Knitting Update

It is high time that we had a knitting update, though truthfully there has been very little actual knitting this winter.

Projects deemed to be current:

  • Warriston: knitting complete, still in need of  armhole grafting and other finishing tasks
  • Mr L’s Sir Lancelot sweater – no further progress – back at armholes, front ribbing done
  • Ripplerock – making slow but steady progress. Body now at 213 stitches, leaving five body pattern repeats to go before adding the border.

Waiting blocking:

  • Lady Edith’s Hooded Scarf – will also need sewing together
  • The Pavonated  Curl
  • The pink and blue cashmere Rivington Cowl
  • The Colinette kit blanket

Not started:

  • the Cowled Capelet to be made from Colinette leftovers

In serious need of completion:

  • Windswept Shawl
  • Rivulet Jacket
  • Karen doily (but needs much tinking first!)

and oh, so many more UFOs and planned projects that I can’t possibly list them here and now!

My T-pins remain on the MIA list, so I am buying three more packs from Gill so that I can crack on and clear my blocking list. Given suitable weather, I hope to get everything done next week, save the blanket (which really will need a protracted spell of dry weather)

Plan of Action:

  1. Block the scarf, the curl and the cowl
  2. Finish Warriston – wash and block
  3. Work on Sir Lancelot when the light is good, continue the Ripplerock when things are gloomier – finish these two before starting/completing another project
  4. Next item to be completed: Windswept
  5. Next item to be started: Cowled Capelet

I shall need to do a lengthier survey soon.

I might have volunteered to run one or more knitting courses! Eep.

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle

    I am very interested if you are going to run some knitting courses.

      Early days yet – I have no idea what has been requested other than a generic heading of “knitting and sewing.” The S thing, I do not do.
