YOP11 Week 49 & 50/52 – Ship Shape progress


The Highland Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers tried out a new location on Saturday. The Highland Hotel dates back to 1911 when people used to come to Strathpeffer (a spa village) to sample the waters.

I wasn’t ready with a project for either wheel so, as it was worldwide knit in public day, I just took my jumper along. I can’t knit and chat very successfully but made some progress on the sleeves.

I think I’m going to be playing yarn chicken on this Ship Shape jumper so I am knitting a little on each arm and will see how long I can make the sleeves before I run out. I haven’t done the bind off on the hem of the body yet, just in case I need to remove or can add some rows.

The photo was taken on Friday…by Saturday it’s like an octopus of yarn strands so a struggle to photo well.


When I was away I bought some fabric and I have since bought a couple of patterns and I’m not sure yet which I’ll make as I need to measure the fabric I bought. It was sold by weight as it was in the roll ends and remnants.
