So when we started the scarf exchange I was in the process of moving and did not have my new address yet, so instead I had my scarf sent to my parents house.
I knit in a very odd way, I call it half continental. I have the yarn in my left hand, and throw it with my left hand as well. So it is not english, and not continental....somewhere half way there.
So, I have been doing many hats and I have a new favorite way to making them. I converted the Ski Hat pattern from Son of Stitch 'n' Bitch from straight needles to circulars.
So, I finally got my scarf exchange scarf sent off. I went to my parent’s house on Tuesday and my father sent it off for me, I am young, I have never figured out the whole post office thing.
I gave up on the gloves...they just were making me mad. I will get back in the mood later to try to make gloves, but for now I am working on my second sock.
I have been making the Beer gloves from Son of Stitch n Bitch for the last week....and I hate them. The pattern in the book makes NO SENSE, and has numerous errors and no errata sheet.
So my second and final adventure into lace (at least for a while) is this pattern from yarnover.net like the last one. This is for my other Grandmother.
I am not happy with this hat. I followed the instructions for the decreases and I think it is about 10 rows too long. This will be for my Father for Christmas.
I blocked my Flacon lace thing, and decided to give it to my Grandmother for Christmas.
So I am stuck in my apartment, and it rained today washing away all the snow in Corvallis. I can not go home though, the hour drive makes a big difference in the weather.
