Knitting Progress

Progress and anticipation

The first of my friend Kerry’s mittens is finished, and work underway on mitt 2. Next time I make mittens or gloves, I really should knit the left one first, because it would be so much easier to photograph – holding the camera in my left hand while taking a photo of my right is a touch challenging!


Kerry’s hand is a little longer than mine, so her fingers won’t be hidden!

Since Dad’s socks are finished, and Kerry’s mittens are almost finished, and my fisherman’s gansey will be finished soon, I’m now planning my next project/s. I desperately need respectable cardigans/jackets for winter; I feel the cold, but sometimes jumpers (pullovers) don’t work as well as cardigans for respectable dressing. Daniele at our LYS ordered in some Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran, and when i was in there yesterday I used the gift voucher I have and bought 10 balls of the quartz shade, and put another 10 balls aside to pick up later.


Now I just have to decide what pattern to use – I still haven’t found the perfect one, although I’m seriously contemplating the Bianca’s Jacket, with adaptations – longer, and straight fronts. I’ll knit up a sample in the lace pattern and see what I think.

    As a member of Bron’s writing group and one of the co-conspirators, I’m hugging myself over your reaction, Bronwyn. You were there for me (still are) during one of the toughest times of my life. You deserve no less than the total support of your friends in turn. We’re all cheering for you to sail through the op and recovery, to gift the world with more of your beautiful creations and winning words. Mucho hugs.

    Knit it in good health, Bron! I so wish I lived closer to J. so I could’ve fondled that superfine cashmere. She tormented me with glowing descriptions of how soft and wonderful and amazing and incredible it was… fondle it once for me, willya? ~ Aimless
