Many a stitch was knit last night
Nothing more delightful than a long evening of pure knitting time stretching out before me. Last night was great for working on my Norwegian Woods Shawl.
Both repeats of pattern 2 done and on to the first of 3 of pattern 3.
This is the scarf version but you can see where I am - just at the beginning of what looks to me like gothic arches. Getting close to the end - but still lots of looooong rows and getting longer ... to knit
Just queued this up on Ravelry. Another Hanne Falkenberg design - love the colours and the directional knitting. This version has 4 colours - better I think than some of the others that are only 2. It is called Blues and is in a new yarn for Ms F - a cotton/wool that is a bit heavier than her usual Shetland style yarn.
It is now #3 on my queue
Number 1 is the Aran Wrap Cardigan from Vogue Knitting Fall 08 - sideways cables with knitted downwards sleeves and a cabled peplum. Clever pattern!
And this is #2 - a finer knit - probably do it in Jo Sharp Classic DK or perhaps Filatura di Crosa's Zara
Off now to get ready to go to a rehearsal for Trial by Jury - a concert version to be performed in one of the most beautiful churches in Toronto - St. Anne's on Gladstone Ave famous for its Group of Seven paintings. A truly glorious setting
