Assemblage is huge and on my needles…

assemblage

Currently on my needles in my version of Assemblage by Norah Gaughan, knit in Sublime Angora Merino that I got an incredibly good deal on at The_Black Sheep.co.uk. (Seriously – if you are on a yarn diet, DON’T click on the link. £1.99 a ball is too hard to resist – which is why Ibought30balls! Mind you Assemblage takes 18…*)

I’m tweaking the pattern like crazy – mainly because I prefere the gauge I got, rather than the gauge I need, and to satisfy my general ‘knit everything at the same time, rather than in parts’ habit.

I’m amazed that I’ve almost completed the body already. On a good night I get about an hours worth of knitting done between FB going to bed and my turning in for the night. I don’t have the energy for much else at the moment.

(* Mind you, I don’t think it’s going to take 18 balls at this gauge. The body is going to take 5 1/2 balls, then all I need to do is knit the sleeves and the collar, so unless I’ve got something very wrong, that’s not going to take 12 1/2 balls.  I’m guessing I’m going to have 5 balls over. Enough for a shoulder shawl maybe? That would be very cool. 🙂

  1. Can I ask what is happening with your shop? I haven’t seen an update or new yarn in ages…have you stopped dyeing and selling yarn?

    • Hi – thanks for your comment.

      Things have been pretty quiet, and i haven’t got back to dyeing as quickly as i hoped to. But Oxford Kitchen Yarns still exists and i’m working hard to work out what that means for my family as it is now.

      I’ve definately got some plans, and some new lines that i’m working on. In the meantime i do have a few things to put into the shop, and hopefully that’ll happen very soon.

      thanks again – you comment was a gentle kick in the bum that i needed, and i really apreciate it. seriously.
