Speed Knitting

May 2007

My needles have been flying lately and it’s going to be a long haul flight!  I have a merchant table at the upcoming Victoria FibreFest and Knit-Out on June 10 at Saxe Point Park in Esquimalt on Vancouver Island.  I’m taking my patterns, kits and yarn to sell at the Knit-Out.  Many of my samples are in yarns that are now discontinued or that I don’t carry.  It’s time to knit some fresh samples in colourways that I can offer people, so that means lots of knitting between now and then.

soccer knitting Aidan parts

The weather in Vancouver is finally allowing me to knit outdoors, so here I am at Devan’s soccer practice last Friday.  By Friday night I had all the parts for the Aidan vest.  Just need to pull out the blocking board before finishing it up.

Petticoat and Green Kieran back

Saturday night I cast on for a new Kieran in a fresh green with a pretty blue, pink and green self-patterning.  I just now finished the back – 24 hours later.  I had lots of opportunity today to knit while at a Guild executive meeting, then later tonight while visiting after we had my Dad over for his birthday dinner.
