Well, it is Sunday again, so time for the week's update on my YOP work. This week has been full of all sorts of activities, but maybe not so much knitting. I am keeping on with my ten stitch twist, although this week admittedly, maybe not a complete rotation.
I am nearing the end of the first ball of King Cole Riot, so ordered a couple more..... incidentally, this website I've used a few times, has an offer on Riot at the moment....very handy, and quick delivery too.
Other knitting this week, has been a new project from my list, which has taught me a brand new skill.....I can now (kind of) cope with DPNs....
This is the main body for the Big Snowy Owl...my version will be a Not Quite So Big Snowy Owl as I'm using aran weight not the super bulky called for. I am pleased as punch with my new found skill....I would never have guessed that DPNs were used like that......thank goodness for google.....who knew you had to.....stand on your head before you could do it......actually, I did think that all four needles held the stitches and you went round from needle to needle....I've got to say to all you sock knitters, I'm not sure how you do it, I was definitely all fingers and thumbs! Do you ever find that one of the needles you are not holding, ever falls out? That would be reason for a small meltdown in my mind!
Well, that's about it for this week....my hubby and kids are drumming their fingers waiting for me to finish so we can get out walking, so I must tarry no longer.
Just one quick pic of the fruit I put into another summer pud yesterday........doesn't that just scream summer?!
Looking forward to sitting down later and reading about all your progress too.....thanks for being such a great group to be part of! Hope you all have a great crafting week.x
