Patchwork's sleeves have been started.
Sleeves done on straight needles, knitting back and forth, seem to take me forever. Done on circs they go much more quickly. A bit of Magic Loop at the narrow beginning does the trick until the circumference is big enough to take the entire cable. Once I get to the cap, I will revert to back and forth knitting for that shaping.
And - Fred's puzzle is finished.
1,000 pieces - well actually 999 -
I purchased it for him at Valu Village for 99 cents. He sure got his money's worth. And I have my blocking board back. Patchwork is on the board now.
Our weather is showing definite signs of spring or as we knitters call it 'cotton knittin' time'. I want Patches done before that cotton leaps onto my needles.
PS: I sound like Rick Mercer but - Gail A sent me this notice
about a workshop at Storybook Farm in Manitoba. If you are out that way, drop in.
