Well, once again I'm reunited with technology that lets me get pictures off the camera. It's been a busy couple of weeks, not least because I haven't been home much. But to console me for missing all that house and yard work, I've been packing a heavy load of knitting. That's what finally allowed me to finish the mitered square baby blanket.
wrote some excellent instructions. But since I mainly had pastel solids I decided to borrow an idea from quilting and worked from the center out so I could assemble the squares in an overall pattern.
I also released the Celtic Cable Sweater from time out, ripped back the collar, re-knit it smaller, and sewed the ends of the zipper back in. From the front:
And from the back:
Naturally it's now too warm to wear it. But I'm looking forward to wearing it in the fall.
Then there was the blue beret. Sometimes you just need a project you can whip through in a couple of days.
And then, because Toni-in-Idaho was beaming sock thoughts at me...okay, and because I needed a project that didn't require a large bag to carry it around, I cast on socks. You will note that they are neither gray, nor solid, nor pastel. I thought at this point I needed a little color in my life.
So there it is, the last couple of weeks in yarn. Astonishing how much you can get done when you have a lousy internet connection, isn't it?
