The Pomatomus Project is done!
The details: Cookie A's Pomatomus from Knitty's Winter 2005 issue. Toe-up, Magic Loop on 32-inch 3mm Addi Turbo. Yarn is Knitpicks Dancing, in the Ballet Colourway, which appears to no longer be available.
Next is a pressie for my wee pal Charlie. Sweet little Charlie. In a three-way tie for most delicious little boy in the world Charlie. (I have two heart-stoppingly sweet nephews.) Charlie is my best friend Nancy's little man. Here he is:
Charlie turned one this past week, and for that he gets his first sweater hand-knit by Aunt Fun!
The deets: Top-down raglan pattern from my new favourite template. Patons Rustic (sadly, no longer available), reclaimed from two projects I opted to frog and restyle. The beige was a sweater I knit in 1995. The grey was a poncho I knit when pregnant with my first in 2003.
On the needles:
- A top-down raglan for myself, in a CTH Supersock mill end. Modified from the magic worksheet, with lacy (yo) increases and a nice, long turtleneck
- Sock #1 in Austerman Step for a coworker's husband. At work, I've become the source for spousal Christmas gifts.
- Shawl in Knitpicks Shimmer. I started the KP Candleflame and didn't like it. Methinks I'll do a double-stranded Clapotis.
Very cool to see so many blog hits. Thanks for stopping by!
