Yop post # 21

This week has been pretty good to me :) Not only did I get some work done on the suprise H in the beginning of this week but I also got some work done on a few other things (school mwas out since Wed.) and I didn't have to cook dinner Twice! Yay!

Today is my day to cook. All Day. Then tomorrow we get to eat Turkey potpie (which I will call chicken potpie to make "Midget think it's not just Turkey again) and other variations till it's all gone :)

Here's what I've been working on.


I've started the decreases. Yay!
If she doesn't like it (unlikely) I'll wear it. I love this pattern. I did get quite jealous of the sweater and 2 hats someone else is knitting in this group. You know who you are :). But I got over that pretty quick. Especially when I saw that huge ball of ends she had to weave in. I probably wont ever be that fast but since it's the knitting I enjoy I can live with that.

I've gotten to the 3rd wedge of my sock heels. Lastly I've started a mystery/contest knit with my group. All I know so is that I need #2 DPN's and #9 straights and that Ethreal (?) is what we're going for. Plus beads. Can't show a pic till it's finished though :(.

Oh and I want to make something from this yarn I bought. It's a mesh but not like Katia with the thin and thick edges, just mesh. I don't really like the potato chip scarves, too dainty for me, but I would love to make some kind of shawl or wrap. Here's the yarn.

Brown, Beige, Cream, and Dusty Pink. though you can't tell from this pic
Next week...I'll detail the changes I've decided I have to make to my list. Till then...

How I am envious of your hat. I am so scared to try anything that changes colors like that. Yours is just beautiful. As for your new yarn......Will be anxious to see what you decide to make with it.

The horses look great! I make "chicken" pot pie too!

Faith said...

Your hat is gorgeous, very, very clever. I can't imagine making something when you don't know what it is.....wouldn't help me who likes to make up the pattern by what I think it should say!

Do you think if you used some green food colouring it could be frog pot-pie?

The design looks awesome, wayyyyyyyyy too intricate for me, but awesome.

Ruth said...

Love your design, the colours really compliment each other and yay to decreasing lol.
Your yarn looks very interesting and I can't wait to see what your going to do with that !

Ooh!! If you think of anything else to with that frilly meshy yarn, would you let me know? I am so tired of those frilly scarves... I have made way too many of them.... I wait with much anticipation...

Dorothy said...

Wow, your knitting is awesome. Have you had a look on the Katia website for a pattern for your mesh yarn? I made a few scarves with their yarn and they turned out lovely - the yarn you have looks similar.

Great Fair Isle. You're making this for your niece right who loves horses?
I have yet to try another FI but I had so much knitting up this baby giraffe hat by Audry Nicklin. And it solidified knitting w/two hands that I learned from a color class.
