This and That,,,

I did it! Today is only March 2 and Cardigan Maybe is drying peacefully on the blocking foam – YAY me! I think giving myself a public, challenging deadline is a good way to achieve some goals but maybe I should test it a few more times before declaring this?

I reknitted the bottom edge of the cardigan with some extra strengthening by knitting little bases. I took the idea from a reference Vicki gave me on my last post, thank you Vicki! My bases are shorter, I just added 3 garter ridges in growing width and than 3 ridges all around. I think it looks ok, I will try to take a photo of it on the finished garment.

My new glasses:

Complement my beloved Different Lines perfectly:

I see very clearly with them and the letters on the computer are all nice and sharp again. Now, if only they will stop pushing on my nose I will be very happy with them. They are made in Japan for a Danish Company called Bellinger – from some weird reason this combination pleases me.

While waiting for some very special yarns, I am playing with this:

Garter of course! I think I started the most projects ever with this Ultramerino 8 yarn. I bought it years ago in some super sale in 2 of my favorite colors (in real life the dark is a bit darker and the light is less pinkish) and I was sure it will be knitted in no time but apparently it was not meant to be. I keep trying all sorts of things with it and never really found what it wants to be,,, The idea behind this latest attempt is to make some kind of a throw or baby blanket but it is too soon to tell or to announce a new deadline.

And I wanted to show you the stainless steal balls Joe bought me for Valentine Day and something I saw in my frying pan one bright morning, but I guess these will have to wait for another opportunity.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

    Yay you! Good going. The technique looks very interesting and I can’t wait to see how it worked out for you. Cute glasses!

    Oh, I love that color combo for Different Lines (I really like that design), and your glasses are wonderful! I started looking around here for new frames and was so discouraged with the ornamentation found on every.single.pair. Ick. I only looked at one place, though, so maybe I’ll have better luck elsewhere.

    Anxious to see how the fix turned out! And you are so very welcome.
