I went boating, but ended up fishing. Friday we only
caught one fish. We fished for Walleye in the morning,
and Perch in the afternoon.
This is Walleye Knitting:
I should be able to finish it up this week.
When we Walleye Fish, I have to be able to throw the
knitting down at a moment's notice. Joe has 4 rods
going at once. I help watch for bites, grab the net,
steer the boat. It can be exhausting! LOL. I worked hard
to turn the heel on this before we went so that part was done.
This is Perch Knitting:
Business Casual Socks. Free on Ravelry.
Every row has 4 cable stitches (I use a toothpick) and
takes a lot of concentration. When we perch fish, I don't have to
do anything. Sometimes drive the boat but that's all...very low
I love the colors of this yarn
have to drag both colors with me. The blue is Knitpicks stoll...lovely
yarn. Nice a squishy
The pinky bluey minty yarn is from Indy Dyer, I've had
in stash for a long time. These socks are for Joey's girlfriend.
She saw socks with this pattern over the winter and told me how
much she liked them. It took a couple of trys to get the color
combo just right with the pattern. She is size 10 so I usually have
to us two yarns for her to make it stretch.
I started a baby kimono this week also. Using Ellen's
Half Pink Tencel yarn. Not sure if I will give this or save
it for another little boy.
The garter was not as soft....I might try to make it a little
bigger than the intended size.
Also this week, I made a little car hat to go with the baby
sweater last week with car buttons. I still have to block
both of them.
Ruth and Martha have been busy also.
Ruth is working on Clue 4 of Through the Loops Mystery Shawl.
Martha is working on a sock that was on Knitty.
Angular Velocity pattern.
Madelinetosh yarn. So pretty!
This is the big fish Joe caught.
9 lb Walleye
