this week's knitting....

Is blocking on the bed.  it is Annis which I changed a little, this was supposed to have nupps. but it has beads and I like it better for it.  It was above 90 degrees today, but I decided that blocking it was what was needed, so here it is.   

I like things that are not very deep so I can wear the deeper part in front and wrap it so the ends come around to the front.  This was a really nice pattern for all those requirements!  Now maybe back to socks, though I do have a big lightweight shawl on the needles now.  I took a visual inventory of my sock yarn and I have to live to be 130 years old and knit every day to use it up, but even with those requirements I wanted a skein or two of the new Rowan sock yarn.  Sigh. 

 
 

and for those who can't see the beads... hmmm black beads on a black background, I can't see them either, I just know they are there... they DO show when it is not blocked on black, I hope.

But where are the beads? Can't seem to see them....

Thank you. They were disguising themselves as holes.... ;-)

Lovely work. I bet the beads twinkle a bit too?

I thought they looked like holes when I really looked at them. Isn't it funny how you don't really SEE something you know.. A painting instructor I had years ago used to make us turn paintings to the wall for a month, then look at them. It was fascinating how much they had "changed" in a month without us touching them :-) They are shiny, but not too bright. I have noticed I always go for calm beads as opposed to something bright. Maybe bright the next time!
