This is such a surprise. As I have mentioned here before, I used to knit. But that was (most recently) in the 80s! A few years back I thought I'd make a little sleeveless shell and bought some yarn and started ... and stopped. Not interesting, too slow. I figured my knitting career was over.
But now, Wow! I can't seem to put the darned needles down. What is happening?
Anyway, I am signed up on Ravelry (as Kayyy) and this is my most recent FO. The pattern is one of the thousands of free ones, and it is a fast project. I bought the yarn (Diamond Yarn Merino Superwash Aran) last Sunday afternoon. By bedtime that night the hat was 6" tall. I finished it on Thursday and wore it Friday.
|Ready to knit the I-Cord|
There is supposed to be a bead on the end of the I-Cord but for now, I've just tied it in a little knot.
This afternoon I bought some Cascade 220 (100% Peruvian highland wool) to make this sweater. It's a delicious turquoisey-blue colour.
It promises to feed my new addiction for more than a week.
