it has been a bit of a busy week. but in between i have managed to squeeze in a bit of knitting. the photography has been partially on hold, in that i haven't had much time to get outside, but i have spent some good time at the climbing gym taking shots for their new website - when it's up and running you will be able to see all my hard work on the design and my photos as well!
i thought i should post some progress shots - first are the variegated blue fingerless gloves i am working on - almost done and the knitting goes quite fast, but i keep getting distracted by other projects. you can only see one mitt in this photo, but the second is nearly there as well. i thought this best showed the design. i am using patons classic merino, which i seem to go to again and again. i was initially not quite sold on the variegated colour - i like mixes, but it almost seemed to change too quickly and too regularly. but knit up i find it much more appealing. hopefully the recipient of these babies will also be happy.
the second picture shows a much slower going - fingerless mitts as well, but for me this time. i am LOVING the SWS - so soft, but as you can see i have also been distracted from this project. so what has been distracting me you ask?
i think these turned out quite well - i wanted an easy knit with a quick pattern but still having some interest. my dad says they look like norwegian ski socks. perhaps... i used scheepjes invicta extra, and i love the red. knit on 2mm, with a short row heel and as usual the magic cast on for toe up socks.
next on the horizon? hmmmm....
