Despite the blog silence, I've been pretty busy with knitting. As you can see, I've been on a Calorimetry roll. Once I figured out the short row thing, these knit up pretty quickly. I love working with the 127 Print and seeing how the color changes come out. I've already given one to my niece and one to my s-i-l. My s-i-l has short hair, so she wears it as a neck warmer. I figure I'll knock out a few more of these for Christmas (I have 3 sisters).
This hat was knitted in Noro Kureyon (can't remember what number) for my favorite jazz DJ in the world. Ron is a great guy who knows a ton about jazz, classical music, opera and is just a swell person. I made the hat a bit too big but told him how to reblock it to get it smaller.
I'm also working on a Presto Chango baby sweater for a coworker. Baby hasn't arrived yet, so I've still got time to screw up the lacework in the front panel! Not my area of expertise. It's a fun knit, though. And the Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton is so soft and wonderful to work with. Like buttah.
And, of course, I've added to the stash (sorry, no photos of that). I bought some Queensland Kathmandu Tweed to make the Logan shawl in the Winter issue of IK. I'm also making a friend some Subway Mittens by Subway Knitter from the same issue. I'm making those out of Mista Alpaca Worsted to match a scarf that I made for a fundraising auction. Her lovely husband bought her the scarf and I told her I'd make mittens to match. And how useful, as she is a subway rider!
I'm also hoping to make Red Sox socks for my 2 sons for Christmas. Think I can get this all done?? I'll have to stay up later and stop burrowing under the covers.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
