Pink Power, People!

Posted by Nanc

It doesn’t seem like I’ve been knitting at all lately. Work is… well, work and it robs all the good hours of my day. But I have been knitting, a bit.

I’ve finished another ball of yarn on my niece’s poncho (no pic, sorry), which is definitely progress. And I’ve knit up some scarves and things to sell at a local bazaar. (Again, no pix. My bad.) Mostly, though, I’ve sewn in the ends and did finishing work. I haven’t heard yet if anything of mine sold, but I’m not too worried. If it sells, great – yarn money. If it doesn’t, even better – completed holiday gifts. It’s all good.

I did, however, get one little FO done. It’s a pink wristband with a darker pink ribbon. A gaggle of us gals from SnB are planning to participate in the Race (er, walk) for the Cure. As something more to bind us together, we’ll all wear hand-knitted wristbands.

You can thank Photoshop for that tough background!

As for the knitting details? The wristband pattern is from the Stitch ‘n Bitch book, and we found an awareness ribbon chart online (here is one, I can’t find the other now).

I didn’t carry my two yarn (Lion Brand CottonEase) colors together like the pattern said, and I made the larger size. Since wristbands should be a *little* snug, it’s too big and I plan to make another. Besides, I want to try out the other ribbon chart and add a third color. I’m also not v. happy about the seaming and may try it on circs next time.
