I’m getting excited about the Madrona mitten workshop. I leave Thursday morning, come back Monday evening.
I’m in the midst of the lace & intarsiaÂ part of Emily.Â Luckily I was able to use the same size needle for both parts, unlike I originally feared;Â after initial swatching I thought I’d use a US4 for the Traveller and a US2.5 for the Gaia, but I’ve ended up using the US2.5 for both parts.Â The Traveller is knitting up well, giving a tight yet squooshy fabric.Â I think (hope) I’m still on track for finishing that section before the trip.
Of course there’s no other knitting of which to speak.
Garden-wise, we harvested another 20 or so tomatoes.Â I’ve not tried to do any preserving;Â we’re just eating them, usually in salad (mozzarella) or on sandwiches.
