Late To The Party ~ Make It Monday

One final test knit for the Matinée duo. I wanted to refine the construction technique and I think this is best, not to mention less hassle. Matinée I ~ Opal is finished and here is her portfolio:

So Matinée I is the closed loop version and II is open with bands at each end to be lapped and pinned or buttoned or to be worn as a traditional scarf. Both versions are reversible, quick and easy to knit. Customizing is easy too. I hope to have the final patterns finished and available soon. Cheers all! :)

From The Main Blog ~ Schultertuch / Dreieckstuch Is Off The Hook :)

This was a "feel good" weekend for me and I hope for you too. Nothing pressing in the garden - the last few plantlings are in, I bought and used my plant start and won't do anything major again until the next four babies arrive and I have to move a grandpapasan hosta. I finished reading Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, a very interesting book, especially in detailing how that incident impacted world events. I also finished up my Schultertuch / Dreieckstuch or as I call it: Pretty Maids All In A Row (for the scallop / cockle pattern). Here is her portfolio :):

From The Main Blog ~ Keeping You In Stitches Saturday

Personally, I like to think that I look like this when I'm knitting: A little wine, a little cashmere... let's P2tog Handsome! Do you know what your knitting face is? Find out here at Love Knitting - So worth the giggles :D :
In the interest of full disclosure; I am often a tongue-out knitter and sometimes its variation: "the lipless smile". Thank god I live alone as that face bears an unfortunate resemblance to my kiddos' "poop face"! "The Lipless Smile" knitting face. Or... err... "The Poop Face", in other circles ;-)
