another busy day yesterday - did some tai chi, some mending, visited at the hospital with a cousin who drove in from the laurentians to see mum, wrote up the meet me in st louis-inspired muff and and matching muffler patterns! you can download it here. techniques you will need: grafting (or three-needle bind-off if you don't like grafting), figure-8 cast on (great tutorial on knitty.com), cabling, i-cord. there's also a small amount of sewing together for the muff. they're knit in bulky, so they go pretty quickly. enjoy!
n.b.: i was going to put pics in the pdf, but that made it 7 megs instead of 35 k... so until i get around to editing images, you'll just have to look for them here.
