Weekend (k)nit in

I spent most of my weekend in non-public clothes. After work Friday I bought groceries…mostly snacks and beverages for the weekend. Then I cam home and hunkered down with the (k)nits for the weekend. Yeah it was spring-like but I’m an indoors kind of girl so I had a (k)nit in.2014-02-21 20.41.29

I was pretty productive too. Basic peanut body, Bitty Bee and Maggie the Mama Owl # 62014-02-22 20.40.03 became just (k)nits bound off. All were knit on US size 5 needles. Basic peanut body is in  Dancing Dog Dyeworks Waltz Worsted Turtle Turtle colorway. Bitty Bee is in GnomeAcres Squishy Gnome in Witches Brew with bits of Cascade 220. Maggie the Mama Owl used the last of  the Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted in Robot Overlord with scraps of unknown origin.

Since the weather co-operated and I was able to dry outside, I blocked Mr Bluejeans.. I usually steam block sweaters but opted to wet block this one. I didn’t aggressively block the edging to the full measurement given in the pattern because I felt the Malabrigo Rios would relax more in that area with wear. I may steam it a bit later if necessary to open the cable-rib section.2014-02-24 11.44.18

I also swatched for just (k)nits casting on Severi which I’ll be (k)nitting in Berroco Linsey. The pattern calls for a US size 7 needle. I used a US size 4 to et gauge after wet blocking. I’m now trying to decide what size to knit. This yarn relaxes significantly when worn. If I make a smaller size (zero ease), it may be too tight and the larger size (4 inches postive ease) may be too big.I’m leaning toward the larger size and plan to cast on tomorrow and finish up the Russian socks on Wednesday as a work in public project. 2014-02-24 11.44.34

Speaking of the just (k)nits for fun Russian socks, I did work them a bit last night but only knit a couple of rows before sleepknitting started. I plan to finish them Wednesday.

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