Yes, I am in the grip of poncho madness!
Here is my new “Not-Colinette” poncho in progress:
This could be the Official Poncho of Knit Happens, eh? The colors certainly are right.
I wasn’t too sure about my yarn choices at first, but the more I knit, the more I like it. Don’t think this will be a particularly practical garment, but it’ll be a fun one!
Fiona Bag Knit-Along
Didja see the cute button for the knit-along that Brooks made? It’s over there to the right, in my sidebar. I’ll be buying my yarn to make Fiona this week, but will do my best to refrain from starting til the official starting date.
I’m close to armhole decreases on Tina — see? Just a couple more inches.
I haven’t made up my mind about the collar yet. I’m not too crazy about the rolled stockinette stitch stuff they have going on there. But it’s less offensive than some rolled collars I’ve seen. So I may knit it according to the pattern. Only time will tell. Exciting, no?
Something New . . .
I’ve been mulling over what to knit with the Rowan All Seasons Cotton I won off eBay last week. I couldn’t find anything that really rang my chimes. So . . .
This is what I might do.
Pattern writing at its finest.
Speaking of Rowan
I got this in the mail yesterday:
The color is “Pool,” the yarn is “Calmer.” I also got Rowan Book 35, and I plan to knit Audrey. I finally succumbed after reading another knitter’s blog where she describes how wonderful knitting with Calmer is. I will name no names (cough::Becky::cough) but I blame her entirely.
It’s the best excuse I can come up on short notice.
Critter Knitters Update!
Liz is back from vacation and has updated the blankets received page! She reports a total of 145 blankets received so far, and she hasn’t gotten her mail delivery started up yet, so I bet that number will go up in the near future!
