I'm knitting a neat pattern: Clinton Vest in Tahki's Ripple, (pattern here) in a colour of olive that's going to go with so much (colour #16). It's fun so far. Picture soon.
So, slow knitter that I am, I am only just now approaching the sleeves of Emmaline. To date I have knit small circumference items using two circulars, but I don't have two circulars of the right size for this top, so bought a set of five bamboo double-points at Len's Mill. (I love Len's Mill - we don't have them in Toronto, so when I discovered the Guelph Len's Mill store I was amazed - it's a bit like a small Honest Ed's or a big BiWay, with yarn and needles in one section. I still do a lot of yarn shopping on-line but when you just want a set of needles or some reliable feltable Patons Classic Wool, it's the place.)
Anyway, some of the on-line tutorials for knitting with DPNs are a bit awful. I like this one from Knit Picks: http://www.knitpicks.com/tutorials/Double_Pointed_Needles__D118.html It's to the point (no pun actually intended). I'll see how it goes.
We're supposed to be heading to my brother-in-law's cottage for a few days, but haven't left yet. Food-poisoning has stricken the prodigal son, so I need to make sure he's on the mend before we leave him home holding the fort. While at the cottage, I'll be working on:
"Emmaline" from last summer's Knitty (http://knitty.com/ISSUEss10/PATTemmaline.php). Using some stash Bernat Gloucester, held doubled. So far, so good.
