I finished up the Mon Petit Chou hipsters, and they are so cute!
You can probably see some clear elastic sticking out near the top, I haven’t quite figured out how to secure that in yet. I laced up the sides with the same yarn. Here’s a modelled (and cropped) shot:
Mon Petit Chou
Pattern: from knitty
Yarn: Elann Esprit in “Ruby”, 2 balls
Needles: Denise US 6
Started: September 2, 2005
Finished: September 4, 2005
I also managed to finally finish a go with the flow sock. I think the next one will be faster (I hope).
The colour’s very accurate in that picture – and as you can see, my light tent technique really does consist of me just sticking my project under my topsheet.
I’ve been spending some quality time with my wonderful swift and winder, preparing for some new projects.
Check out that stack of handspun goodness on the right! That’s for a shawl – there’s going to be another colour as well, but that one’s still drying. In the middle are some lorna’s laces sock, for the second go with the flow sock and some sort of knee sock, probably. On the left is a stack of Elann Highland Chunky that’s been knit twice and is still holding up – I’m planning on doing the “Urban Aran” from Patons. I’ve already started once, but then I realized that I was way off on the sizing and ripped it out. I hope it’ll work out this time.
One last thing – my cheap retractable tape measure finally died, and I killed it. I pulled it out too far/too fast when trying to measure Cozy, and something broke inside. I need a new one.
