Pattern: Razor's Edge from Stitch n Bitch Nation
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky
Needles: big honkin' size 17 24 inch Addi's (with the surgical tubing)
I have a finished object! Can you all believe it? I can't either. When making this pattern, check the ERRATA because the pattern in the book is wrongity WRONG!
There was supposed to be a hole in the middle, like a poncho, but I thought it would look like a lobster bib on me. I skipped it. It is an easy lace pattern. I love the oddity of working lace in a bulky yarn.
While it is as hot as an oven now, I was able to get a little use out of it last week. It is a wonderful wrap. It will keep you warm on those chilly days when a coat would be too heavy.
I have started an EZ seamless sweater for me. I have made a couple of these for children, but never for myself. My green sweater is sitting beside me now, only half seemed up (seeming such a dark item SUCKS!), and I haven't touch Cozy in months (I really should work on that soon). Naturally, I have socks on needles.
I finally ordered a set of KnitPicks Options needles, LOVE THEM! They are every bit as good as Addi Turbos, but so much cheaper. The EZ sweater was cast on just so I could play with my new needles. I know they seem expensive, but they are worth every penny.
Well, wish me luck on my finals next week. Happy knitting!
