It's definitely more quiet and less stressful without Sam in the house. Nevertheless we miss him terrible. The Vet called last night again. Sam's doing fine, although he rather walks the vet, when they go outside, than the other way around. That's my boy! ;o)
I made myself a second pair of mittens. They had to be a fast knit and warm. They are both. This is the same wool I've used for my hat, knit on 5mm needles. The cuff is made with a twisted K1, P1. I'm very pleased.
This hat is for David. This one's made with Berroco's Ultra Alpaca double stranded, so it's warmer and I've used 5.5mm needles so the hat would be and is tenser. It's still quite stretchy with the K2, P2 pattern. It fits him well. he's already got a scarf witch goes with this hat.Look what I've unearthed a few days ago. I was rummaging through my stash, when I found a bag full of Noro Kureyon and the first row of my Noro Kureyon blanket I've started back in April/May this year. I'm on the third row right now. I will take a better picture of it, when I'm on the 6th row or so, otherwise there's not a lot to see. It's my TV knitting now, once again just plain old garter stitch, mitered squares. Fun!
Just finished square # 3 of 63 for my Magic Mosaic Blanket. Only 60 more to go! ;o) Think - long term!
