apres ski 2

apres ski 2

I have a broken tooth that suddenly started causing me a LOT of pain on Saturday... I've been to the dentist, I'm on a wait list to have it pulled, and in the meantime, I'm completely screwed up on pain pills, which means that knitting anything that isn't mindless is a really bad idea. So the 1915 workbag is on hold for the foreseeable future.

But! Of course that means I've just found other things to make.... knitting has seriously kept me sane the past few days.

This is the Apres Ski Kerchief from Handknit Holidays.

Random vintage (probably '70s) acrylic from my stash, about 1/2 skein
#6 needles
One small change to the pattern: instead of M1 L/R for the edge increases, I did a YO. It's hard to see here, but it makes an eyelet edge that I like much better.

Excuse my appearance... it's obviously been a really rough week.

I should have another FO to show off by the end of today - it's drying after being felted, and then it needs a few finishing touches. :)

Something felted??? Oooh, can't wait to see. As I said on your blog, the kerchief is great!

Well, it's not anything *that* exciting, haha. I didn't finish it, but I think I'll post pictures anyway... I'm not sure about the embellishing I did, maybe I need opinions. :p

And thanks! I think I'll be knitting a lot more of these kerchiefs. They whip up so quickly!
