I went on a couple of trips over the holidays and hadn't posted anything in a while. My latest happenings knitting-wise:
- I finished up some swatches for a learn to knit correspondence course from the Knitting Guild of America. Here's the link if anyone's interested in reading more:
I'm anxious to get back the critiques. Some of my ribbing was a little loose so I won't be surprised if I get dinged for that.
-I'm working on seaming together the pieces for this pattern from the Oct 2005 issue of Knitting Simply:
So far I've got the shoulders seamed and attached both sleeves. Here's a pic of my work in progress:
I'm using cheapo Wool Ease Thick & Quick since the main objective is to practice my finishing skills.
-Anyone heading to Stitches West at the end of February? I signed up for a few classes, some of which require you to knit up swatches ahead of time so that's next on the knitting to-do list.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy holidays!
