These beauties arrived in the post today, all the way from Scotland. What a glorious surprise! They made my day. The super-cute strawberries are a double-pointed-needle case from Mirella‘s etsy store, and the patriotic-coloured corn sock yarn was an awesome, unexpected treasure. Thanks, dudette!
With the 2010 ravelympics due to begin in a mere few days, and me hurting a strategic finger on my right hand—turns out I knit weirdly—I decided to get this Continental knitting thing straightened out and give the technique a red hot go. I found this video helpful for the troublesome purl stitches, and while I’m still finding it awkward that’s probably partly due to the fact that I’m knitting 2×2 ribbing on DPNs using a gorgeous, slippery, splitty bamboo sock yarn. Nothing like jumping in the deep end, right?
Anyone else getting psyched for the ravelympics?
