Actual knitting…. April 9, 2008

Filed under: Knitting — mintlatte @ 5:37 pm

I have actual knitting 🙂

First of all, there is a little more of the knitter’s crack known as the ball band dishcloth.


These two were birthday gifts with french lavender soap for my MIL and SIL.  Addictive as usual, took all my power not to cast on a bazillion more…

DH finally asked for something knitted, I know he doesn’t wear sweaters, so I had no fear of that, but imagine my relief when all he wanted was this:

 ipod sock

Yup. An ipod sock.  This was knit with some lovely wool I gpt at Stitch n’ Pitch this year, knitted up I LOVE it and wish I had more than a single skein, but in the skein? It be some UGLY stuff.  Half the skein in each color, and you just have no idea how it will knit up.  It has taught me a lesson though about judging yarns by their hanks……

Also for those keeping tabs, another burner cover met its demise the other day.  Bless its heart, it was less than 2 days old when it found out I have issues……I am thinking of getting four teapots instead of burner covers, and keeping a little water in each, that way if I turn on the wrong one, it will whistle at me before I start a fire AND I get a nice cup of tea.

burner cover...burnt…that or investing in solid burner covers and matching spray paint.

    Last summer a friend of mine finally discovered the ball-band washcloth and took to it like you wouldn’t believe. By the time Christmas rolled around, she had a huge stack of them prepared as gifts for her coworkers, friends, and pretty much everyone else she knew.

    Your Clapotis is lovely, by the way. I’ve seen that pattern all over the blogs but it’s one that’s never really interested me much. Maybe I ought to take another look at it…

    Thanks!! Actually I didn’t have a lot of interest in Clapotis either, but was looking for a simple wrap, and the more I looked, the more drawn in I got.

    As for the ballbands? Good to know I am not alone, seriously there is just something about them……

    I made a ballband (or maybe 2) for Knitting Sprite and gave them to her with yarn and the pattern to make more … bad mommy or good mommy? You be the judge.

    And maybe, just maybe, the Universe is telling you to just give up on covering your burners?
