Weekend Knits

Posted by allie on February 21, 2007

For the past week, I’ve been working mostly on Wicked. I finished the pocket knit it onto the sweater, finished the seed stitch border and bound off the body. I’m moving right along. I still need to do the sleeves, but that won’t take long. Hoping to have this finished soon (I know I said that a week or so ago, too). The pose in this pic is pretty funky b/c I was talking on the phone while taking it.

I went away for the weekend and took a small project with me: Rutabaga from the Spring 07 Knitscene. And I finished it! And I love, love, love it!! I can’t stop touching it– I now love Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.

Pattern: Rutabaga from KnitScene Spring 07
Yarn: 1 1/3 skeins Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Teddy Bear (the name fits the color PERFECTLY!!!) See how much is left of the second skein?
Needles: KnitPicks Options US 10 1/2 , of course, and Clover Takumi 10 1/2 dpn for strap and 3-needle bind-off
Modifications: None- a very well-written pattern
Notes: I LOVE this bag and have plans to make another one as a gift to have on hand, but that probably won’t happen anytime soon.

Monthly Dishcloth February Exchange:

I received a beautiful package with two dishcloths, candy, note cards, and some beaded stitch markers.
Also, on the card, she wrote my name the same way I do (something I’ve never seen before and I got ridiculously excited):

Hope everyone has a great week!!
