I got my Eco wool from Meaghan at Yarns Online and started on Hemlock right away. These balls of wool are giants, it took me a while to wind it into a ball my poor yarn winder couldn't handle the size so I had to do the rest by hand.
I am knitting mine on 6.5mm Knitpicks options and will need to change over to a longer cable soon. I am only onto round 63. Perhaps I should have used smaller size needles to get a tighter fabric because I am not sure I like the tension it's giving me I think this may be a bit loose but it's too late now.
I am really enjoying knitting this because it's knitting up so quickly I may have enough time to knit up another as a Christmas present for someone else perhaps in a different colour. I also bought "Scarf Style" from Meaghan and some Cascade 220 in-Mallard- to knit a scarf for Kim because one of the side effects he can have and is most likely to get they said is feeling very cold in the throat and he asked me to knit a scarf for him.
My daughter also wants me to knit something for her for Christmas nothing daggy she said (would I knit anything daggy? I guess it must be the age difference thing coming into play) for all of my International friends it mean not chic and I was also planning to knit a pair of socks for her partner who has very large feet.
And somewhere in between all this and work and everything else that 's going on at the moment I need to start packing because we will be moving house in December-January and also organise a garage sale.
It's all too hard really, when all I want to do is knit. So I guess what I am trying to say is I don't know if I will have any time to knit which is very hard to come to terms with because that's the only thing that keeps me going at the moment.
Very selfish of me I know but I can't help it. And speaking of busy that's it for my blogging today must go and do some long overdue house work etc etc.
Also my bloganniversary is coming up so lookout for a comp just need to figure out what the comp should be about. I have a lovely prize or two to give away!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
