Yesterday afternoon I was over at Carrie’s house spinning. We could see a bit of the spectacular sunset through the windows. Imagine my surprise when I downloaded knitting pictures this morning and there were several more than I was expecting. Our house has an excellent view of sunsets and Jason must have taken these pictures. Sandy, I hope you were sky watching yesterday!
Now that the beading project is done I’m back to knitting. Here’s the first Jaywalker finished. It’s a little loose on my foot so when these are complete I’ll send them down to my sister Leslie to see if they might fit her. The second sock is cast on and I finished the ribbing last night so they should really get going this morning at knitting.
Here is one of the secret knitting projects I was working on. This kept me busy over Thanksgiving while Mom was here. This is knit from the homespun llama (the roving I bought at Rhinebeck) on size 5 needles. The yarn was more or less sportweight (and I really do mean more or less… or perhaps I mean more *and* less). I snagged the stitch pattern out of The New Knitting Stitch Library and added a garter stitch border. Bonnie pointed out that it looks like a trident in one direction. I wanted something a little bit dressy but soft and pleasant to touch. This was a birthday present for Carrie. The rest of the secret knitting will have to remain a secret now until after Christmas.
