For the most part, I've managed to stay on the yarn diet. Sock yarn of course doesn't count and I allowed the yarn for a charity project. Two projects helped reduce the stash of organic cotton left over from other projects.
Pattern: Little Bee Capelette by Yumiko Sakurai
Yarn: Pakucho and Bernat Organic cotton, worsted weight
Needles: Size 6 and 8
I have not seen the only baby in our family for awhile since she is in Minnesota. I hope it is wearable.
Yarn: Pakucho cotton
Needles: 16 in size 8 circular
CO 66 stitches. Join to knit in the round. Place a marker. K1P1 ribbing for 8 rows. (I used two colors since I had a scrap to use up)
Row 1: k12, P2, k5, p2, knit to end.
Cable row: K12, P2, place 3 stitches on cable needle, hold in front, K2 from left needle and knit 3 off cable needle.
Repeat row 1 5 times, then knit a cable row.
Continue until 10 cables are made. Repeat row 1, 2 times.
Turn inside out. Do a 3 needle bind-off. Sew in ends.
My netbook is 9x7 inches. The sock is 9x10 inches.
I'm on Maui this week for a conference. It's pretty darn nice here! Molokini and Molokai are just out the corridor window.
