Already? Really? That was a fast week!
Thistle scarf, I have applied myself to the Narcissa socks and have just turned the heel of sock two. I would like to finish these off before next week’s hospital appointment, so that I have something new for the waiting room.
Mermaid’s Song Shawl again.
It was looking awfully long, so I checked the pattern, and realised that (a) it is meant to be worked in laceweight and (b) it takes a lot more yarn than I have at my disposal.
Ah. I knew this really, but I had forgotten.
Thinking about my Thistle, it was about 2/3 of the yardage / size of the pattern due to subbing fingering weight for lace. The calculation was a lot easier to make with that one, because it was a long strip of flat knitting. This little number is possibly a triangle, but almost certainly curvaceous.
I have arbitrarily decided to stop knitting the lace edging after 15 repeats.
There is no scientific basis for this decision – I just like the number.
Watch this space!
Kex blanket, I dug it out of its bag last night and gave it some love.
Have you seen the second section before? Maybe not. There's not much to show as yet.
I knitted on after taking this photograph, so hopefully next week you will get a better sense of the full set of colours.
There are four segments to the main piece, and I think I have enough yarn to knit two of each colour combination.
After that, you knit a border all the way round the outside edge.
I think mine will be lavender.. but then again it might be orange :)
