What's On the Needles

Here's what I've been up to during the various play-off games this month.

Blue simple square-necked cardigan, out of a really soft merino-alpaca wool. The construction is different, as its worked side-to-side. The body is just about done, and then I need to do the sleeves. It's deadly dull knitting because its all garter stitch, but it's my tv-watching knitting where I don't need to look at what I'm doing. I found some beautiful handmade enamel buttons for this.

Purple cotton triangle shawl. I just finished this, and need to block it. Blocking involves briefly soaking the garment, then stretching and pinning into place to dry. It will even out the lace stitches, make the edges lie flat, and make the eyelets really stand out.

Lavender silk tank top with lace detail. I started this over the weekend. It's knit in the round, so there will be minimal seaming, yay! There will be another lace panel at the neckline, and if I have leftover yarn I might do some lace short sleeves. Again, blocking will make the lacework more prominent.

Next up is a dark green sweater for Dan, his request. Still looking for the right yarn.

Bonus shot of my lunch! Lobster salad, yum.

Indeed - just beautiful, Amy.

Lunch looks pretty good too.

sandrac:

Gorgeous colours, Amy!

Marcia:

Very nice - all of my knitting it seems is mindless tv watching knitting. I used to do more complicated things, and I keep thinking I could try again.

Yep, nice looking lunch, too.
