And the band for one of the front pieces. I am now almost finished the second front piece.
I had knitted up to decreasing for the armhole, when I realised that I had made another right front piece. So I had to pull it undone to the end of the band and start again to make it a left front piece. Boo Hiss.
Here is what I need help with. My daughter's grand mother used to have a tricky way of making the front and neck band as she knitted the left and right front pieces. My daughter had therefore cast on the stitches required for the band as well as for the right front as she started to knit it.
But neither of us has any idea how Vi used to do this. So all I have done is put the extra stitches onto a pin for later, and I thought I would simply knit that up when the fronts are finished.
How I wish I had asked Vi how she did that. Can anyone help with this?
Now. Can anyone guess what these are? Have you used them? Do you still have a few lurking in the depths of a drawer somewhere?
Its been quite cold these last few days. There's been snow in a number of places in NSW which don't normally get snow. So Friday was a 3 quilt day......
And there have been some spectacular skies too. I managed to capture a rainbow on camera the other day. First time ever I've seen both ends of the rainbow I think. This was taken from my front verandah mid morning just before a deluge hit.
You can't see it for the rain and fog, but behind the rainbow there should be a body of water and land in the background. I love watching the water - it looks different every time you look at it.
