We then went for lunch at Go For Thai at Dundas St. and Glen Hill Dr. (in the same plaza as the Coffee Culture at which we spin on Monday nights). The meals were tasty and the servings were large. All three of us took home leftovers.
Then we decided to drop in at Kniterary as neither Marion or Elaine had been there in a while. I couldn't resist the Berroco Link yarn after I had seen Marion's scarf. 19mm needles (US size 35) are required. Fortunately I already had a set of them at home. The pattern is on the back of the ball band. In an hour, I finished the scarf! (I just needed to tuck the yarn tail in better).
I bought some beautiful Berroco Borealis yarn in a multicoloured colourway and spent some time on Ravelry trying to find an appropriate neck-warmer pattern. I had one half-knit before I realized I didn't like it after all.
All this knitting, by the way, was being done while I was watching all 8 hours of Ken Follett's "Pillars of the Earth" DVDs I've borrowed from the library and need to return next week. I've been listening to it on my iPod touch. I'm ready to start CD 14 of 32. It's 47 hours of listening, apparently. When I get sick of listening, I've also borrowed the book and actually read sometimes. I had planned to finish the book/CDs before watching the DVDs but they arrived back at the library last week so I could borrow them. I'm not sure if I'll finish reading and listening to it but I have enjoyed it thus far. But I digress...
I finally decided to do a ribbed Moebius inspired by the Rib Stitch Chunky Moebius on Ravelry.
I knit one round and then began the 1 x 1 ribbing.
After about 10 rounds, I decided I didn't like the ridge in the centre formed by that one pesky round of knitted stitches so tomorrow I'm going to frog it, cast on again and start right away with the 1 x 1 ribbing.
