“Your still working on that?”
“Have you even touched it since the last time you were over?’
Well now i won’t have to hear that anymore because my Burnin’ Rings of Fire are done!!!
Project: Burning Rings of Fire by Kirsten Kapur
Dates: April 12 -June 11, 2008 Almost 2 months to the day
For: Me-i know i have been very sock greedy-I am planning socks for little man and my grandma this summer.
Needles: Size 2 dps and 2 circs
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Bamboo Color 2 balls but i didnt use a full skein-there was probably about a quarter of each ball left.
Notes: Easy pattern. The yarn is soft and colorful perfect for this pattern. The yarn can be a little splitty but i didnt have a whole bunch a problems with it but maybe about 6 times i poked my needles through the yarn-usually if i wasn’t paying attention. The pattern is written in 2 circ needle format but i started with Dps, then after working on it for a few rows i tried the 2 circs and it was okay but i felt like it slowed be down so i went back the Dps. Then i made those hearts for the teachers and that was with 2 circs and it kinda got me in my groove so when i came back to the socks i changed to the circulars again and stuck it out for about 75 percent of the second sock then i got tired of it and went back to the Dps. It’s not that i don’t like the circular needles there are a few nice things about working with them but i felt like having to move the needles and get everything in position for each row was slowing me down and i wanted to get these babies done. But i am glad i tried it out and i will continue to do so. I think it is a good technique to know if you ever want it.
Today i have some seaming together planned for a hoodie that i finally started to make this week for the Knitted Bear i made Little Man. The i have shorts and socks to make him but i am not in a huge rush to make those. i want to start another bear-for me 🙂
I also started Kiri (pdf) i this week but not a lot has been done on that. I am trying to finish up more WIPs.
Tomorrow is WWKIP day, Are any of you going to be outside showing your skills. There is a little gathering at a park nearby so i think i may stop by, depends on the weather and if i chicken out. Lol i am so shy-horrible at meeting new people but since Little Man will be at grandma’s i think i should suck it up and go hang with some fellow grown-up knitters.
I found out yesterday that next Saturday Little Man is having his first soccer practice and the Monday after that his first game!!!!! i am so excited 🙂 I hope he likes it.
Enjoy Your Weekend!
