More Loopy Behavior

Ravelry is so much fun, I keep forgetting I have a blog and fail terribly to keep it updated. My only attempt at a defence is that I've noticed a lot of other people's blogs slow down since they got on Ravelry, so its not just me! ;-)

I am in fact being very prolific. On the one hand I'm experimenting with lots of techniques. After having a go at Magic Loop, I set my sights on Moebius, and below is evidence that I managed it! Thanks so much to Gilraen, who has an amazing moebius wrap that I am jealous of (which I found on Ravelry), I read up on the technique and gave a it a go. The yarn is Colinette Prism that Piglottie gave me ages ago and I have been saving for something special. I really want to turn it into a moebius wrap for my shoulders like the Cat Bordhi Caplet. I didn't, however, get much further than this attempt as my cast-on was a bit lumpy, so I need to do it with a cable cast-on next time. And there will be a next time, after the set up, its just knitting round and round and round...
I have also been working on lots of Christmas presents and when I'm finished I will show them all off at once.
