I usually like to post every other day but apparently have a real job that requires me to be actually working (not knitting) makes that difficult. I’m gonna shoot for once or twice a week and call it a success. Anyway, I knitted a thing. The knitting’s been done for a while actually, but I’ve just recently (meaning last week) gotten photos of it. In my defense, I’ve been deep in the throes of another TV show obsession (BBC’s Sherlock if you must know. I have a thing for pretty British blokes who are clearly madly in love with each other).

On to the knitting.

Pattern: None, am sort of writing it up. Need to make another prototype.
Needles: US 5/3.75 mm straights
Yarn: 50/50 wool/acrylic

Yes, I wore tights. No, you cannot see my skivvies. Yes, I possibly had to shop out some lines. DON’T JUDGE ME. (And for the record, I am firmly on the side of tights are not pants, but you gotta do what you gotta do.)

Anyway, I put off photographing this for so long because I was convinced I would come up with a way to attach it to my socks without threading the ties through the ribbing and tying them together. I didn’t, obviously. I have to make another one for gauge/size issues anyway (this one was too big til I chucked it in the washing machine and drier and it shrunk a bit). I’ll probably attach something different to that one.

The pattern for this (if anyone’s interested) is sort of written but needs to be developed for clarity. On the off chance you’re interested in testing, please shoot me an email (or comment; I get those in my email too) and I’ll let you know if it’ll be ready for testing any time soon. I’d like it to be since I haven’t released a new pattern in a while and I’d like to continue expanding my library.

Unfortunately I have a billion sharks to knit first. Yes, still. Yes, I’m sick of them. I’m almost done though. I think. I hope.

Day six and I’m still going! The other day I cast on for a new project (Startitus. I has it). I have a desperate love of garter belts, lots of socks and tons of yarn, so…

I’ve got a bit more than this now, but it’s going pretty well. It’s linen stitch (I really really love linen stitch) in a worsted weight wool/acrylic blend on 3.75mm straights. It’s going to have corset lacing in the back and I think the fronts will fasten together somehow, but I haven’t worked out what yet. This is my first version, which should be practical at least, and I’ll make another to fine tune the pattern in some wool/silk yarn I have.

And no, I probably won’t have modeled shots. Of me in my knickers anyway. I’ll probably put on tights then long socks over that.

I’m currently plugging away at my Karlsro sweater (almost to the sleeves!). Then I’ll probably work on the wwfy sweater in mohair for a bit. And then I’ll probably cast on for a billion things. Cause that’s how I do.
