I am back on the east coast. Currently with no job, hanging with the family, and enjoying being back in the world of woods.
And knit knit knitting away. On a fantastic pair of kilt hose. The pattern takes a little bit of thought to figure out, but I am loving it just the same. They will hopefully fit who they are intended for. Otherwise I might have to alter his feet, because I am not reknitting these!
I purchased the yarn at Fibre Space in Alexandria. What a fantastic yarn store! They were so helpful and patient with me trying to find the perfect manly green to go with my friend’s kilt. I settled on Berocco Vintage. I don’t really like the yarn for this project. It is a worsted weight knit on size 2 needles to make a really dense fabric (the pattern called for 0s but I couldn’t imagine knitting a pair of hose on those!) The yarn is way too splitty for the braid cable, but I am making it work.
For Lent I am only knitting for other people. Luckily kilt hose take awhile… but all I want to do is start my Little Birds Sweater!
(I am not counting seaming as knitting. I will allow myself to finish my Aidez cardigan.)
