Knitting update

blue messWhat, you may ask, is that blurry blue mess over there? It is my pathetic attempt to photograph a dark blue linen knitted object in the dark. I guess you will have to take my word for it that I am making progress on the Moss Grid Hand Towel. I am, in fact, on the ninth repeat of twelve so there is hope that it will be done soon. Of course then I have to start another, because one towel does not a wedding gift make.

In other knitting news I have been resisting temptation to start on any of a number of baby projects I have planned for some of the (at least) five babies I know currently in production. I really want to start on some socks, but instead have been focusing my in-school knitting on Avery, the sweater that I must finish for Bunny before he out grows it. What was I thinking making a sweater out of sock yarn?

I have been looking at the book YNotKnit. It looks great and may be the jump I need to really change over to continental. However since it looks like the family income will be dropping from two paychecks to one on October 20, I think I will hold off on any purchases for a while. Good thing I have a large stash so I can keep knitting! PS: anyone want to hire a JAVA programmer? I know one who is looking for a job…

  1. I love the color! Are there really sparklies in the yarn, or is that a product of the lighting?

  3. Does your camera have a macro mode? If so, that helps to focus on something closeup and it produces good detail. The blue is really pretty. What yarn are you using? A friend of mine would really like that color.

    Some people on the MD KAL have complained about the Euroflax, saying that it’s rough on their hands. If you’re using it, what do you think of it?
