Talking about baby knit, I got a little further with my cardigan. I'm even learning to knit with double pointed needles for it, happy to know that I will eventually be able to use that skill for a future pair of socks. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at keeping all my stitches on my needles, and currently, after I almost lost it yesterday, the cardigan looks like this:
Not too bad, except for this:
|There is a whole in my sleeve :-(|
Meanwhile, in weaving land, all is good. I was able to start and weave over 20 inches of piece #3, and I think it is my favourite pattern so far. It is also an easy pattern, but very quick to weave because there are several different steps in the treadling (It's goes much faster if I check how many more inches I have after doing 2 or 3 times a six-step treadling, than if I check after 2 or 3 2-steps one). I know, I'm not patient, but I'm on a deadline!
|End of previous piece, beginning of the new one. It's crazy what the difference the pedals' order can make!|
|Details of the new piece. I love it.|
And here is the system I described in my last post, for the broken threads.
|I can manage how long I want the correct thread to be.|
|The weights in the recipient help keeping the right tension.|
Until then, I hope to have something new for the next post, this is getting redundant!
