New KnitCast

The new KnitCast is here! This one is an interview with Kate Gilbert, the designer of the Clapotis (I think I must be the only knitter ever who hasn't knitted one and has no particular plans to! I think it is a lovely pattern but can't really see myself wearing it).

I've given up on the weather cheering up enough to take a progress photo of the multi-coloured cotton jumper outside so here is one of it taken on the settee:


Its coming along. I think I am only a couple of stripes away from the start of the neckline - it is going to be a V-neck. Once I reach the underarm I shall put the body on stitch holders and work both sleeves, and then work out how I am going to do the shoulders.

Apart from the knitting I have been very domesticated recently (quite shocking I assure you). Today I defrosted both freezers and yesterday we actually got round to fitting a new light fitting in the bathroom (the old one broke weeks, maybe even months ago), and I only electrocuted myself once! We decided that was enough DIY for the time being so we haven't put up the shelves in our bedroom yet. I am hoping to get round to that before my parents come to stay in a couple of weeks, since at the moment you can't actually even sit on the spare bed let alone sleep on it.

Anyway, back to the cotton jumper, I think I am going to do a purple stripe next ...

And happy Independence Day to any Americans out there.

    Ah, don't worry ... you aren't alone in the clapotis-free knitting life. I can't bear the thought of knitting something with such a tragic name! LOL

    P.S. I love your hat obsession. I, too, am totally hat obsessed!
