quick inventory (with pics)
I still haven’t photographed my first scarf project, but chances are I’ll be wearing it if I ever meet you in the non-cyberworld.
Of course, I’m late to get to the next SF knitting night, so I’m just going to slam up some images of recent completions.
I was in such a hurry to start the mittenettes in the Weblinks section that I didn’t notice I bought the wrong size dpn’s at ImagiKnits.
No, Virginia, 7mm is not US size 7. Read labels more carefully.
It wasn’t a complete disaster, as evidenced when I reknit them on 8s. These are for Mr. Man’s oh-so-punk-15-year-old niece. Yes, it’s the same gauge yarn.
Proof of the joys of big-ass 15s and the joys of speed knitting, I busted out this scarf over two days. Can you see how the model’s lips really accent the piece?
Just some Key Lime Splash carried with a big wooly sale-rack yarn.
I hope my Secret Snowflake/co-worker recipient enjoys it. I was worried that it was too bulky and not drape-y enough… like a giant potholder cowl, but I’m hoping the texture and cuddle-y-ness make up for any design flaws. I promise my next scarf will be skinnier.
Now, I’m late… oh well. Take good care of Neptoon, boys.
