Here’s my latest on-line pattern find, Debbie Bliss’ Lace and Bobble Jacket (a shout-out to Knitting Pattern Central for leading me to it!).
It hasn’t bumped Jade Empire or Silver Belle from their places in the queue, but it is schooched in there right behind them. I’m thinking that if/when I knit it, I’ll omit the bobbles on the body, which look a bit lumpy, and just work the ones along the edging.
Meanwhile, I’m making progress once again on the Origami Cardi now that we’ve hit the start-of-school-year meeting glut. Once one gets past the “Berries-in-a-Box” border stitch, there are long stretches of straightforward knittingâ€”perfect meeting fodder. I finished about six inches during a three-hour meeting yesterday.
I’ve also cast on a new pair of socks, working from Sensational Knitted Socks and using my all-time favorite, Skacel Trampoline Stretch. I worked the first leg on Monday, the heel flap, turn, pick-ups, and gusset decreases yesterday. The very first pair of socks I knit became a gift for my mother, since they didn’t fit me. I’m hoping this pair will be a keeper. (Now I just need to remember how to post on the SKS KAL page, so I can share the fun.)
