I swear I’ve been knitting. Finished a scarf.
Multidirectional scarf, two balls Noro Keruion (spelled wrong, I know). Knit on size 8.
Knitted another bunny, this one with intarsia (sp?). Never done intarsia before. Easier than I thought.
Um… the Mate taught himself to knit. I lent my nifty new needles to somebody and they bent them. Been spinning at the Ren Faire.
Oh! Here’s something. At the faire I tried something new; knitting with BIG needles. Really big. Actually, they were pikes from the weapon’s rack. No in-progress pictures, but here’s the final product:
There I am, looking silly, holding a ‘swatch’ knit on pikes bigger around than my wrists. The burly guy behind me? Held the pikes so I could manipulate the ends. Yeah, I had some trouble with the edges, but I got the hang of it eventually.
I made the shirt I’m wearing. Hee! First bit of costuming. And I made my apron, but you probably can’t see it well.
That’s all for now. The Intarsia bunny will be photographed eventually.
