Knitting & Diving, knitting and diving...
This day we spotted a darling Caribbean Squid - so cute! It was just hovering over this coral and wasn't shy at all. Most of the sea creatures are unafraid of divers. As this is a protected marine park, they are used to us bulky blobs of human matter moving slowly through their neighborhood and doing no harm.

Oh yes, a kind reader asked for the patterns from the last post. The man-thong pattern is free on KNITTY.COM
Here are my instructions for the warmer:
size 5 dpns
DK weight yarn.
CO 24, join.
knit 2 rounds
YO, k2tog all around one round (for eyelet holes for ribbon to tie the thing on)
Continue knitting in the round until you have the desired length before shaping the end.
k6, k2tog around
k5, k2tog around
continue knitting one less stitch before the k2tog until you have 6 sts left. cut yarn and thread thru end to gather.
Find a willing wearer and Enjoy!
Thanks Terri! Aren't you proud of Heather on Meerkat? I sure am! From the pictures she been sending this week, she's catching on quickly, her tension looks pretty good.Post a Comment
