Kiri needs a few ends sewn in, but is blocked and I have the photographs of Natalya modelling the blocked shawl, only they're on my office computer. Next week!
With all catastrophic events surrounding the aftermath of Katrina last week, these things got pushed to the back burner. The good news now is that at last people are being rescued. And look how much money has been raised now by knit blogger's donations to The American Red Cross - fantastic!
Jacinta, on the other hand, got people (and not-so-little baby Seth) in her viewfinder!
I'm still in a mega knitting slump. I think it's because Summer is nearly over. It's still muggy over here in London, but all of the Autumn yarns and magazines are out and it's so tempting to start something new. I was pretty restrained yesterday. I picked up Jaeger JB 37 because I like Juliette and Lolite .
Also DB's Alpaca silk two . I haven't even got as far as looking through this one yet, but you can check the other designs here. It was good though to see what other people are knitting/have knitted. Jill has knitted this little number and it's gorgeous. I have the yarn, I have the pattern... Sorry I don't have a photo of Jill wearing this. Amelia was wearing Jenny and it also looked fabulous.
I bought a couple of balls of Jaeger Matchmaker 4ply in cream for the next six socks kal. August's pattern is Amble, and cream will suit the pattern. Amble also happens to be the place where I went on holiday as a child!
So far, the progress is minimal. A ribbing. But this is now commuter knitting so I ought to make good progress should I be lucky enough to get a seat on the train.
Let's see how this grows over the week!
Asymmetrical is growing, slowly. This is like Agnes, not a difficult pattern at all, but I have to keep an eye on the ribbed pattern, and on the Cathay. Beautiful yarn, but it has a tendency to split if I'm not careful.
It's difficult to show the shape (hence a photo of the texture) as it pulls in dramatically. I'm hoping that it will stretch out nicely when it's finished!
