Wolfen Cam Monday
I got Mason-Dixon Knitting a while ago and here is my first project from the book.
I have another one! I finished the Razor cami. I used 5.5 balls of Jaeger Albany on #5 needles. The only change I made to the pattern was to do a 3 stitch I-cord for the straps. Oh, and I also split for the front and back at a different place than the pattern called for. I saw on the knitalong where people said that the straps ended up in the arm pit so I tried it on and figured out where I wanted the straps to be and split for the front and back that way.
When Michelle was here, she asked me to teach her how to knit. She happens to be left-handed. I tried to teach her the english way, cause that's how I knit...but that didn't work out too well. I finaly figured out how to knit continental (which I've been wanting to do for the longest) so that I could show her that way. That worked out better and by the time she left, she had a nice garter swatch knit up.
My friend, Michelle, is visiting for the week. Her birthday was at the end of July so I made her a necklace. She sent me a pic of a similar necklace a while ago and I figured I would surprise her with it...because I'm sure she forgot all about it since she asked sooooo long ago.
This past weekend, Christian's team got knocked out of the playoffs for baseball. 4 months of baseball has come to an end. Yippee!! Shhh, don't tell him I said that. Every weekend, we've treked out to Great Neck or somewhere near there out on Long Island. Here are some pics:
