Well, while I may not have been posting much lately, lots of little projects and one large project, have been made around here. So over time I will share those projects with you. These projects are also shown in My Ravelry Page too - AussieMaria is my Ravelry username.
For now, the weather is warm and very sticky and humid with all the rain we have been having. So projects that are small and quick are ideal. I have been wanting to challenge myself, so this end .....
I am comfortable with a hook
I am comfortable with two needles
But, why oh why would I try Torture
Sewing a project together at the end is not a problem to me. Its part of my accomplishing and finishing the item.
So from the photo I am past the torture zone (BTW its not socks, but a babies beanie). And I was a couple of rows into the pattern. And I started worrying. I have knitted with this yarn before and loved its self-patterning (sorry no photos as it was gifted before blogging). And I started thinking that this particular pattern would not be seen with this yarn (now that word leads me to another thought), and just then I noticed ...... a dropped stitch
Ok enough, so it got frogged and became this from two needles
The yarn is Opal, either 5 or 6 ply.
The pattern was my own
So depending on the sex of the babies that are turning up this winter where it will go
Back to that thought above - until the last couple of years I only used the term "wool" for what I was using, no matter what it was acrylic etc. Now I am a bit of a yarn snob and would only use wool anyway, so there was no problem. Now I am expanding a bit (but still DISLIKE acrylics, LOVE natural fibres, except Mohair) I have slowly been changing my terminology to "yarn".
What term do you use?
Bye for now
P.S. - Last day to get your name down for the P.I.F. here
