Okay, so in the kitchen I just knocked my camera off the counter and it won’t work. Lots of clicking & whirring noises. I suppose it’ll have to be sent in this time. I could use an old camera to take pics of the finished sweaters & hats. sigh.
I also suppose that means I am not worthy to have my dslr. I could knit a cozy for it so it’s got a little shock absorption.;o)
I finished 2 of the Drops Garnstudio Sweaters. One using Rowanspun Bulky in a dark green and one using Patons Shetland Chunky in Earth Brown. 4+ balls each. Not much yarn considering how fantastically it fits!
I finished the green one first, after reknitting the back 3 times to get the size/gauge correct. In my stash of vintage sewing items I found a set of 4 buttons that were perfect!
This is the true color of the yarn. I love it! I will get some better outdoor pictures soon hopefully.
The brown one is finished but I am waiting for my buttons to come from Etsy.
This sweater was so fast to knit that I completed all pieces on the 9 hour drive home from our Thanksgiving in Reno. Had it sewn together that night. Now it’s just the buttons. I can’t wait for them to arrive.
On to other projects.
I have finished another zeebee (or 2).
This one I used Patons Rumor yarn that I got on sale at Michaels.
The gauge was so large that I only had to cast on 26 sts and do 5 wrapped sts. It’s large enough for the largest head with the negative ease. Into the Christmas pile it goes!
I have to say that I am worried this Holiday season is going to go by too fast. I love the Holidays. I love Christmas, the parades, the shopping. This year we will be spending our week before Christmas in Disneyland. My birthday in Disneyland! I am so excited for it I can hardly wait. We’ve never taken the kids when the Park is decorated for Christmas. That will be fantastic to see with them! I need to make us matching beanies. We decided that it’ll be easier to find & keep eachother if we all have matching hats. I am thinking Zeebees in red/white/grey. The only thing is that I am not sure the stripes will look alright. I would like to do stripes every 2 rows I think. We’ll see once I get one going. I may end up doing a simple knit striped hat, JCrew style.
I teach my last class of the year tonight, the Zig Zag Modular Scarf. It’ll be a fun class, it’s a fun knit!
