I am freaking out about the two exams I have left – one on Monday night and one on Tuesday afternoon. So I probably won’t be around the next couple days! But today I’ve actually got a couple of FO’s…
First off, a longstanding project, the Whitby socks.
Pattern: “Whitby Socks” from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Louet Gems Opal, 2 50 g skeins
Needles: 2.5 mm bamboo circ
Finished: May 5, 2006
Why’d these take so long? Fun, easy to remember pattern; pretty chunky, soft yarn – well, I was saving it to do at work, and I did do most of the knitting while I was there (and since I was only in one day a week, I wasn’t getting that much time in on them). If you counted the actual days I worked on this pair, it’d certainly be less than a week. They really are fast, I just took my time.
The finished Dulaan raglan:
Cute sweater, super fast, and a stashbuster! I just hope it fits someone.
I made another hat, too – I was running out of both of the colours, so I just alternated them at the top.
And although I should really be spending about *all* of my time studying, I have done a wee bit of spinning as well (hey, gotta go something to unwind before bed). The white skein is one ply of merino and one ply of tussah, and is soooooo soft. I’ve got another skein of it done, too (slightly smaller skein). I think I shall dye it a slate grey-blue, perhaps. The one in back is the last skein spun up from the batts I got at the Frolic, a nice pinky-purpley-heathery colour.
Have a good couple days! I know I uh…won’t.
