There is always knitting on the go but at the moment, so unlike me, I am flitting between projects. Let me show you.
I found some 4 ply pure cotton in the charity shop £1 a ball and there is enough to knit myself another tunic which I have started. I mentioned that the arm holes on the previous one were a little bit tight so currently I am decreasing on every 4th instead of every other row.
I need to sit down and work out how the sleeves will fit in with this revision and when I can start decreasing more steeply.
So while I ponder the geometry I have cast on a calmingly repetitive scarf using Berroco's Bittersweet pattern. I had five balls of Hebrides pure wool 4 ply from The Isle of Harris Knitwear Co in my stash, 50g is going a long way so this could be something for Mr FF. The 20 row pattern is quite manageable whilst watching tv and anything involving a cable needles pleases me.
I discovered this week that my LYS is having a sale, 30% of all yarn. The lady told me not to panic as the sale will be going on for a while but I couldn't stop myself buying a couple of 100g balls of West Yorkshire Spinners lovely sock yarn. I've used this before in many shades so I was pleased to find these pretty soft tones and 200g might just be enough for three pairs of socks.
At just over £5 a ball this is splendid value and I shall be back in the shop a few times before the sale is over, like later today and tomorrow and any other time they are open. The official line is that I need yarn to take to Italy for the summer, the truth is that last time I went out there with lots of yarn I was very surprised to see how much I already had in the house. Stock control and remembering what I did a year ago are obviously not my strong points.
