I got finished knitting Ixchel earlier this week, then my Mom very kindly wove in my ends (I have an awesome Mom!). I blocked it yesterday, and this morning it is ready to go! I could not be happier with it. There are one or two things I’d do differently if I was to make… Continue reading Ixchel is Done!
I am so close to done with my Ixchel – just a few more inches on the second sleeve to knit! I have 8 more rows of plain knitting, then about 2 inches of ribbing, then casting off. So close! Of course then there’s weaving in ends, and blocking, and very possibly undoing the waist… Continue reading Ixchel – Actual Progress
I didn’t have a whole lot of time to knit tonight, but I did get a little bit done on sleeve #2. Two more rows in the allover pattern, and then I start to do the sleeve decrease and just the arrow and moon pattern down the center of the sleeve. Starting to see a… Continue reading Ixchel – Sleeve #2
Got done with sleeve #1 this evening which watching the finale of the most recent season of the Great British Bake-Off! I really just had the ribbing and bind-off to go, so it didn’t take too long. I did try it on, and it fits really nicely, and the sleeve is just long enough, but… Continue reading Halfway Off Sleeve Island
Well, I pretty much gave away the point of this post in the title 🙂 My Ixchel body is done, and I am knitting away on the first sleeve. There are a lot of rows to go on the sleeve, but it is flying along because there are so many fewer stitches than for the… Continue reading Ixchel – Body Done, Sleeve 1 in Process!
Still moving along with Ixchel I spent a lot of today doing some cleaning and also decorating for Halloween, so didn’t get to focus on it as much as I might have otherwise. Also, the yoke size is increasing, like they do, so each row takes a little while. However – it’s moving along! Still… Continue reading Ixchel Again
Ixchel progresses! It’s coming along pretty well, and I’m enjoying watching the colors reveal themselves! There are a lot of repeats of smallish patterns between the big central ones on the front and back, so it’s just interesting enough to keep me out of trouble 🙂 It is moving along pretty quickly, too!
As yet more proof that I can be thrown off my plan by almost anything, this week I started knitting the Ixchel (apparently pronounced ee-SHELL), a pattern that did not exist in my world up until a month ago or so. This in spite of having kits in my possession for up to three years… Continue reading Ixchel!
Today was a very knitty day! DH and I had a few errands to run today, just generally getting some tasks done. We did stop for lunch at Bombay Deluxe, our local Indian restaurant, where I got a little public knitting in before having some very tasty matar paneer. The project is an entrelac kercheif… Continue reading Knitting In Public and Otherwise
