Yikes! I have a 'bit' of knitting still to do if I want to finish it before Christmas. For Ginny's Yarn Along, I'm glad to say that the Meandering Rib Scarf and the Malabrigo Neck Thingie from last week are finished and traveling to their recipients as I type. As for the duffers, I finished half of the 1st pair (it was my test slipper - wanted to knit only 1 first before felting it - didn't want to waste yarn if it didn't work). Oddly enough, the before-felting and after-felting was basically the same size. Maybe just a tad smaller. I love the look of it! The match just needs ends woven in and felting. I started the 2nd pair, and this is how far I've gotten. As for the Circle & Stripe Scarf, I had to rip out what I had knitted and restart with a smaller needle. The scarf's finished measurements said it should be a little less than 7" wide. Mine was measuring over 8". So down 2 needles sizes I go...
I've been 'reading' One More Skein (where the Circle & Stripe pattern comes from) and just began Sarah's Key (only first three chapters). Spotted it at the library when I dropped off my pile of overdue books. Has anyone else read this?
I'm going to take the next few days off
to catch up on a few items and relax & enoy my family.
Hope you do the same!
