life is pretty busy around here. The twins were ill (just a cold) and ate very badly (they aren't good eaters in the first place), which totally stressed me out. Let's just say, that there was a lot of crying on my side involved.... And to be honest, I'm not thru it yet. At least the kids are back to their old level of eating, which is good I guess.
So, again no sewing at casa tini but in the two hours I have every evening, after the kids are in bed (during the day, they tend to sleep at different times and if they are both asleep I try to eat or do some chores like laundry or just taking a shower...) I manage to get a bit of knitting done.
First: Leftover socks for me
pattern: Upstream Master Pattern from Cat Bordhi's "New pathway for sockknitters" I'm in the process of knitting each of Cat's sockitechtures :) So far I made 5 different socks from the book. That makes it the book from which I knit the most patterns so far.
yarn: odds and ends from my stash
needles 2,5mm metal circs from Knitpicks/Knitpro
I really like the way the socks are constructed. They fit my fit really really well, so I guess I will knit more upstream socks
I also completed another project with my handspun.
Pattern: an Unoriginal hat by the yarn harlot (free pattern :) )
(the second picture does show the colour of the yarn better. My husband is not really fond of my camera...)
yarn: My own handspun, held double to get gauge.
needles: 7mm ciruclars but not from Knitpro or Addi turbo. They were so blunt, that it was a real pita to knit the hat. So annoying, that I ordered a big set of Knitpro needles :)
I'm currently working on a shrug but I don't have a picture to show yet.
