Dulaan knit-in

Yesterday, I swallowd my pride and returned to the place of my mortification.  I am so glad I did, I had such a good time and I met so many nice, local knitters; several I knew from their blogs or from KALs.  It was nice to be able to put a face to the names.

After the incident last weekend, since I had a whole ‘nother week before the knit-in, I started a small vest from the Warm Wollies pattern.  I was able to finish it at the knit-in, it would have benefitted from a bit of blocking but, all things considered, I think it turned out well.

pattern:  Warm Woolies Good Friends Cables Vest size 3-4
yarn:  Knit Picks Wool of the Andies in Asparagus, doubled
needles:  Boye Needle Master US10.5
cast on: May 20th   cast off:  May 27th
notes:  I changed the cable to one from Inspired Cable Knits, no reason in particular, just liked this one.  It would have benefitted from a good blocking, but as the party was over at 6pm and I cast off at 6:15 or so, I decided it was fine without the blocking.

We all received cute little gift bags with a button, a magnet with Dulaan the alpaca on it and a stitch marker that Ryan and TMK made.  Daughter wanted the stitch marker for fishing, I vetoed that idea.

Frankie was such a trooper with all us strangers invading her house, but she was all tuckered out by the end of the evening.

  1. Hello?! How are you doing?

    I’m sick of blogger and want to move my site, but the first accursed place didn’t have a way to integrate my blogger stuff so that I could still use WordPress. HuH?!?!

  2. It’s exciting to see that someone used my pattern! I like the cable much better than the simpler ones I inserted in the pattern.
