Current Time User Uppers


These are what I've been doing this weekend. The quilt is coming along now, just needing the quilting bit done...so my fingers will resemble pincushions by the end of the week. I'm hopeless with a thimble, so straight through the skin is how it has to be for me. I'll go through the pain in the name of friendship. *Sniff*..just call me a matyr, the rest of my family does.

Secondly, the men's cashmere scarf. This has worked out differently to how I thought, my cashmere is thinner ply than the pattern, and I'm using 4mm Addi Turbos instead of 8mm straights. The pattern is a bit different, but I think it looks ok. A little more subtle than the one in LMKG. I think Rob will like it more. I got loads done while they were at the O2 Arena last night watching the Foos.

Here's a close up of the pattern.



Right, off to the dentist so he can sort out a crumbling filling. Gulp. I will try to be brave, but he and me both know I'm a jelly in the chair. Lots of novocaine is what I need. And quick. Back later when I am looking like a lady who's had a stroke.

BTW the Rib and Cable is from Special Family Knits Book.

I love the look of the scarf and quilt. :)

Loving the scarf - the cashmere and the stitch pattern is perfect together. Hope the dentist visit isn't too bad :D I really should make an appointment for my checkup.,.. *hmm*
