I know it's been awhile since I posted. I blame allergies and rainy weather. ;-) I did get alot of knitting done. I've only got 1 picture, the rest tomorrow. These are my son's Regia cotton
He loves them. One of my knitting buddy gave me the yarn, which I believe she bought in Germany. This son wears socks all year round, so these cotton ones should be great in the summer. And for the first time I tried to match them. I did good until the toe. I decreased more on the last one, so it's a little shorter. But the important part is that he loves them and has picked out the yarn for the next pair.
I've also fallen in love with 2 patterns.
1. Bonne Marie's new SCOOP du JOUR
. I need to get ink for my printer before I buy this pattern. I was wondering if it would look cool to do the ribbing in a different color. Any thoughts?
2. Lily Chin's easy lace shawl
. My knitting buddy gave me some very yummy yarn for my birthday last year and I've been debating what pattern to use. The yarn is Celestial Merino
by Lucy Neatby
. I love the yarn and colors and wanted the perfect pattern. I've looked at other shawl patterns, but I think this will be a good one since I can just knit until I run out of yarn. Now I just need to call my LYS and see if they have the pattern.
I love your comments. I laughed about Felicia's
idea to start a Rent-A-Son-So-You-Can-Knit business. They are just getting into the whole making money for odd jobs thing. This weekend they were picking dandelions at my parents house. And Jennifer
, I am using size 7.00mm (10.75) needles for my Phoebe Bamboo. The pattern calls for 6.5mm (10.5) and these are the closest I have.
I'm off to get laundry and knitting done. The sun is finally out again, so I'm going to attempt to get some pictures of other FO's.
