This is mostly a knitting blog. Sometimes pictures of things I've made, sometimes not. I'm a guy who knits, I usually attend a men's stitch 'n' bitch on Monday nights, and I prefer natural fibres to artificial ones. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo yarns: I love what they can do and how they look, I hate how they are made. I've been knitting since about 2003, though I really didn't get into it until 2005, while convelescing with a broken leg. I must have discovered something good, 'cause I'm still knitting years later.

Ameeta Scarf

I am chugging along on my holiday knitting. Ask me at one point, and I am certain I'll get it all done. Ask me thirty minutes later, and I'll assure you that there is absolutely no way that I'll get it done before it needs to be shipped out. I have been hard at work on Deniss A. Saganai's Ameeta Scarf, the pattern for which can be found here:

It's a fun and funky basket weave scarf that I'm intending for a ten-year-old girl. I'm using Malabrigo Rios for it, in Purple Mystery. It is absolutely stunning. I have at least one, perhaps two, more repeats of the pattern before it's done. I'm hoping to finish it tonight.

Here's what it looked like this afternoon.
It has a scalloped edge which just tickles me!

Here is a view of the basket weave pattern.

The colour is so rich and imperial in its purpleness, that I am looking forward to taking a picture of it in the sunlight, just so its true hue can be seen.

When this one is done, I'll have only two more to go, and they are both more than half finished.
