Back!

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 6:28 pm

We have been back almost exactly a week and in 10 hours our luggage will have been back a week as well… It was a nice cruise, with a number of new ports of call for us. Photos and details on that in another post, for now, how did I do on my knitting list?

  1. Finish Turkish Pattern Hat for B (almost done) — done!
  2. make a Thorpe for dad — did nothing, nadda, zip, zero
  3. second Jacobean sock — made the toe
  4. major progress on Bunny’s Tomten — see #2
  5. Baby Bolero for Baby S — see #2
  6. Anouk for Hanna (if the yarn arrives from Webs) — the yarn arrived, and I made major progress, got the front and back knit. Since we have returned I knit the neck band and started the first pocket.

A little more on the one thing I actually completed. The Turkish-Patterned Cap for B. The last thing I knit for him was a Dr. Who scarf in the late ’80s. This has a similar scale problem, but is out of much nicer yarn and shows a higher level of craftsmanship.

As I wrote on Ravelry, I am inordinately proud of this. The color work came out just right, the tension is perfect. This has made me consider other fair-isle projects! Unfortunately, it came out too long so B can wear it with the slightly puffed top look… ah well. Full details can be found here and on the Rav.

  1. Well done! I have almost totally abandoned my knitting, as I suddenly discovered books and embroidery. Strange. Your projects look wonderful, making me want to look in my UFO pile (I cannot buy any more yarn!!).
