I’ve been doing quite a bit of knitting over the past few days, including finishing my handspun convertible mittens. Unfortunately I haven’t taken any photos yet, but I will soon, I promise! I have been slaving over the cardigan Abalone by Beata Jezek, knit out of deep blue Bernat Satin. It has worked out wonderfully, besides an issue I’m having with the applied i-cord bind off, which was too tight for the drape of the garment. I’m trying to figure it out now!
In addition, my friend Kylie (of likepurlsoffastring) has published another pattern! It’s called Bisous, it is a pattern for “a lightweight hat with “x”s around the body, which converge into a star at the top,” and it is available for $2.50 in her pattern store.
In celebration, she is hosting a giveaway, where she will give away 5 copies to the lucky winners! To enter, check out the original post here.
There have been so many exciting things going on over the past few days, both knitting and non-knitting related!
1. I finished knitting and writing up a new pattern called “Wicked Witch Tea Cozy.” I won’t post photos until I release the pattern, once it’s finished being tested, but if you want to get in on the test knitting action, message me and I can send you a photo! Trust me on this though, it’s pretty cool.
2. I paid my admission deposit at Dalhousie University in Halifax, so I’ll be headed there in September! I also applied for residence, so hopefully I’ll get into my first choice. I’m a Dalhousie Tiger!
3. I finished my cardigan, Abalone. This one I can actually post photos of!
Unfortunately, I’ve made myself not cast on any new projects until my exams are over, but then I’ll be back to my knitting!
