Big girls can too play with crayons




Being rather late to knitting in general and color knitting specifically, I have to say, I wonder why. This is such an entertaining form of knitting and I find the patterns so mesmerizing, I just can't put my needles down. I've been having fun with these hats and find myself saying, one more row, one more row. Tam B is the last of three and I chose to make it with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a cream color and Mochi Plus for the variegated striped yarn. I'm not completely finished yet so I can't show you the star on top, but it's my favorite so far. The yarns are so soft and the sheen and stitch definition are perfect for this project.

Oh.

Yeah.

See that rib? I finally conquered the purling problem encountered with Tam A.

After whining about my schedule this week, I found out a last minute request to take Friday off was granted. All in all, this week is shaping up to be a good one.

That is a work of art. How many balls of yard are you working with? I've not knitted for 40+ years but way back I made Lenny three sweaters, one of which was a multicolored patterned ski sweater. I think I'm going to ask for knitting supplies for Christmas and see what happens. If I can remember to cast on stitches, I think I can knit again.

Your love of color work amazes me. I'm a cable and lace kind of gal. Color work doesn't make my needles happy, but I so love to look at the beautiful designs and colors that you've chosen. I'm cheering you on. Great news on the day off.
