4th of July was fun. We went to Battleship Cove in Fall River, which was far more interesting than I thought it would be! They have a destroyer, a cruiser, a submarine, and a huge battleship. That battleship is enormous, it used to carry 2000 crew -- an entire floating city. I didn't take any pictures, but I will the next time we go. It's an all-day activity and we only took half the day, which means there's much, much more to see.
Now, because this is a knitting blog, back to knitting. Tangerine Twist, or rather, Pink Twist, is making progress. There were some peculiarities about the pattern and I had to tweak a thing or two, but so far, I'm happy with the way it's coming along. It's a fun knit.
Am I the last person on the planet to knit these? Yes, it's Jaywalkers! The yarn is the Amethyst Stripe Shepherd Sock that was meant to become Sock Pal socks but didn't work with the Conwy pattern. So instead, it's becoming Jaywalkers. And it's working really well with this pattern, if I may say so myself.
It's been a busy weekend, but I even made progress on the Baltic Sea Stole. I like the fabric much better now that I'm using US 3 needles. I'm knitting it loosely on purpose, which is easier on the hands, makes the decreases easier, and still produces a lovely drape. And now, there's stitch definition, which was lacking before. I'm happy.
I hope everyone to whom it applies had a great July 4th!
