Given & Received

A little late as a Christmas gift for my sister, but that's what happens sometimes. The yarn was initially a bulky weight consisting of four strands of lace weight which I split. Pyramid Charlie went smoothly before I noticed some errors about three quarters through. I guess it was understandable given the complex, simultaneous transitions. I love how the diamond turned out on this one, outlined in seed stitch. Fixing the errors tacked on some unexpected overtime, but it turned out really beautiful.

A fitting gift considering she got me one of these babies:
Got a Swift!
This swift accommodates my six footer skeins rather nicely. It's gonna save me a bunch of time. Up until now I've been using my camera tripod which was a rather slow solution. With a winder and a swift I feel like a real knitter now. Will it be enough to get me off World of Warcraft? Yeah, probably. Okay yeah, definitely.

Whew! There's been nothing but 'doing' around here lately. Aside from the sweater-cide, I re-did Carve Bravo a total of three times before I got somewhere I wanted to be with it. I'd say it turned out pretty cool. This yarn knit up a wonderfully distressed fabric. It looks lovingly broken in. I should have it up in the shop later on today.

Here are some thread weight multi strand sweaters that I'd been avoiding till my yarn winder made my life easier.
