WIP Wednesday 57: Twiddling










...my thumbs. Short and sweet post today, as you won't believe how much time twiddling sucks up.

Mini Diva went back to school yesterday, Destructo Boy today. I popped into town to remedy the parenting fail discovered this morning: no new school socks for Destructo Boy. This - of course - led me to also top up their stash of pants and vests - it's been all too easy to believe in the arrival of autumn with the recent gales and winds; it's the earliest that I remember DH being winded off at the port, too.

I've been pretty consistent with my efforts, so that I've now completed one sleeve of the Vintage Cabled Sweater; I modified it so that there is only one cable framed either side by a mock cable, rather than a full repeat of the front & back pattern: I thought this would be quicker, easier, and also, if done in the full pattern, when put together, the whole effect might be a little ... too much:



And I may just complete UberCool Brother's scarf this week too:



Let's just pretend that the bottom of the photo being missing is totally on purpose. There's some great photos of things to look at over at Tami's Amis ....

  3. I really do like the pattern on the Brother's Scarf. Definitely a lovely unisex pattern that a guy wouldn't be embarrassed to wear. And the color is amazing!

  8. The knitting is looking wonderful, as always. I'm starting to feel guilty weather-wise. We gripe if the overcast isn't cleared by 10, and SF is just about to enter its true summer.
