One, two, three strikes you're out...
Last night we headed on down to Isotopes Park to watch some baseball. It was a gorgeous night to sit back and enjoy the game (even though I usually spend more time people watching than game watching!
It's another hot one here today - 99 degrees! A good day for sitting in front of the cooler and getting some knitting done. Lately I've even managed to finish a couple of projects that I'd had laying around for a while. The first is a gift that's on it's way to it's recipient back home:
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette in colours Apricot, Peach, Lemon, Sunlight, White and Grass
Needles: US Size #3
Notes: This was a lot of fun to knit and I love the finished product. I didn't end up knitting a liner for it and think it looks just fine without it. Since I didn't have a teapot to model it on, it's modelled on my sewing tin I bought recently at the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta:
Another project I've been working on is a cardigan for my niece:
Pattern:Heart-Motif Cardigan from "Adorable Knits for Tots" by Zoe Mellor
Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Style in colours Petal, Cornflower and Crocus
Needles: US Size #6
Notes: Obviously I modified the original pattern which included heart motives to more basic stripes. I loved the finished product though not so much all the ends to be sewn in! The only thing I was a little disappointed with was the colour of the yellow yarn which looked more pastel when I ordered it on line. I guess that's the price you pay when you buy yarn on line though!
At the moment I'm working on a birthday present - something to warm up someone back in chilly Melbourne!
