Knit Along: Wednesday 12th October 2011

Ginny over at Small Things says:

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. ~ 

On my needles is the Quick Knit 1940's Style Sweater.  It actually is a very quick to knit pattern- but read the starting instructions carefully :)  I had to frog it a couple of times!

No book this week, but rather a magazine.  I had been hoping to get hold of the latest Country Living UK, but it wasn't there.  Instead, I had English Home- the December/Christmas edition.  I could not resist the allure of traditional Christmas eats and stuff :)
I do beg pardon for the quality of lighting in the photo- but apparently night-time is not the best time to take the photos ;)  Oh well, it does at least give a great look at the twisted stitch of my top!

Underneath, is a very bad picture of the skirt I am making the top for- my circle skirt.  I was too late for the initial circle skirt sew along- but Casey says she'll be hosting another party, so I shall try and get the petticoat done so I can participate :)
The skirt is finished though!

To see more knit-along participants, hop on over to Ginny's blog!


  1. That sweater looks so impressive! Is it cable knitted?

  2. It IS a cable stitch- but a small one that you use a tricky twist to make :) But very simple to do :)
    Basically every other row I am just twisting two stitches.

  3. I LOVE the fabric for your skirt and it goes beautifully with the top. Go to look for that English Home. I love that magazine.

  4. I have one magazine that I have to hunt down every year too. It's the Canadian Living Christmas mag. One year I bought it and two other people bought it for me too!!!

  5. Jill- thanks :) Mine was in Barnes and Noble...
    Keri- sounds like a great time to share :) There are just some magazines worth the trouble ;)

  6. The start to your sweater looks lovely :) Knitting cables is on my list of things to try this winter :) Happy knitting!
