Lest you think I’ve only been buying yarn and not knitting, herein lies knitting content.
I’ve knit past the point of froggage on the SKB and have begun the lace panel. I’ve completed two rounds of the repeats, about one inch, and have two more inches to go. Before switching to the smaller needles which the pattern calls for US size 4s, I swatched using size 3s. It was huge, so I ended going down to size 1s for the lace panel. Needless to say, it’s going slowly. But the lace is starting to peek out and it looks lovely so far. Here’s a close up view.
I also have been working a bit here and there on Clapotis and it’s slowly getting a bit longer. I’m looking forward to finishing this one because I think I’ll actually wear it because the yarn is so soft. The color pooling looks much more noticeable in the picture than in real life. I don’t think it’ll be so apparent when it’s wrapped around my neck.
Did I tell you I got caught up in indie fever? I joined Scout’s Indie Swag Club for 3 months and here’s my first month’s swag: a great indie designer bag, nicely lined and made from a great graphic print fabric, and a skein of Scout’s very own.
This colorway is called b. marie, I think named after the great designer Bonne Marie Burns. Have you seen her newest design, Ariann? It’s on my to-do list; only I just don’t know when.
