Hemlock


Did you know that the Apiaceae plant family contains many toxic species, such as Conium maculatum (hemlock), yet also includes carrots, parsley, cilantro and cumin? Socretes would probably have not appreciated this pattern as much as I do.
This was the longest bind off in the history of knitting, and the most nerve-wracking by far... I had a total of 3 INCHES of yarn left when I bound off the last stitch!

A long, long time ago...


So I finished the mitered square blanket awhile back, and it's wrapped up and ready to go to its new owner this Sunday. I also knitted a cute little short-sleeved baby jacket that matches!
I've been knitting a lot for as hot as it is: socks for jeff and my Euroflax version of the Hemlock Ring Doily. And, I just started the blanket version of the Hemlock Ring last night!
