however i tore myself away from the books and spent a while doing some sewing this evening, sewing up of beanie seams that is.
the first beanie i started, green apple sorbet, is all stitched up. this one took me a while because i lost one the needles. once i found it i got right back into it though. it's been off the needles for a while, just had to find the time and motivation to stitch her up :D
beanie number three, which remains nameless, is also all done. i finished this one up while i was at my parent's last week, it's been waiting in the to-be-sewed pile too.
any suggestions for a name anyone?
aaaaaaaand beanie number four: dancing dirt into the snow.
started this one as soon as i finished number three, down on the farm.
80 stitches on 6.5 cm needles. after around the 5th row, i lost about 8 stitches off the end of one of the needles. i really shouldn't keep my knitting works in my handbag... took me a good 20 minutes to carefully salvage the silly stitches, but i managed to save them all!
it's coming along quite nicely, isn't it? the difference in the shades of whites and greys seem to be giving it a nice visual texture, as well as the chunkiness of the wool giving it a nice tactile one.
