I have been so good about not starting new knitting projects – well at least for the past ten days anyway. 🙂 I’ve been knitting along on this test knit and making good progress.
I’m about half way through the third striped section and after I finish that section, there’s one more gray lace section and then the final stripe section and edging. This is a very relaxing knit. I can’t wait to see it blocked with the lace opened up because it is such a pretty design. And I am absolutely loving the feel of the kidsilk striped with the fingering weight yarn – soft and airy but cozy.
I had previously mentioned wanting to make a Tuffet (footstool). There’s lots of patterns/kits/dvds available for different shaped tuffets. I have ordered the Not So Tuff Tuffet pattern designed by BouncingBobbins.com. The Tuffet will be a birthday gift (now belated) for my sister who knows I plan to make one for her. She asked for one to go with a pinkish chair she has in her home office. Hmmm….. it will be interesting to see what I find in the stash in shades of pink and mauves (and whatever other colors to go with them) since you know I don’t work a lot with pink. I do want to use batiks tho so a more likely to have those colors in multicolored batiks than in any other fabrics. I have to get a photo of the chair to see what it really looks like and also to figure out what sort/color of feet to get for the tuffet.
