More public-knitting news in as much as the Dulwich knitting group were in a local magazine complete with feature on Cast Off and information about where you can download a pattern to knit a bakewell tart. They misquoted everyone, and of the load of photos she took they decided on a very unflattering one of unflattering yarns. I've spared you this pic in my shot above, you just get to see the knitted-tarts.
In other news, I have finished my Fairly Easy Fair Isle, hence that lovely green sleeve in the shot (beautifully bringing out the scab on my knuckle, don't you think?) but I'll post about that properly later in the week. Also in the photo is some progress on my first socks. However, this has now been seriously frogged due to a slight miscalculation on gage. Why is it I never trust patterns? Why?
This means I'm way behind Olympic schedule. So I either speed-knit (quite possible, but I don't want to rush these, they are gifts) or decide against the handicap of knitting in public (*wails* but I LIKED that idea) or re-challenge myself to only two pairs of socks. If the lack of parenthesis didn’t give it away already, I'm going for the last of those. And if on top of that, I finish my Pomatomus then all the better.
