Ok, ma deuxième tricopine, FruitySpirit, vient de recevoir ma lavette – Tournesol – je me suis bien amusée à la faire. La seule chose qui a pris du temps c’est que chaque pétale est tricotée individuellement. Moi qui est horreur des finitions, j’avais des fils à rentrer partout. Enfin, c’est le résultat qui compte.

 

OK, my second swap knitting partner, FruitySpirit, received my dishcloth – Sunflower – I had fun knitting it. The only thing that took a little time is that each petal is knitted individually. I had many threads to weave in, but the result was great, and that is the most important thing.

Une de mes tricopines de la ronde des lavettes – JPacquin – a reçu aujourd’hui la lavette que je lui avait tricoté. J’ai utilisé une laine en coton chiné verte clair et une autre dans le ton mauve pale, et puis j’ai mélangé tout cela. Voici quelques photos:

My swap-knitting partner – JPacquin – received her package today. I am able to show you what I sent her since it is no longer a secret. I  used a combination of 2 colors, light green and pale mauve, and knitted a “woven stitch” . here are some photos, front and back:

My Olympics games,

The Olympic games in Beijing have started, but here in Austin, TX, they are going as well. I joined the “knitting and crochet” Olympics, organized by Ravelry, and signed up to “compete” in the event of “WIP Wrestling”, which is about finishing a bunch of projects. The project needs to be a challenge to complete in 17 days.  For me, it is about pulling out knitting stuffs that i shoved in a bag. All there is to do is a little sewing here and there, it is so simple, it frustrates me!

Here in Texas, taking a car ride means driving at least 5 to 6 hours, so I stay busy in the passenger seat knitting (no, I do not knit as I drive).  I have enjoyed making round dishcloths. My first ones were 1 solid color, then I begun working with 2 and sometimes 3 colors, alternating stiches as well. Baby hats and baby blankets are fun too!  Yes, there are many gifts on this blanket that are overdue! 

I am competing for Team French, check-out our blog! You will meet a group of very talented women

Here is my pile to finish before the flame goes up on August 24th:

 

 

 

 

I am also knitting a shawl, but I am not pleased with it so far. I think bigger needles will give a nice effect.  I thought, I was prepared, or maybe I am too picky! I hope to have some photos posted soon.

 

Make it a great day!
