Instrument of torture

Different Lines finished! I’m really pleased with the way it drapes and the colours, daughter had it on most of yesterday evening. My friend who modelled in the Pics liked it too.

Can’t wait to find the right yarn to knit for myself.

So tried to knit a row of Queen of Spades (see previous blog) but not feeling it so yarn from stash is calling.

Bought this on my last USA trip along with several other unusual yarns in a little store called Great Balls of Yarn. Been waiting to find the right pattern and it looks like Calisto will be the one so I have got the instrument of torture out!

Well it could be a rack but no it’s a wool winder – Amish style, really easy to use and in no time 3 skeins are balls and we are ready to rock and roll.

So Calisto started 9mm needles so should be a fast knit so watch this space.

Finish Line in Sight!

Well I said Different Lines was an easy Knit and I’m on track for a PB and OR on this one. Started last week I’m on the last short row stripe and just have the border to do!! Daughter waiting patiently to try. Will be working flat-out this afternoon. The problem is which project to do next? There are several waiting.

The finish line did not materialise, final border half completed hey ho there is always today. Daughter’s work experience and training the dog seem to have taken over! Let me introduce you to Guinness a terrier cross adopted from Battersea earlier in the year, couldn’t think of a new name so it stuck but he looks like Dobbie to me now.
