I was able to get quite a bit of stitching in this holiday weekend. Here is my progress on Julie’s RR:
Sorry about the bad photo. Maybe I get too close to the design when taking a picture. I will make a note of that for when I take my final photo. As you can see, I am almost done. The colors are gorgeous! Her face is a little off as she doesn’t have a nose or lips, but that will come when I do the outlining. I love her and can’t wait to finish her. Maybe tonight.
I also added a few stitches to the Passione Ricamo Stitch A Long, but not enough to take a picture. Only about 35-40 sts. Section 5 just came out on the 1st and I need to catch up as I haven’t done sections 3 or 4. Section 3 should go pretty fast, but 4 and 5 will take me a bit. I hope I can get caught back up before section 6 comes out.
I did get a little knitting done this weekend also. Working on my next pidge scarf for Sue.
I LOVE this yarn! It is Kudo by Plymouth Yarns. I love how the stripes form as I knit along. This is a worsted weight yarn and the pattern is for a chunky yarn. I tried adding some stitches to make it wider, but for some reason, I could not get it to work out. There really isn’t a pattern that would need to have a certain amount of stitches added to make it come out properly, but for some reason I had to keep pulling it out and starting over-many, many times. When I casted on the required amount of stitches and continued knitting, I had no problem. I should have gone down a size or 2 in needles, but I knew that would make it too narrow. So I have continued on and will see how Sue likes it when I am finished. I did pick up a pattern for a pidge scarf when I was on vacation last month. It requires worsted weight, so I will try it out and see how it turns out.
So that was my stitchy weekend. I had fun just stitching (and laundry) all weekend. How was your weekend?
