UFO#1 finished!

May 2, 2010

Here’s UFO #1, a shrug knitted from this pattern. (Warning: link goes straight to a PDF download.)

I even blocked it! I tried to take a photo of it on, but all the mirrors in the house are in shocking locations light-wise:

It was knitted in “Earth Sky” on blue-faced leicester, light aran weight, from The Yarn Cafe/evoke yarns. I knitted a size medium, and the only change I made was to knit a garter stitch border of five stitches on both sides to prevent the edges rolling. It used about 130g of yarn.

Next: the Thuja socks that I started knitting two years ago. I’ve now made it down to the heel flap on the second sock (wait! Since I saved the draft post I’m on to the foot. Yay!). These will be nice warm house socks for winter.

The problem I can see with having left the second sock so long is that my gauge seems to be a little different; I’m knitting tighter so the sock is a bit smaller. They’re stretchy, though, so both will fit and they’re only for around the house.
