(Oh, and by the way, I've been eating those gingerbread cookies from the last post, and can tell you that candied fennel seed goes very well with gingerbread. Mmmm. I may have to bake the Christmas edition of these as well this year.)
So, for one of my friend's Christmas presents, I am making Letter Have It by Georgia A. Coleman. The name gives nothing away, and since the friend in question is not on Ravelry, the link is just for those who are and want to know. Anyhow, I somehow managed to muddle up the front piece twice. This is not because the instructions are difficult, but rather because I can't seem to read them correctly. The first time, I used garter stitch like the other pieces called for, and was nearly done when I realized it was supposed to be in stockinette. I finished anyway, thinking it would be fine once felted, but then realized that the colourwork would look odd and feathered with the blue purled bits where they were, and that the texture would be slightly different even after felting. So, I decided it was worth doing over, after all, it hadn't taken so very long anyhow (despite it involving my first attempts at intarsia in knitting).
I think I finally managed to split the two balls of Noro Kureyon into six (nearly) equal parts Spry (and that's a Knitty link, so anyone can take a look, as it's for me).
