beading.

Teal Brambles

Well, it's done.

I do actually really enjoy doing cables. It's lovely to watch your work grow.

Even the crown shaping is meditative.

And the hat is a great example of why blocking is important. Right now, it looks like a beanie. Once arrangements are made for delivery the recipient, I'm going to block it. I'll post updates then!

Send Needles

Nothing like knitting up a project you've already knitted so many times that you can almost, almost, knit it by memory.

Knitty's Bramble Beret. This time in a teal blue.

Once this is over, I can knit up a shawl. Or some kilt hose. Or some other project that someone else has asked me to do.

I'm very much eying Knitty's Shipwreck Shawl. However, it requires about 6 different needle sizes. In a size cable I don't happen to own. Which is why I want a KnitPick interchangeable's set.

If you feel like buying me one, I may cry.
