Photos of things on the needles and recently off

Still no sun, but these photos give you an idea of the non-shawl KAL things I am working on.

This blue is something that has been on my needles for a while.  It is linen stitch, so the going is slow.

This scarf is for my niece C – I mentioned it the other day, but thought you might like to see it.  It is hard to see the beads in these photos but they are there. Every 1st and 9th row.  🙂

These bracelets and necklace are ready to go off to the shop and hopefully sell. A pair of earrings will join them in the bag on the table, as soon as they dry.  🙂 Tomorrow I will take them all over there and let the world at them!

Cast on another necklace today – salmon pink and cream, with ruffles. As always, the patterns are based on those of Laura Nelkin, although lately I have been tweaking them and making them my own.  It was just a matter of time, right?

Polar opposite yarns

The yarn I am using for the CAL is Lamb’s pride bulky – it is soft and smooth and BIG. Once I finish each week’s rows, I go back to my knitting WIP – a linen stitch scarf, done in lace weight wool/silk blend, hand dyed by Linda at PineStar Studio. It’s on size 7 (US) needles, and the row gauge is about 14 rows to the inch. Yup, you read that right, and I typed it right. So when you look at this scarf, you know, it has many rows and much time into it. My plan was to keep going at it until I run out of yarn. The skein is 300 yards. I hope I live that long.

It will be beautiful when it is done. I will be ancient when it is done.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
