I’ve been blogging so much about Seattle lately that I haven’t written very much about my knitting. But, never fear, a lot of knitting and yarn buying and knitting book buying have been going on.
And here’s the stash I have to work from for Blanket no. 3. Yes I do plan to knit another blanket. They are so easy and it’s so much fun to combine the colours. As you can see, the blankets are done in garter stitch (knit every row), and I knit back and forth on a size 3 100cm long circular needle. I use 2 strands of this sock or lace weight yarn.
The knitting book I ordered from Schoolhouse Press arrived today. It looks a winner.
Here’s a clip about the book:
Some of my knitting was done while James and 7 1/2 year old Ashley were trying out a tandem bicycle. The decision was made to buy it and they’ll pick it up later this week. Special blocks are being fitted on the pedals to help Ashley (and 5 1/2 year old sister Caitlin) reach that far and help in the cycling.
now I’m ready for a night off from the unpacking – I’ll take my Norwegian yarn recently purchased at The Acorn Yarn shop near University Village and start knitting a sleeveless sweater. The yarn is Falk Dalegarn, 100% wool (REN NY ULL), and the colour is……you guessed it – acorn – pictured above on the left hand side of the back row in the stash.
