Fiber Blog

Today I joined the San Diego Knit Blog Ring. Hopefully this will inspire me to document the fiber in my life.

So first off these are my project on the needles at the moment:

Clapotis by Kate Gilbert from Knitty
I am knitting this with hand dyed 2-ply merino in shades of brown from a wool shop in Melbourne called Marta's. This is not exactly the yarn called for in this pattern or even close. My clapotis will be a scarf about 12 inches wide. I have knitted past the repeats specified in the straight section of the pattern and have to keep going until it is long enough. I started with 100 g of the wool and have about 48 g left.

Easy Eyelet Blanket from Knitting for Baby by Falick and Nicholas
This is a gift for a baby who will be too old by the time I finish this. I started last year when the child was 1.5 yrs old. Now a year later I have about a ball to go. The yarn is a variegated Lang Yarn Bambini Cotton. Maybe this project is taking so long because this is my car knitting project.
