Today I have an FO for you! I love, love, love this thing and I’ll definitely be making another one soon.
Pattern: Crofter’s Cowl by Gudrun Johnston (Ravelry link, only available for download there)
Started: October 23, 2008
Completed: October 26, 2008
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky in Teal Feather
Needles: US 8 bamboo circular and DPNs
Notes: I knit a total of 5 repeats on the first half and 4 repeats on the second half because I wanted to use up as much of the yarn as possible. I only have a tiny bit left! Yes, I actually grafted the whole thing together and it doesn’t sound nearly as bad as it was. It went by pretty quick. I’ll admit, though, that I watched that video on KnittingHelp.com a ton of times, so I have the whole thing memorized ;o)
The only other interesting thing so far this week is that my odometer in my car hit 99,000 miles. I have a 2004 Matrix XR, so I’m averaging about 25,000 miles/year. Not too bad. The average according to my insurance agent is about 20,000 miles/year, so I’m only slightly above average!
As for the Gable sweater… it’s coming along. I got some help at knit night last night and pretty much just continued on faking it like I did the yoke. I wrote down lots of notes for the yoke and now the neck shaping, so if anyone else is knitting the large size, I’ll be happy to share them (they’ll also be in my FO post for it). I’m a few rows into the hood now and I’m hoping it will continue to go well. I’m hoping to finish it up tonight!
We leave for vacation to Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday. I am excited to go and ready for a break!
