Yesterday, I swallowd my pride and returned to the place of my mortification.Ã‚Â I am so glad I did, I had such a good time and I met so many nice, local knitters;Ã‚Â several I knew from their blogs or from KALs.Ã‚Â 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.Ã‚Â 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:Ã‚Â Warm Woolies Good Friends Cables VestÃ‚Â size 3-4
yarn:Ã‚Â Knit Picks Wool of the Andies in Asparagus, doubled
needles:Ã‚Â Boye Needle Master US10.5
cast on:Ã‚Â May 20thÃ‚Â Ã‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â May 27th
notes:Ã‚Â I changed the cable to one from Inspired Cable Knits,Ã‚Â no reason in particular, just liked this one.Ã‚Â 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.Ã‚Â 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.
