…just tell you about this
Hypotenuse by Anne Hanson
I’m continuing to respond to the urge to knit my handspun.
This is the Merino/Mohair blend that I named Gill’s Delight. It’s fantastic to knit with. So soft.
Easy pattern, large-ish needles, fast progress.
I’m going to love this. I know.
And here’s a sneak preview of my Beanie Frenzy. I have knitted five so far – three in the Merino yarn that J gave me and two in the Noro Kureyon left over from Mr L’s Pine Cone Scarf.
I still have to decide what to do in the way of embellishments.
The Noro ones are really lovely just as they are, so I probably will leave those plain and simple.
- My 7mm needles haven’t arrived yet, so my Urchin plans have come to naught.
- The Swallowtail Shawl has been tinked and restored to the correct number of stitches and is poised to go forwards again but I still have a needle crisis there. The replacement needles are only slightly longer than my bamboos – bad enough – but their flexibility makes them useless for p5 tbl. I desperately need some 40cm needles of rigid construction. It’s that or bite the circular bullet.
- Next up – a rash of fingerless glove (mitts) knitting in readiness for this winter, when it seems likely that the heating will be off more often than it is on.
