It was blistering hot today. I stayed inside to finish some knitting projects. These are for the new grandchild due at the end of August. The blanket is two yarns held together with purl ridges on top of stockinette, sort of like caterpillars crawling all around. The sweater is cotton and has snaps underneath the bear buttons.
My husband wears my hand-knit vests under suits. This is marino wool with a twisted cable on each side of a basic six stitch cable in the center. It’s purple; for his alma mater. This is the 12th vest I’ve made him in 29 years of marriage; and he’s still wearing them all!
This Noro bulky is for a short poncho for my friend Kathy. It’s done in the round, beginning on #15 needles, then #13, then #11, then #9. It should go fast!
