The evening between work and the baseball game was good. We had dinner with John, his three girls and Lynda. The girls are three of the four that came to Myrtle Beach with us last summer. Plans are underway for next July.
The store samples we had were knit on 7mm needles. I tried less stitches and 10mm needles. I think I like the looser knit better. You can make a great Christmas present in an evening.
There is a huge colour range and now I want to wind a skein and knit another one! I'm not a shiny person but the glitter in Stuff grabs my attention. It isn't garish. Just pretty.
So far I have only shown the cardigans from Coastal Knits. Here is a hat-Rustling Leaves.
Rustling Leaves is the perfect fall accessory. Knit from the bottom up, this beret features beautiful elongated leaves that slant in different directions as if they were rustling in the wind.
Brim circumference: approx 20" / 51cm after blockingDiameter: approx 10" / 25cm across after blocking
This is beautiful. I really wish I could wear a hat. My head is way too big and my hair sticks out funny under a hat.approx 175 yds / 160m of fingering weight wool or wool blend yarn.Alternate Yarn: Malabrigo Sock or Madelinetosh Tosh Sock.
Who knew that we would be wearing shorts and t-shirts for Thanksgiving weekend? I hope everyone enjoys theirs and has some family time. I don't know if there will be a blog post tomorrow. Dinner at Aunt Rene's!!!
