Last Sunday I sat down and did as much finishing as I could manage during the core block of cartoons on Fox. (7:30PM-10PM,King of the Hill,Simpsons,Family Guy,etc.) I seamed the shoulders,then picked up and knit the button band and the collar. Still to do:seaming the sides and sleeves,and knitting the other side of the button band.
That’s it,uh,right there in the big tub.
Since I have to take off my glasses and peer real close to do this sort of thing,it’s really only suited to Sunday nights. So I’ll be finishing the finishing (I hope) this coming Sunday night.
In the mean time,I’ve started a teapot cozy. Because,you know,I have teapots. And they get cold. Shut up.
This is Fiber Trends pattern Braided Cable Tea Cozies. Knitting it in blue Cascade 220 –sorry,the tag is way over there. I’ll get you the shade number later.
This is a very well-written pattern,but I’ve just gotten to the complicated bit where you have to pay attention. I don’t want to pay attention,I want to watch movies. Ah well,one must soldier on.
And finally we have the Embossed Leaves sock,from the fall 2005 (I think) issue of Interweave Knits. I’m still enjoying this pattern,but again,one must pay attention.
What’s a knitter to do?
