That is perfect for knitting and wondering what the hell noise the chimney just made. The Wind here it at break-neck speed. Countless branches have been trown onto roads and last night I seen a house with a large tree lying against it. would not have liked to be there when that happened (what the f$%& was that???) therefore: glad I wasn't.
My Dad's been telling me that cars can swerve when hit by wind this strong, its making me nervous of driving. A much safer option would probably be to strap myself to an umberella and put my knitting and work clothes in a Carpet bag... wonder how she steered that thing.
A certain person will be flying up there tho, Jenni's coming home from Americaland. I have heard stong arguements that planes are heavier than cars and therefore less likely to be affected by wind..... but I'd still be worried. Better you than me Jenni
All projects have been coming along..... steadly. I am however very proud of one item which I've been working at non-stop for the last few weeks.
And that would be Craig's Cricket Vest. it is now roughly 95% finished. With the entire Right side done, even the Arm ribbing I am ready to tackle the collar. The Patten say to do the 2 sides first, then tackle the collar.... using a circular needle.
First off I don't own a 4mm circ needle. I only own 1 circ needle and thats a 2mm. The only reason I have that one was to work on the unmentionable Bolero (which will be taken out of sleeping as soon as March rears it's spring-ish head)and that's because I don't like working on circs
I prefer having a set of DPNs rather than a circ. And I know about Magic Loop. Tried it... Didn't like it. I don't know why but I find them just too annoying.
So rather than going out and buying a circ that I'm not going to use again apart from this once I am going to use a set of 6 Double points. and do the collar before joining up the other side. I think it'd be easier that way.
Had to include a picture of the sleeve ribbing. I love it. Craig tried it on last night...(yeah that was entertaining... only one sides done... I know...how am I supposed to try it on then... put your arm through..... oh...)
So I am going onto the collar. I'll let you know how it gets on.
Until next time- Toodles
