summertime saturdays.7Saturday, August 02, 2008
Um, yes. Another Saturday. But we camped out last night. At the pool. And there was a lovely breakfast this morning. But I missed my oportunity to photograph it. So instead I will show you some knitting.
I mentioned of my plans to knit for others the month of July. After I read about nest on Sarah's blog, and then again on Amanda's, I knew I wanted to participate. To help others stay warm. So I decided to just try to knit as much as I could, until the end of the month. And I decided since I have both of these patterns memorized, this would be the easiest thing for me to tote around. I also owe some people some gifts, so some will go to them.
I searched my stash, and this is what I found. Lorna's laces, Classic Elite, Renaissance and Cascade 220 superwash. One skein of the Renaissance made one pair. One skein of the Cascade made two pairs. And I only made one pair out of the Lorna's Laces, but I do believe that I have enough to make one more pair.
Almost finished ten. Almost.
This pattern is one that is a combination of a couple of different patterns. So, not my own. Hopefully sometime soon I will be able to combine my thoughts so that you can make a pair if you want. They are super easy. And quick.
And these are the Evangeline. My all time favorite. I added one pattern repeat to the instructions for the short pair.
