My knit-bud L-B and I are going to participate in our own “Inishmore Challenge.”
We will both knit the classic version of Inishmore (as opposed to the cropped version) in size small, both using Virtual Yarns 3-ply Hebridean, both in the color Sea Ivory (as it happens).
We will commence knitting on Monday May 16, 2005. It’s going to be a lot of fun to see who finishes first! We both have full-time jobs and we are both pretty fast knitters. L-B has won prizes for the speed of her knitting at the Virginia State Fair.
Anyone want to join us in knitting Inishmore? Just for fun — you don’t have to join our race, unless you want to.
By the way, there is a Yahoo Group set up, Inishknit, which is a knit-along for anyone knitting sweaters from Alice Starmore’s Fishermen’s Sweaters book. A great place to go for support and camaraderie! I joined the group when I knit Kinsale a couple of months ago. There are some lovely finished Inishmores in the group’s photo section.
Lacy Cardi Update
Here are the front ties of the Lacy Cardi, primly tied together.
I’ve not done much else on it, but I did start the second sleeve on the commute today.
Oh my. Even my 80’s self would not have succumbed to those.
And kindly note that I managed to jam three links to three different places in one sentence. A new personal best.
As far as I’m concerned, the weekend has begun. I’m off from work until Tuesday. Got stuff to do, ya know?
Even though what I have to do can be classified as work, working at home is far superior to working at the office.
