sock! (crowd cheers)...I'll be casting on for that this week............the "weight" is over LOL! But from now until the end of time I will be using Minding My Own Stitches method of measuring for sock length. If I had used the method in the pattern it would have been way too big. Here's her method and I quote....
dishcloths for my son's housewarming present. What is up with these small dishcloths? Do these designers not wash dishes? I'll be designing my own after this...stay tuned for "Retired Computer Scientist Turns Washcloth Designer"....more to follow. Lots of purling in this one too.
shawl knitting and that was the same comment that had me chose this design for my first shawl. I could sit and work on this all day. I am on row 84 of 118 so it won't be long now! Except that each row gets longer and takes longer but with this project I will be sad to see it end.....I'll have to immediately start another one in order to prevent any lingering sadness. Don't worry, I've already "faved" a bunch more shawl patterns. :)
preemie hat. One more in a newborn size for boys and I will have August taken care of. As you can see, I am also out of yarn so I'll have to get some in another color this time to keep it interesting.
Bina....the first of many, I think, as I am having fun with this one too. I am not using the required yarn which is more a fingering weight. I'm using a worsted weight so it will be much larger but I also need to use larger eyes. I am at the point where the eyes need to be placed but I don't have any so I ordered a variety pack of black plastic safety eyes as I'm not sure what size to use. I ordered from an Etsy shop in Maryland called 6060. The price you see includes shipping so it might depend on where you live. This was the only shop I could find that sold a variety of sizes in one package. This will be handy for future projects too.
