Steeks ahoy

Just a quick post as we are off to Woolfest tomorrow amid much excitement (on my part anyway, Mr Knittingkitten is putting a brave face on it). I have finished a pair of socks just in time

So they will be accompanying me and hopefully do their job by keeping my toes warm in the tent at night. Now I’m afraid to say I can’t remember what the yarn is, except that I think it is American and contains some BFL, nor can I remember what the pattern is….bad blogger. I promise I will take more note in the future.

I have finished the main part of my throw so sewed up the steek stitches and attacked it with a large pair of fabric scissors. I am relatively new to steeking having avoided any pattern that required butchering my carefully knit stitches with a sharp instrument. However, as I like a little fair isle it is hard to avoid for long and now I am fairly confident I quite enjoy the challenge.

Fin kindly agreed to model the throw before I picked up the, gulp, 940 border stitches…

Ok enough for now as it is rather late and I promise to bring you back lots of wooly loveliness from Woolfest, if I must!
