A good weekend was had by all here. A fun evening with friends on Friday night (and Izzy had to be the center of attention throughout). Thanksgiving turkey shopping on Saturday. And we “invented” a new drink on Saturday:
In a glass with ice, add about 1 ounce peach schnapps, 1.5 ounces vodka, and fill with diet cola. Stir and drink!
Look! It’s Fulmar!
Lookie, lookie! A Fulmar update photo!
This is the completed front. I’ve made it a couple of inches shorter than the pattern directs, as I prefer my arans not quite so long. Also note that the sides are curled in so the side patterns don’t show up well.
I’ve into the pattern on the back. There was a fair amount of knitting done over the weekend, despite time put in doing the Thanksgiving grocery shopping.
And now for something completely different
Today’s entry is a pullover from a pattern in Marion Foale’s Classic Knitwear
Hard to see that there is a seed stitch diamond pattern knitted into the sweater. Hopefuly this closeup will show it a bit better:
It’s knitted in Harrisville shetland. Front and back are knitted separately and knitted together at the shoulders using the three needle bind-off technique. I picked up stitches around the armhole and knitted the sleeves down to the cuffs. I made it in about 1989 ant it’s gotten lots of wear — another of my favorite sweaters!
And I still got more Old Knitted Crap . . .
