This is the project I was working on the other day.
Schoeller and Stahl's 6 ply Limbo Mexiko, colour # 2586. I usually need 'a few' of these for Summerfolk, so I've been rooting through the stash looking for suitable candidates.
The Mexiko knit quite easily on the 54 needle cylinder (large hooked needles) at a tension about 3/4 turn looser than 4 ply setting.
Some other 6 ply I found in the stash:
This is Regia Crazy Color, colour # 5265, 6 ply 75/25 wool/nylon.
This is Opal 6 ply colour # 1710 , also 75/25 wool/nylon.
The last two pairs are my 'mid length' size, which is just short of the elbow. I start my tension a little looser at the elbow end, and reel it in near the wrist.
Some things grow in the cold:
And not just Jesse's coat!
My tomato plants are turning into monsters from hell. Already past 4' all with limbs spreading like pumpkin vines. There are lots of flowers and the fruit is now forming. While the fruit is behind schedule for the time of year, the vines certainly are ahead of the game.
I should prune the growth some...but where to begin! I.m afraid to go in there alone and unarmed....
Checkin' out some new genetics
I've been looking at these lately.
