Knitting in the Knitty household
It continues, really! Want some proof?
I am knitting a SWEATER. Seriously. I have also recently accepted that my knitting has to be near-mindless or I just can't finish anything. So instead of an uber-flattering BGK sweater [which would require me to actually pay attention to a pattern at multiple moments], I'm using some BGK principles and knitting a super-deep V neck top-down raglan with waist shaping. If i were really keen, I'd be adding short rows. One thing at a time, people.
Here's where it is so far:
And a close up of the yarn, which you can find here. It's a great pure cotton yarn -- two strands of different colors twisted together. Knits up nicely...you just have to watch that you catch both strands in every stitch.
It's lovely mindless knitting and it's making me happy. I just might get this one done this century!
Something to save for the future...a treat that came hand-dyed from Scout -- cotton and elastic sock yarn in Knitty-friendly colors!
. Two different approaches, and both are delectable! Thank you, Scout!
And an update to the post about Habu...it's arrived at Jillian's place, and here it is!
Charcoal leaning toward blue. I don't get to touch it for a while, though. But I can look at sweet Henry's face and my yarn any time I want, thanks to this pic.
So there. Knitting continues, along with book writing, magazine producing and occasional laundry washing. Clearly I have my priorities straight!
