Coming along nicely, after two lace pattern increase repeats of Saroyan, by Liz Abinante. This is the knitted gift scarf for Debbie at the Joslyn Center, Recreation Park, El Segundo, California. She’s a 656 “Real Teal” fan and has saved my but a couple of times when I have forgotten my name badge.
Having not heard, nor seen V. in over two weeks, my mood is slipping, but I refuse to surrender completely by throwing myself into creativity. These are the projects am currently focused on:
Supermassive Black Hole
Finally found a pattern – Hoodie Cowl by Jessie Rayot – that will match the black/blue yarn I received from El Segundo Slipt Stitchers (ESSS) Rosa. At least, I think so. The pattern calls for a K size or similar and I think that will match the weight of the yarn.
I believe I saw correctly; this is a crochet hoodie pattern.
A Secretary Is Not A Toy
I also found this pattern: Saroyan by Liz Abinante. Red Heart Super Saver Real Teal is for the knit gift scarf I’ll be making for the ESSS secretary, Debbie.
I’ll be using Helvellyn by Lily Kate France to make another hoodie – knit this time – with this Ella Rae Mega in Royal Blue that I acquired before Needlepoints West closed.
“Captain Fantastic, raised and regimented, hardly a hero…
Measuring Brother, Can You Spare A Dime , – there’s my friend again; I’m beginning to like him – because I have some purple wool – recently untangled by I – I could use.
41.5 (x2) = Total L = 83 in x 33 avg W
If I’m correct, I need 99 L based on my W…pattern check:
Remember that you need the 1:3 ratio to get the correct sizing for folding. Since our width is 13″ (ish) we need the length to be 39″ (ish).
…I was right!
Ding! Dang! So I need sixteen more inches…and I just realized the purple wool I had in mind to finish this matches the fiber content of Like A Prayer Shawl…LIGHTBULB!…that would make a nice felted knit bag also with the existing color blocking…OMG! Especially, if it measures up for the same bag!
Bing! Bang! Make it so!
But then I have no other wool on hand to continue with Brother, Can You Spare A Dime. 😦
