don’t do it in the dark

by on May.11, 2016, under Blog

I have not been knitting for some months now (since November last year) and while we were away visiting family in Wellington a couple of weeks ago I started a wee neck and shoulder warmer. It does feel so good to be knitting.

Last night I began the feather and fan section whilst my Best Beloved watched Avatar.

This morning I continued my knitting after I had been out to check on the wee goats.

And this morning, you guessed it, I discovered that I had knitted one fan section with not 6 yarn overs but with 9. How stupid is that.

Don’t listen to Avatar while knitting.

Don’t knit in the semi dark.

Good idea.

Now I have to tink back 4 rows to fix the problem and then begin my feather and fan again, but it will have to wait as have jobs to complete outside.

But when I am back in again I shall tink and then knit again

Yes yes yes.

A timely reminder – pattern to come

by on Nov.17, 2014, under Blog

I have been prodded a little but quite gently by Kristin. She asked about a Cowl/poncho/wimple or oversized cowl that can be worn over the shoulders like a poncho pattern that I was working on. Yes I did create the cowl pattern but didn’t extend it to the poncho. Cowl – pattern to come

I did explore the wimple and the cowl and the neck warmers and all the other names for it that I could come up with but didn’t create the pattern and that was in 2010.

Cowl / little Poncho or Wimple

Thank you for asking Kristin. Life has been so hectic these past 4 years so that keeping track of my pattern promises has not been very good. Hectic as we moved countries and hemispheres, we have retired to a steep windy property and are developing an orchard and vege garden of a reasonable size. We have 2 grandchildren living next door as well. So life is hectic and it is sweet. I am knitting all the time – well all the spare time, but haven’t been working hard on the patterns.

I am going to say that I am on to it – and I am I really am. Thank you Kristin.

What is a Wimple?

How Now Brown Cowl and Capelet

I am delighted with the Estonian Slanted Rib pattern, simple to knit, simple to remember, simple to make interesting and knit in the round so it is also simple to finish.

And there will be a pattern soon.

wondering why it isn’t cold enough

for Aucklanders to wear cowls

So easy to wear and they don’t get caught in the wind or in the spokes of a bicycle wheel. Now in Europe in winter it is another story.

Of course
