1:12 Hap(py) Shawl by CAWcreations. Purchase pattern through Fleece and Harmony. Used Fleece and Harmony’s fingering yarn in Strawberry fields and Rhubarb colours. The needles used were 2.5 mm (US 1 1/2) Knitters Pride Karbonz (Everyone else uses 3.5 mm to get the same gauge. I am odd.) I did not like the needles because the tips kept twisting off the cord and the yarn kept catching on the tips. I do not have this problem with my other Knitters Pride needles just these tips.
5:30 Gavin’s Blanket a CAWcreations pattern in Knit Picks Dishie yarn. Using 4.5 mm (US 7) needles for a gauge of 4 stitches and 5 rows = 2.5 cm. Not much progress. In the bag by Michelle Holland. Love the size. Fits the entire throw.
7:00 Seb’s socks new CAWcreations sock pattern with reversible cables on top. Finding the two at a time socks take MUCH longer to make. Used MyColourWheelhouse yarn in flaming orange.
9:00 Apple Blossom Socks in Lisa Sousa’s 2016 Rhinebeck color with Annie Purl’s I want your socks grey sparkle cuffs, heels, and toes. Using a 2.25 mm (US 1) circular needle. In my Dr. Who bag by Sue from The Tangled Skein CA on Etsy.
10:05 Knitting I entered in the provincial exhibition. Got first place for two piece baby set (Zig Zag Baby Cardigan, and Baby Pants/shorts), and third place for the Beach Day Shawl all are CAWcreations patterns designed for Fleece and Harmony.
12:35 What is new in my world: Roadtrip with Tim, taxi for children (young adults), start teaching this fall, and plan at least once a month podcast
“Inspired by the glory of Tang Dynasty China in the eighth century, Guy Gavriel Kay melds history and the fantastic into something both powerful and emotionally compelling. Under Heaven is a novel on the grandest narrative scale, encompassing the intimate details of individual lives in an unforgettable time and place.” http://brightweavings.com/ggk/books/books/under-heaven/
Great story loved the characters and social commentary. The ghosts were great too.
