Finished Objects - Episode Three
God's truth, are we ever going to be done with these F.O.'s? Are we even certain that it was actually ME that knitted all this crap? Maybe I'm just stealing samples from the shop and passing them off as my own. That would be rather clever, wouldn't it?
First up, a store sample. This is Knitting Pure And Simple's ... ummm ... Child's Top Down Sweater? That sounds about right. Anyway, it's a sweater you knit from the top down. In large. In Brown Sheep's "Lanaloft" hand paint. This is the same yarn as Lamb's Pride but without the mohair; it's 100% wool. And the vinegar they used to set the dye with? Lingers. On. And on. And then on some more. I craved fish 'n chips the entire time I was knitting this.
Second item on the agenda, from the crazed brain of yours truly, the Chain Link Beanie. I love the cable on this little hat even if it is kinda fiddly. I may write up the pattern, I may not. I'm not so loving the pattern writing thing. It requires a certain amount of "thinking."
This may be the last one. Until tomorrow. This is the first stocking in my little Etsy shop. This will also be the LAST time you hear me mention my Etsy shop because I don't want this blog to turn into one long commercial. Of course if I go six months without a single sale, I may throw myself on your mercy but hopefully that won't happen. The link's in the sidebar. Back to the knitting!
