I’ve been at my parents’ house the last few days, house-sitting and cooking for my teenaged sister until my parents come back from their vacation (in Hawaii). Enjoying watching television while knitting on the couch – something that doesn’t happen in my apartment since I don’t have a tv!
Not much to show, unfortunately. I’ve had to rip and reknit a large section of this new project I’ve been working on, but I think I’m back on track now. It’s reversible lace! More correctly, lace that looks great (but not the same) on both sides. I’m very excited about it.
Oh, and before I forget – Pavlov’s Dogs has a gig again tomorrow night! If you’re in Toronto and need a bit of a Wednesday night pick-me-up, check us (and lots of other awesome performers) out at the Rivoli for my friend Bella’s Burlesque Birthday Bash! Facebook page is here, and tickets are $10. Hope to see you there!
In dire need of something that didn’t require thinking and would be off the needles in a few short days, I went back to an oldie and knit up a Milkweed Shawl!
This one will live at lettuce knit – it’s knit from just 2 skeins of Koigu KPPPM, although I did have to bind off 2 rows early (on row 104). I used a 3.75mm needle for this one, and it’s really light and springy.
Super quick and I love the colours. We’ve got more at the shop if you’re interested, too! The colour number is P324.
Just a little bit funny to me to be knitting from my own pattern. But it was nice not to have to figure anything out or do any math while I was knitting it!
