A long way down memory lane
New yarn; good colours...

Beastly weather

October_22_2006

Today's a grey, grey, grey day. Yesterday was nice and bright and I went to Stash Yarns to buy needles, hang out and do a little knitting (scroll down). Nic, Dawn and Jill were there; it was also good to catch up with Anna and meet Polly who brought along her Kew socks from Knitty.

The needles are Addi bamboo circs which hopefully will be easier to use with Angel Hair mohair than wrestling with Addi Turbos which are too slippery. After frogging the beginning of this three times, I'm beginning to think the yarn should be called Devil's Spawn; there's nothing angelic about it...

Wave_from_knitty

This is Wavy from Knitty, a nice quick knit after struggling with the mohair. It's knitted in one of Silkwood's Lucky Dip yarns from Woolly Workshop on 4mm Bryspuns. I added an extra repeat to the width to compensate for using a thinner yarn and smaller needles and I like the colour a lot; shades of really in-your-face pink.

My Leaf Lace Shawl is finished and looks like a crumpled mess before blocking. I'm looking forward to blocking it with proper wires instead of using hundreds of pins; just need to find a clear stretch of carpet....

I love your Wavy scarf. I knitted that pattern for a friend in Australia and I liked it so much I think I might have to do one for me!

Typepad didn't tell me you'd commented on my blog - how rude! But your comment made me laugh out loud. :-) I can't be a 'sue weaver' though because I work with one!
