a 5x15" strip for the WTW blanket over at Knit the Classics that Amanda will be putting together again. and (this was done at Stitches but I never got a pic of it) another 5x5 sq for Warming Grace. If you want to knit fair isle with cotton, this Manos Stria is wonderful cotton to use.
Lizzie Update - Front and Back complete
you can see the difference in the spacing on the darts between the front and the back. The front I probably moved too close together, but when I hold it up they are ok, and infinitely more attractive than the wider spacing of the back darts.
So, in September, my Plan (ah yes, I have to have one of those) is to maroon myself on Sleeve Island. I have sleeves to knit for
- the (Neglected) red cotton cardi
- the Sockotta baby cardi
- the black alpaca silk Drops cardi
Meanwhile, I really really want to cast on for one if not both of the Starmore Arans I want to knit this fall - one for dh and one for ds#1, and I'd better cast on for 2 double knit hats. Yes, ds#2 has started singing a similar refrain as dh - only it goes like this "am I ever going to get my hat?"
Once I get the two hats done, and have built myself a raft to get off sleeve island, Then I can move on.
if I start to swim off, feel free to remind me....sleeve island is the order of the day. Now I really must get off the computer so that I can get something done.
