Baked Alaska Urchin
Yarn: Baked Alaska from the Hello Yarn Fiber Club October
Modification: Used size 13 needles and only knit 6 wedges
Duration: 2 evenings
(While watching Talladega Nights. I have a thing for Will Ferrell movies)
Loved knitting this pattern even though I had to frog it a couple times. Took a couple passes to figure out my tracking system for this one. Short rows are my friends now.
Love that it's shaped like a Baked Alaska.
Also love that I feel a little like channeling Faye Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde while wearing. Her wardrobe and styling in that film are exceptional.
Another FO from my own handspun. Serious satisfaction.
Hello Yarn Fiber Club September 2007 "Maldives" Merino 210 Yards 9 wpi
This brings me all up to date on the fiber clubs. Yeah! Esp. since I just placed another Hello Yarn order. I can't help myself.
Another attempt at Navajo Plying. Soon I may have to try an entire bobbin's worth.
And more spinning. Cybercandycane. 2 Slivers of Corriedale plyed together into 115yds of worsted weight. More on the way. Soon to be knit into a Christmas Stocking. 'Tis the Season. :-)
I joined the local Spinning Guild. Super excited to hang with the gals on the first Saturday of each month at the Osceola, WI Medical Center. Some are knitters, some are spinners. Everyone's welcome so... Come on!
