OK Christina, this is for you: Do I need to earn my knitting time? For example, this afternoon -- kids fighting, dishes piled up in the sink, a bed full of clean, unfolded laundry, and a laundry room filled with dirty laundry -- and I'm blissfully knitting ... is this wrong? or is this just enjoying the finer things in life? Okay, I tend to stop when the kids are fighting ... at the end of a row, anyway ....
Let me update you on the starfish (former jellyfish).
Here is the jellyfish -- before I knew the correct placement of the decrease.
So the Waldorf knitting group is knitting four (2 for adults, 2 for children) of the King Harald Street Hat from The Art of Fair Isle Knitting. 2 sets of colors, 4 colorways. I have a child's hat to knit, but the pattern was not sized for a child, so this is my first real tinkering with pattern in a significant way.
Here is my pattern -- I was frustrated with figuring out the math of it, but I think it will be alright in the end.
Here is the hat so far. It is hard to get a good picture of it. It's knit with Jamieson Spindrift on 2s and 3s and is just delicious to work with. The colors are the most fabulously shaded heathers. The wonderful people at LK were great with helping us pick out replacement colors. I'll post again when the family of hats is done!
I want to design a sweater for myself next ... although I should be knitting from the stash ... anyway, back to earning my knitting ...
