A Stitchy Weekend

I was able to get quite a bit of stitching in this holiday weekend.  Here is my progress on Julie’s RR:

Progress on Eastern Promise

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?
