I finished the draft blocker today.
Yarn: Two strands held together of Lambs Pride Worsted, took a little under three skeins, it was especially close with the green.
Needles: US size 11 Clover Bamboo, 16 inch circulars.
(This was my first time with bamboo, eh; I don't see what the big deal is.)
Time: umm, two trips to my parents, plus another hour umm... three and a half hours, maybe a little more.
I got the pattern from one of the ladies at my local knit night, if she says it's ok, I'll post the pattern a little later.
I really enjoyed this for the nice mindless car knitting, I like being able to keep my hands busy while still being able to watch the landscape and talk to Bill as he drives. It was especially nice on the dark rides home, usually I fall asleep with nothing to do but sit in the dark, but with the kitting I was able to keep awake, and keep Bill company. I think I may start a pair of plain no pattern socks to keep in the car for future rides.
I haven't gotten very far with the hedera look-alikes. This was taken yesterday, and I'm still about an inch away from the heel, I think I've kind of lost steam now that I know they are just for me, maybe once I finish a little more holiday knitting I'll make quicker progress.
