Can you hear the sound of needles clicking? That's me, busy working on Liberty. It's coming along nicely now that I’ve gotten fairly comfortable with two-handed knitting again. I’ll just be knitting along, immersed in following my chart, and ever now and again, I'll stop and take a look at my knitting and I think, "Oh. WOW!" It is SUCH fun to see the pattern emerging.
One thing though. My white stitches are a little tight and I think it's because I'm knitting the white with my left hand, which is not my dominent hand. If anyone out there has any ideas or tips to help me with this, I'd surely appreciate it.
When I need a break from pattern squinting, I pick up the Cute Baby Kimono (from Mason-Dixon Knitting) I'm making for my friend's daughter, Ellen. I’ll be making two of these since Ellen is having twins! I’m using Berroco Comfort in Rosebud. Since big sister, Kate, will only be 1 ½ when her sisters are born, Ellen needs something that is super easy care and Comfort fits the bill.
This is knit all in one piece with seaming up the sides and underarms. I'm almost finished with the left side. This is an easy and quick knit and has been my take along knitting this week.
Oh, and one more thing. I've discovered that a nice steaming mug of Earl Grey (decaf) is the perfect accompaniment to Liberty knitting.
