My bloggy hiatus is still in effect, but I have some things to share; so, I thought I'd put them out there.
I recently returned from a little trip that involved knitting. I will tell y'all all about it very soon. Monday's picture had something to do with it. I will not be giving specifics about the picture, though, because what happens on Tancook Island, stays on Tancook Island...sorry.
While on said adventure, I made three hats.
The Tancook Hat - a Lucy Neatby pattern, using Kauni yarn and 8mm circulars:
A hat for Barrie - an improvised pattern using MacAusland's Woollen Mills 3-ply medium naturals yarn and 4.5mm needles:
A hat for Patsy - another improvised pattern, using Briggs & Little Softspun yarn and 4.5mm needles:
Barrie and Patsy owned the cottage where I stayed during my adventure. They are marvelous people who happen to be from Massachusetts and they happen to spend several months of the year at their cottage in Nova Scotia.
I finished a gift except for grafting the toes. (Hence the not-so-artistic, artistic shot...) I used Froehlich Wolle Special Blauband and two 2.25mm circular needles:
I did finish another project, but I don't have a picture of it, and it is currently residing in Nova Scotia. I hope to be receiving a shot of it soon, at which time, I will share it with y'all.
Since I didn't do a WIP Wednesday post this week, I am going to go ahead and show two partially completed projects. First, I am so close and yet so far away from finishing the Tara socks.
They are my April 2012 socks...so what's a few more weeks? I think I have about forty rounds left to go...
And then, there are the September 2012 socks, aka Pillars. The heel flap is next:
Don't ask me about the August 2012 socks. They've been banished to the corner like a naughty school child. I don't really know why, except that I do not like the needles they are on and need to finish the Tara socks to use those.
So, that's me...How about you?
