Knitting Update

I knit this hat on the plane ride to LA - it managed to keep me slightly distracted from the incredibly annoying woman sitting beside me - will give the whole story in a future post.

baby hat
It's to match the 5 Ring Circus Jacket. I could probably still crank out some booties from the remaining yarn; might knit them on Friday (baby shower is Saturday)

Here's Chamoischella - my Coachella that is being knit out of Cotton Fleece in the Chamois colourway.


Right now I am actually doing the back strip, and I am still not certain if the 2 skeins will be enough. While out shopping in Palm Springs I came across a knit cardigan, and really liked the stitch pattern:

It looks to me like the pattern would be Purl 1 row; then Sl 1, K1 to end; Purl 1 row; then K1, Sl1 to end.

If I do start running out of yarn, I will re-knit the bottom portion of the tank in this stitch pattern. It will be a bit more open of a knit, but for the bottom part that should't be too much of a problem.

I think it's the Half Brioche St (P version).

Multiple of 2 + 1

R1 (WS): P
R2: K1 *K1B, K1; rep from * to end
R3: P
R4: KIB *K1, K1B; rep from * to end

K1B: Insert ndle through centre of st below next st on ndle and K this in the usual way, slipping the`st above off ndle at the same time.
