Gepakt en gezakt - packed
I have packed my bags, waiting for the cab to pick us up... time for a last update!
Even if I knit the cuff a bit shorter (only 20 rows), I ran out of yarn on the 2d sock. And of course the yarn was no longer available at the lys… so I continued with some white yarn, but that did not look good.
Ravelry pagina, die ik nu ook kan 'sharen', dus publiek zichtbaar maken. Je kan dus al mijn nota's lezen zelfs al ben je geen lid van Ravelry.
Finally I frogged the foot of the first stocking and reknit both feet with beige and white stripes. I hope it’s not too obvious, I think it works.
I had some trouble with my shawl, had to 'unknit' 6 rows of over 500 stitches. It took me almost 2 evenings to do that. But I managed to finish eventually.
I cheated by leaving out the beads on the border, the shawl has plenty of beads already.
It turned out a bit too fancy, I doubt I will ever wear this. Definitely not taking this with me to Suriname.
een nieuwe sjaal opgezet. Ik ben er klaar voor!
I cannot leave without knitting, so I cast on a new shawl yesterday evening. I am ready now!
