Ball count: 8/15 (those that have been used) - which means I've got seven left. I should make it, shouldn't I? My mum wants a "Kidney-warmer" cardigan, also known as ar*e-length! I did a quick calculation as to the finished width and it is (in the words of one of my favourite films, "My Cousin Vinny") dead-on-balls-accurate!
And now a wee question:
The notes I put up would be very rough and sketchy and they would just be the raw numbers that I used. If you've ever knit one of Stef Japel's designs, you should be able to figure it out! At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, I'd really recommend Knitting from the Top.
I was knitting these when my Grandma phoned on Saturday, so I've only done to just before the heel flap:
I've made a start on parte the first:
Can you stand the excitement? They could be almost anything - socks, sleeves, two tiny hats ...
And Nona - I have actually done one third of those items I promised (for peaceful palms), but I just can't show them yet. OK?
If you're a knitter on the internet, you probably already know that the new knitty is out, but for what it's worth, here's my review:
A bit ... mehh ... for my tastes.
For a little insight, the following are designs I could see myself making (sometime, maybe):
- Boogie Time (because of my allergies I can't wear normal watches, so this will be made)
- Tubey (I'm one of those hot/cold people, so this could actually be quite practical for me)
- Cheesy Puffs (for my dad as is or for my brother as a jacket)
- Spike scarf - lovely, lovely. I love it!
** The opening paragraph was written on Sunday and Monday. My mum spoke to my Grandpa on Monday night and he's now back home and still has his "sense of humour" - so he seems to be good!
Good to hear your grandpa is back home.By javede, at Tuesday, 06 December, 2005
