Jan Eaton's Book Errata I've listed the known corrections for my crochet and knitting books here - titles include UK and US versions of 200 Crochet Blocks, 200 Knitted Blocks and 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns
Time, that is. Two weeks of my life have shot past without me getting round to posting anything. Not even a picture...
I've been busy (how I ever found time to work before I retired beats me) but some of what I've been doing is unbloggable as yet. My Obsession of the Moment is this book
and the more I look at the designs, the more I want to knit each and every one of them. I've started with the Triinu Scarf, adding beads instead of working the nupps.
The yarn is a skein of Schaefer Anne which came from the swap stall at last year's Knitting Safari; the size 6 beads are iridescent topaz and pick up the yarn colours nicely. I've dyed up two lots of laceweight for another of the designs - can't decide which of the colourways I like best. Yesterday I cast on a couple of plain vanilla socks to keep my fingers busy while I think about it.
These are 75% BFL/25% nylon; the pale-but-interesting dip-dyed colourway is called Tourmaline.
