Della Q


Svetlana Gordon has a new pattern (purchased on Ravelry). What a beauty. It is knit in fingering weight yarn - the possibilities. You can easily use this pattern for thicker yarns. You will need to go up in needle size and remove one or more pattern repeats.

Kathy finished her socks. This is a great colour combination. 
Here are my Sparks Socks.
They were fun to knit.  
I also learned all about colour dominance.  You can teach an old dog new tricks!
I had considered trying an after-thought heel but was leary of doing it.  It was a piece of cake.
Thanks for giving some lessons, even at my age!

We had a guest today - the Fed Ex man came with our Della Q bags. We opened a few for pictures. The backpack has my iPad Pro (the size of a 15” laptop), 2 balls of Noro Akari and another knitting kit. You can fit a lot in it.
Lynn modelled a few things at once. She was busy last night knitting a hat in Rowan Chunky Twist. It is so soft! I think doubling stranding the yarn on big needles would make a great throw.

There are pockets galore in the Mini Messenger. 
Don’t forget that I am in the store until 1pm tomorrow. If you need some last minute knitting (or a last minute Christmas gift) I can get your pick up order ready in the morning.
