At The Knitting GarageI am plodding along on this shawl; just two more rows to go and then the edging. By next week I should be blocking this and I think it will look very attractive in the store :)
As I said before: This is a great pattern to use up any left-over light weight yarn for the accent colors.
At HomeI have not been knitting much at home; I spent some time sitting with my son who ius knitting me new fingerless mittens after his cat ate my last pair and knitting on the hood for Matthew's All-In -One.
Other than that I re-did one summer top:
This is how I changed it:
- I picked up and knitted 64 stitches around each armhole on four US# 6 needles.
- Then I k2, p2 for five rows , then bound off loosely in pattern.
|This is how it used to look (2011)|
|left armhole done, one more to go|
|and this is how it looks now :)|
