We sampled a total of 14 yarns of various weights and from different manufacturers. I wasn't totally surprised to see that Cascade yarns was the hands-down winner. And one yarn that I loved at the warehouse show was totally disliked by my patrons. Good thing Barb wouldn't let me order it.
Projects I am working on include the fingerless mitts and hat for our class.
I worked on these rather devotedly last Wednesday, to the point that my carpal tunnel acted up. Not a good thing when one enters a knitting store and sees the owner wearing braces on both wrists. I've taken a wee break on this project.
Remember these socks? I have used a reinforcing thread for the heel, which you can't see here. I hope the recipient likes it.
The afghan project didn't make any progress as there was no class this week.
And look at my top! I am heading towards the shoulders now. You cannot see the cables around the armholes, but they are there.
I'm trying to use the Blogger app. for my I-Pad, and I do find it interesting, to say the least. I like the idea ... some of the interface works quite well, and some not so well. What I find works best, and somewhat defeats the purpose of blogging from the I-Pad is to do the quick post via the Blogger App. and then log on from a desk-top computer to finish. As I said, clunky but do-able.
Anyway, happy knitting everyone!
