Some Assembly Required

When I knit softies, I have some assembly work that’s required. I’m not fond of assembly work. I think that’s true of a lot of knitters. I’ve been working on turtle, TURTLE and Sam the S^2C Frog and have been putting off the assembly work. 2013-09-09 23.16.00Tomorrow will be assembly day here. Sam is knit from Cascade 220 and turtle, TURTLE from Dancing Dog Dyeworks Waltz Worsted in turtle, TURTLE and Limey colorways. Both were worked on US size 5 needles. 2013-09-09 23.19.10

Friday evening I cast on a newborn size Milo for a special baby named Hope. She was born six weeks too early and needs prayers so I cast on a Milo using Cascade Bentley.2013-09-09 23.17.16 It’s an acrylic-wool blend and a very good choice for children’s knits. It was nice to knit and made a nice fabric. I used US size 4 needles and my gauge was still a bit large. I liked the fabric from those needles so adjust size choice if necessary. I’m hoping that Hope will be big enough to wear the sweater for Halloween. I used the owl cable.2013-09-09 23.17.28

Once the assembly work is done. I’ll be casting on Guinevere Socks which is another Wooly Wonka Heroines club selection and another possible project for the library display. I’ll also be knitting another Milo in a larger size from the same yarn.I’ll also be starting the Westknits’ Mystery Shawl KAL 2013.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just (k)nits.
