First of all, I’d like to thank Sunsetseasanity (of the artismysanity blog) for the advice on the camera. I had to play around with it (and turn off the ‘idiot proof settings’) but I think I can find the right light level now. Next step will be to replace my tripod (lost with the last camera).
Here’s the beginning of the square for the Chosen One project. I’m using this to knit down stash, so it’s a hodgepodge of yarns. I’ve got some old Lion Jiffy for the square, a little Cascade 220, Lion Trellis and some ‘mystery yarn’ held together for the letter. I’m working a garter stitch border around the square, and a moss stitch border around the letter. I’m knitting across the letter rather than bottom to top, so that I won’t have to break the yarn for the multiple parts of the H. We’ll see if I’ve overcomplicated things, but so far, so good. I’m half tempted to frog back and make the letter a bit bigger. I’d better think on it a bit and keep working on something else in the meantime. I expect to be spending a chunk of time in a waiting room today, so I should get a fair amount done.
Current WIPS include the mini wrist warmers, the tea cozy and a cat bed made from recycled plastic bags. The tea cozy is the most portable, so that’s probably what I’ll take with me.
Speaking of the Chosen One project, I just realized that I’d never posted the link to the KnitNotWar 10o0 project. Check out the installation, it’s lovely. My ten were all tan and brown.
