What do you knit on a warm Carolina weekend?

What did I knit on a warm Carolina weekend? And the answer is…

I spent the afternoon at the yarn shop Friday afternoon. Friday evening I started sleepknitting when I had two rows left on the body of the Elizabeth.

Saturday morning I cast on Moving Mountains Lovie. I’m working this in Berroco Comfort with size 8 US needles. I didn’t swatch because gauge really isn’t critical on this piece. Mine will be slightly larger than the suggested size. I think, when I knit another, that I’ll use a size 7 US needle. I’ve worked half of this piece and should have no trouble finishing it up next weekend. I also finished the body on the Elizabeth and wove some ends.

Today was work day at the yarn shop. I worked on the front bands and color of the Elizabeth. After work, I started the sleeve and worked about 22 rows. I’m hoping to knit a few more before sleep sets in.While I do plan to finish the body and sleeves Tuesday at the latest, I may not finish this piece until vacation. I decided to work the bands and color as an on-the-go and vacation project.

The Tessa Ann buttons for the aviatrix hat came. I’m so pleased with the beanie button that I had to post another picture of the hat and a close up of the button.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
