I'll start with the latter - I'm knitting with the colinette Jitterbug 'Bright Charcoal', which is keeping me amused with the colours despite a stocking stitch sock. I'm using 2.25mm needles which is getting what I think will be a hardwearing fabric - didn't like the gappiness in 2.5mms.
I've started the Pomotamus mitts in more potluck 'earths' from Cherry Tree Hill - these are for C's boss, Sapna, who is lovely and always admires my knitted things - so deserves these.
And - I've finished those Koigu socks! (Two minutes ago, haven't woven in ends. And probably never will - all the socks I've made myself have these ends to tuck in when I wear them!)My favourite 2.25mm needles, and my own mistake rib pattern, using Widdershins toe-up adapted by Mel of Cabezalana for other sizes.
onto the corset! I have this beautiful one from Fairy Gothmother
that C gave me for Christmas. I also have this Sophia sock yarn, 100% cashmere, from (of course) Poshyarn,
which I think goes rather beautifully. A shawl/wrap? Or a little shrug? I'm tempted by the latter, but not sure of pattern etc.
I've got 360metres. Fun planning! Need it by the 7th when Voddy performs at Volupte
for their afternoon tease.
Lastly - Anni says she's got away with bamboo dpns on several flights from the UK recently - I'll give it a try when I fly on 11th March. Thanks, Anni!
