Project Progress

Posted on: September 16, 2007

I’m doing ok on the Summertime Tunic, about as ok as Ireland are in the Rugby World Cup! I started this as my Rugby World Cup KAL project. It’s an easy knit, but I’m finding it a bit boring, all this stocking stitch.

It’s not a great picture, but you get the idea.
I’ve also started another project – I’m calling it Socks For Alice. It’s just a basic Regia sock pattern that I was given for free in Liberty, London by a lovely sales assistant when I was there in June. I’m using the ball of Regia Cotton Surf Color that I got for €1.95 in my LYS recently.
I finished sock No 1 this morning:
I hate Kitchener stitch. But it is very effective. Aren’t the stripes lovely?
I went through all of my knitting magazines and books last night to pick out projects that I definitely or maybe want to knit so I can get an idea of yarn I want to purchase when I descend on the LYS in Orlando next month. I put them all into my ravelry queue. It was great fun going through them all and lusting after some of them. I had forgotten about some of the patterns I really liked. So far I have quite a list, I have a feeling I may have to post home some of the yarn to myself as the suitcases mightn ‘t have enough room after all of the usual purchases!
I hope to complete the summertime tunic this week along with the second Sock for Alice and then I really don’t know what I’ll begin on.
I was really hoping to be able to knit some part of my Hallowe’en costume (we’re off to Disneyland on Hallowe’en night) but I haven’t been able to come up with anything. Ah well, it’s probably for the best, I’ll roast in the heat!
I also need a project that can be knit on 3.25mm circulars, as I have bought a set for my plane knitting.
Have you seen the Fall issue of Knitty? Some really lovely patterns this time round. I love the Muir, Mr Greenjeans and Cherie Amour. The Woodins are just as cute as hell!
