fake sheep

a website about vegan knitting


it’s amazing how much my creative productivity increases when i should be doing other things. we’re probably about 65% through packing the house, but in breaks between thinking about the best ways of putting things in boxes, i’ve started this:

mutineer singlet

i did some more gauge swatching and practice stitch patterns with the mutiny! yarn yesterday:

mutinous stitches

and came to the conclusion that this yarn actually wants to be a sleeveless top rather than a cardigan (which is just as well, because based on how much i’ve knitted so far, i think i have exactly enough for something singlety. of course, now i’m tempted to buy the rest of this yarn to make a matching sleeve-thing.) so, i cast on and knit a moss stitch border and some straight stockinette, and i’m about to start on waist shaping!

okay, i’d better go and pack some more now.

I love the way the colors and texture pop out in moss stitch. Lovely!

thanks jennifer! i really like the colours of this yarn too – i’m not usually a huge fan of pink, but i like this stuff.

I can’t believe my yarn made it to New Zealand before me!

It’s looking pretty! I can’t wait to see what you turn it into. Send me a pic when your done and I’ll start some kind of gallery or something for Black Stitchers.

Ohhh, that is very, very pretty, your new pink Mutiny! project. I’ll be anxious to see how it progresses. Good work!

well, i am a huge fan of pink and fell instantly in love with the mutineer so i just went to black stitch and bought the rest of it before i even finished reading your post.

…and then i read that you might want more for your sleeves! i’m sorry moira, if you want more, i’ll have her send it to you instead.
