basket, beanie, cables, crochet, hat, inside out, make-over, pimpelliese, pixel stitch, Shawl, socks, travelling cables, yarn floats
After a rather slow start, and a restart, as I found a little error on my Pimpeliese shawl, I finished it . It is a super great pattern, and knitted very quickly once I got the hang of it. The weather was not to warm, and I had to wait for a bit of sunnier days before I could block it and make sure it dried. But it is done! And turned out pretty neat.
I also finished the Travelling Cable Hat beanie I was working on. Super pattern, specially since I really love knitting cables.
I had given this old basket of mine a make-over some time ago, but could not find the right handles I was looking for. But being persistent, I found these handles, and they seem pretty okay on the basket. Now I can use it again, and carry my WIP’s around in it.
And of course, what is knitting without having a pair of socks on the needles. This is my first “big” colourwork knit, and I am enjoying it tremendously. I am knitting the socks inside out, which is pretty funny, but it is the only way I could figure out how to ensure the floats are even and not to tight. They are for my daughter and she has tried them on a few times now to ensure the fit is still good.
