I've been pretty lazy over the summer, haven't taken many photos of my FOs. When I started to use Picturetrail, I took pictures of all my FOs, even the socks, but I've lapsed badly. I don't even seem to be able to recharge the camera batteries. This past holiday I took 3 photos - as we were packing up the beach hut!
Today's weather is typical for a bank holiday - miserable. We seem to have had showers for most of August. I found out last week that my waterprood is not waterproof in a heavy shower! So I've been out this weekend and bought another one that's water and wind proof. As the weather's so dire, I've not had any inclination to go outside and take any photos; they've been taken inside, when the sun has shone, or outside on the balcony with lots of shadows, because the sun was so low.
Discounting socks, here are the FOs
KPS Top down henley in Debbie Bliss Denim. I love this one, it's comfortable, the cotton is soft and goes into the washer on Chris's high temp setting with no disasters! I do like this yarn. It's a soft cotton to knit with, and I've used it twice now (a sweatshirt too) with several packs in stash.
KPS Top down raglan, v-neck in Jaeger albany. I've discovered that I love this yarn too. It's a narrow cotton tape and feels cool knitted up. I've just remembered another FO which I haven't photographed today - White Lies Design Bella jumper - the albany sets off the lace pattern wonderfully (after a good pressing!)
KPS Top down raglan, in Elann Sonata - weird black. grey and white, but I do like the outcome, though this picture looks a bit *dazzling*!!! I have some blue variagated in stash!
Sitcom Chic (knitty) in All seasons cotton - this is a nice cool weather cardy, not sure that I'll get used to wearing a cardy that has one button at the top!
Raglan (knit in pieces bottom up) with Colinette Giotto - lovely yarn to use, crap stitch (moss) and I don't like using 7mm needles. I do like this top too, even if it's bright and makes me look very fluffy!
Diamond patch (Jill Vosberg) in Rowan summer tweed. Love the knitted yarn, loathe knitting with it. I love this pattern too, just have never found the right yarn for the pattern! I've given away two previous attempts to a fellow knitter! I added small triangles to the bottom, the diamond effect looked crap.
Angie (Its a Tape Thing, Rowan) - I do like this yarn, even on large needles. This photo is crap too - the ribbing pulls it in, but the bottom and cuffs make the design. It's quite heavy to wear though.
A close up of the sleeves
Anna (Linen Print Collection, Rowan) - again, it's more pleasant to knit with than I thought, but this jumper is heavy, and short!
OTHER FOS NOT PHOTOGRAPHED
Bella (white lies) in Jaeger Albany - will get around to this sometime!
KPS Top down Summer cardigan in Jaeger Cadiz - must do this one too! It's pale pink, and I've not had need to wear it yet.
R2 Jumper from the papier yarn
R2 skirt from papier and ragg
Rowan cotton tape top and hat from #35
Calmer bolera from #35
(no pics for these, as they were gifts for Annalise and Jemima)
Baby jumpers x 3
Baby hats x 6
And socks - at least half a dozen
Fuck me sideways! I hadn't realised that I was such a prolific knitter!!! This is what happens if you hate housework and love knitting! What's this? 14 main things???? I think that I started in March or April, so that's 5 or 6 months worth of knitting. Not bad!
I'm in a stocking stich top down no finishing phase at the moment!
I started the baby cardigan - top down too, and have the border and one sleeve to do, but I'm done with that today and will pick it up in a few days.
