I’ve been knitting a lot lately, but not finding the time to blog or take photos. I finally set aside some time today and then I lost the long post I wrote. Ugh. I knit a Squarey (from Jess Hutchison’s out-of-print leaflet “Unusual Toys For You to Knit and Enjoy”) for my boyfriend’s birthday.
He loved it and so did I. So much so that I immediately cast on for a girlfriend for Squarey. I finished her body and then the yarn for my sweater came from Webs and I put her aside without any arms or legs.
I cast on for my sweater (Margot from Knitty Fall 09) with the US 5 needles called for without checking gauge. I realized one ball into the project that it was going to be 8 inches too small so I ripped and re-knit with US 6 needles and just tried it on for the first time today:
A perfect fit! I’m loving the yarn and the pattern and I’m hoping to wear it to Rhinebeck which is fast approaching. We shall see…
