It’s finally Wednesday, my grades are done, piano and ballet lessons are over, I’m far away from school and work, my kids are happily playing in the living room, so I can now show you some of the things I’ve been working on.
Here is the neck of my Eris so far.
I’m not too happy with the picked up stitches and wish I’d done a provisional cast-on to make the transition from one side to the other less noticeable, but that’s ok the cables are great. I’m worried a bit about the size I chose but I didn’t have enough yarn to make anything bigger so this is what I’m knitting. Oh for the love of cables!
I’ve also finished this little guy.
He also has lots of friends.
He just doesn’t have lots of needles to knit his yarn. You see, he’s a sheep, a black sheep of all things, who has lost his knitting needles. I’m on the lookout for some itsy bitsy ones but have yet to find any. Poor Eggbert will have to wait. Just in case you were wondering, the German recipe for Eggbert was found here. He was knit on size 2mm needles with black and white Regia sock yarn. Don’t you just love the little guy?
Oh and because I don’t think I have enough projects going on at one time, I went ahead and cast on some of this gorgeous stuff I happened to acquire at our last stitch and bitch.
I’ve been eyeing this wollmeise yarn for quite some time now, and with our money situation the way it is, I thought I would never get any but now I have two gorgeous skeins; Tiefer See (deep sea) and Vergißmeinnicht (Forget me not). Yeah!! Although this is sock yarn, I felt it too precious for my feet and started the Clementine Shawlette from Interweave Knits Spring 2007. I wasn’t too sure if this was a good colorway for the pattern but the more I knit, the more I like it.
