Knitting Up A Storm!

Wednesday, April 04, 2007

On my way to the Beaches SnB last night I stopped in at the Sheep and bought yarn. Yep, four balls of Cotton Fleece in Black to make this. Thought it would work, but the gauge is so way off I don't know what the hell I was thinking! Cotton Fleece is 5 stitches to the inch and the pattern calls for yarn that is 6.25 to the inch. Man, I doubt I could get it to work, unless I make the smaller size to compensate? HMMM....I'll have to do the math and see it if would work!

Brilliant - can you see the light bulb that just showed up over my head? If it doesn't work, then I'll make another Ribby Shell, can't go wrong with that pattern!

Sheldon the Turtle's pieces have all been blocked, dried and ready to be seamed. Aren't I lucky? I don't think it wil be that bad, but one never knows until you start. Actually I look forward to seeing the finished toy!

Knit On!

I love that pattern and all of the Lanaknits/Hemp for Knitting patterns. Good idea on the Cotton Fleece for it. I am thinking I'd like to make another Eiffel (did you make that one?) but in a different yarn than the hemp this time.
