Thursday

cramming in some knitting time

Now that the bunny's have taken off I only have my nights to cram in a bit of knitting.

I spotted this striped shawl at Interweaveknits and thought Yum I like that!




Its called Candy Striped Kerchief. I've knitted just over a meter in length and started the decreases. Fast, fun and not too much to concentrate on. What more could a midnight knitter want?

Already I can see myself knitting this in purple and green or orange and purple...or red and white........

A few weeks ago whilst in Ravelry in my Tim Burton knitting group I spotted an add for Jaquelyn Landry's Burtonesques needless to say 1 second later I had the the pattern downloaded and printed!

I've my eye on the Letterman and Zeebad , but for now I've enough on my plate!

The Burtonesque's are not for mindless knitting as you have to do a bit of counting!


I've only used a cheap wool as i couldn't find a nice wool in the right colours...at spotlight:(

I chose to knit it in pencil grey colours....F and 2B!!

I think the striped kerchief is wonderful, it has a kind of animation feel to it. I know that sounds strange!!! The actual pattern picture looks Cat in the Hattish to me. Nice armwarmers in pencil colours!!!!!

I do feel a little woozey looking at the stripes sometimes.
