Moebius knitting

I have been checking out patterns for Moebius knitting on Ravelry. I am excited about trying this and have put a hold on Cat Bordhi’s Magical Knitting book at the library. I think a nicely draped shawl in a soft yarn I would love. What yarn to use? I would probably buy a cheap one for my first try but eventually would like to make one in a soft decadent fiber. 

Since finishing the Icelandic Yoke Sweater which is much better now that I adjusted the neck line, I have decided to pick up the Fair Isle sweater I am working on for my MIL. I am working on the second sleeve right now and it is coming along well. I am wondering if I might run out of yarn though, so I may change it up by switching around where I use the different colors. I think it will still look fine if I do this. The other option is order more yarn from Philosopher’s Wool, but I would rather make due with what I have.

Here is a picture of one of the sleeves:

The wave socks are pretty much hibernating right now. I really should finish it up. Maybe I will work on that today instead. I really should, shouldn’t I? OK , sock it is. 

Oh, I also have a book to pick up from the library. It is one of Barbara Walkers stitch books. I want to take a look at them to see if it is something I would want to add to my library in the future.

Happy Knitting!

  1. For Hanukkah I got Barbara Walker’s “A Treasury of Knitting Patterns.” It has some really interesting patterns, although a lot of the patterns in the first part of the book seem to be mainly knit and purl sequences. The second half of the book is much more useful to me as it has some great lace and cable patterns that aren’t in my other stitch books.

  2. Thanks Emily,
    I didn’t get to the library today. I think the book that’s in is the second one. I also ordered Knitting Around book and DVD with a X Mas gift card. Can’t wait for that to come in!

  3. Hi Amy,

    I’m pretty open minded about potential jobs, but I really just want something more creative than what I was doing (and preferably closer, or on the Hudson Line!). My commute was really wearing me out and the pay just wasn’t enough to justify it.
