Here’s my latest mess of yarn. This is what I’ve knit on the last few days.
See the orange tweed at the bottom of the photo? That’s a test knit for Susan Pandorf. It will get its own reveal in a few days. Susan designs the most gorgeous things, and this project is no exception.
The bright green is another Gathered Scarf. It’s for Ms In Charge. The other half of the scarf will be hot pink to match her new coat.
The aqua is Amelia. I’m knitting the body in one piece and I’m nearing the armholes.
The orange at the top is my Must Have Cardi. I said I’m knitting it with Helen, and that’s partly true. I started mine in January of last year. Helen started hers last weekend. She’ll probably have hers done by the time I start the sleeves!
I’m knitting the body in one piece. I’ve put the fronts on another needle, and I think I’m pretty close to being finished with the back. I worked on it last night and had to fix the center cables twice. They’re not that hard!!! You just move the knit stitches in one stitch on every right side row. Somehow, I forgot, twice!!! I fixed my mistakes, twice!!! Then I went to sleep. I think this is going to be my project for the rest of this week and this weekend. It’s cold here and I could be wearing this.
My house looks kind of like that bowl…lots of unmatched stuff all over. There’s yarn all over the bedroom. That’s Helen’s fault. We decided that we should knit Madli’s Shawl together, but I wanted beads in mine. What followed was an avalanche of yarn and beads. And after all that digging, what did I choose? White! Oh, and in the middle of that, I ordered more beads, which I’m not using! Thank’s Helen!!!
And the laundry room….I should have named the blog “Crazy Laundry Lady Knits”. I’ve already posted painful laundry room photos twice! Use your imagination.
Time to go study the Civil War and multiplication tables with Ms. In Charge. If she sleeps on flash cards, will she absorb 8 x 7?
