Ongoing knitting: Trish

It has been a while since I published one of my own patterns. This one, called Trish, will come up when it is done, hopefully this week, else in a few weeks (I will be busy in the interim).

Yarn: M&K Mohair. Needles: 9mm (rek 5,5 mm). Will become: A rectangular shawl. You can see about a third of it in the picture. Unblocked as of yet as I am not finished, will post finished (or blocking, or both) pictures with the pattern.

So far creating lace patterns seem to be my thing...


  1. I like the way you put in the ruler to show the scale.

    It reminds me of the geologists (I work with a bunch of them) who always put in a rock hammer or a coin or a box of snus to indicate the scale of the pictures of rocks >:)

    Cold As Heaven

    1. Yes, and I have usually done so when photoing things I was selling, but I stopped at some point. It took me many years before I realised what was missing in my pictures! Of course, it isn't doable in all pictures, but in this case, when putting the items flat down, it was easy to do. I will have to be better about scale.

      By the way:
      I am listening to a book called Feynman's Rainbow but it is mostly a book about people, the physics is just a side character of sorts. Somewhat disappointing. Will have to look for something more rewarding for my next listen :D

    2. Feynman was one of the greatest physicists of the 20th century. He has written many interesting books, such as:
      Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman (anecdotes from his life as scientist)
      You Don't Care what Other People Think (more anecdotes)
      QED - The Strange Theory of Light and Matter (good popular science book, easy read)
      The Feynman Lectures on Physics (3 volumes; a complete course of basic physics)
      I have read all of these books, of course. It was more or less obligatory when I was a physics student >:)

      Cold As Heaven

    3. I have read some of them. This book is not by Feynman, it is self-biography by a guy who worked at CalTech in the eighties (thus being a colleague of sorts of F.). He references what Feynman said to him sometimes. I think the title is for selling the book, honestly.


Be nice!
