Ooooo! Stitch ‘n Bitch for Blokes

Amazon link here.

Speaking of knitting, I have progressed beyond baby hats. I got all clever, and worked out how to turn the triangular “Swallowtail Shawl” into a square, which I have made into a blankie for my sister in law Christine, who is having a (girl) baby about three weeks after Ampersand is due.

Christine and her husband really wanted to be parents, and have struggled to conceive – I’m sure it was really hard for her to hear me being so ambivalent abut being pregnant, and I wanted to give her something special for her baby, to acknowledge that her baby is precious and special, and that I know she and Matt will be great parents.

Project Specs to come after blocking, weaving in ends, and photography.

  1. The cover scarf seems to be double-sided Fair-Isle. I didn’t know it was possible to do that – short of making two Fair-Isle patterns and sticking them back-to-back.
    Oh dear, way too many hyphens/dashes in that comment.


  2. I doubt it, knowing her previous work – maybe reviewers have made it out like that, but I don’t think she would be that patronising. Unlike the ABC 702 presenters this morning.
