Last night I began the night weaving in ends on the first mitt of the Warmeez! It went really well. I like the cabling and the seed stitch. Granted you can kind of tell where the DPNs joined. I still haven’t gotten the whole ‘laddering’ issue completely resolved. It’s more like the stitches are looser there or something. Any tips for that? I pull the first stitch on the new DPN tight as well as the 2nd, but I still end up with this small flaw. Anyways….I digress.
There’s some photos to tie you over till I get the 2nd one complete. Granted I haven’t even cast it on yet. That may or may not happen tonight at knitting. I’m guessing not as I have quite a bit of laceweight to wind up and then K in our guild will be showing off Fair Isle Knitting. I’m hoping I can learn how to do that because I picked my 10th Project for 10 in 2010!
This last weekend I was hoping to organize the yarn and the books and the other crafty things in my office. That didn’t happen. I need to come up with a plan. A good one that isn’t going to cost me a lot. I think I might do some Craigslist research to see if I can find a cheap book shelf that isn’t too tall or wide and maybe get some cute bins/baskets to store things in. Anything would be better than the mess I have in the closet at the moment. I can’t find ANYTHING in there and it’s not at all organized. We’ll see how this plan goes.
The Pretty Thing Cowl has been sitting since Sunday. I haven’t had any quiet time for me to work on it in the last couple days, I expect this weekend I’ll get it done. Then I will need to get some blocking materials so that I can block it. Thank goodness I have quite a few Joann’s coupons to use up this month so that will help. This is assuming they have anything that would work for blocking. I know they have T-pins, but I was thinking I’ll need wires too.
Well that’s all I have for updates at this point. Happy knitting!
