First, we have My Constant Companion. It's finished, except for the weaving in of ends and felting. This thing is h.u.g.e. I am going to have to put my faith in the felting gods and trust that the size will come out just right.
I'll let you in on a little secret. The I-cord bind off almost did me in...Not the fact that there were three rows of I-cord bind off. I noticed, after I completed the first row and was well into the second, that on exactly half - the first half - of the first row, I had not knitted into the back loops. Therefore, that nice little bottom chain was missing.
I contemplated frogging back and fixing it for about a day. Thankfully, I did not dig in and start ripping, because some friends who are heavy into the crochet (Hi MA, MJ and MS!) told me to just lay a chain across those stitches. So...I did.
You can hardly tell - and when it felts, you won't be able to tell at all. Squee!
Next, we have a group picture. From L-R, we have the Louisa Harding Shawlette, that is very close to completion. There's a little dress I started 2 days ago for a baby gift. (Shhh...don't tell.) I cast on the third item - a pair of Fetchings, last night. For weeks now, every time we go to a STARS game, I put on my navy blue mitts and think, "I really need some STARS green mitts." To top it off, oftentimes, I am sitting there wearing my hand-knitted-by-me STARS green shrug out of Cascade 220 wool - of which, I have leftover yarn. Finally, it hit me, so I cast on!
(Click on the pic to make it larger and you can see everything better.)
Now, if I can get that housework done...
Merry Karma out.
