Yarn Along – Knit, Frog, Knit

yarnalong_gsheller_gray

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

Miss Shirley’s Whippoorwill has been my main knit this week.
I was hoping to have it done for her birthday on Thursday,
now I’ll be glad if it is done by the of the month!
Presently I’m knitting on 467 stitches adding 2 stitches every row.
Today at the end of row 107 I had the wrong count
and found my mistake 16 stitches from the beginning,
that is a lot of stitches to frog.

I added 225 (+/-) beads on row 102, that was a long row.
I’ll add 235 (+/-) beads on row 112,
and 284 (+/-) beads on the bind off.
Beads are 8/0-451 Met Hematite, a solid dark grey, with a polished metal sheen.
I use Oral B Super Floss to add the beads following
Laura Nelkin’s instructions here .

Heather’s baby blanket I love it!

I love the way the the long colors of Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball striped in this blanket.

Shattered by Dick Francis was my knitting companion.
I like Dick Francis’ books, England and horse racing — a good mix.
