I was sitting on the downstairs sofa this morning, knitting and minding my own business, when I heard a thump-stomp-snuffle quite near the back of my head. I opened the blinds to find the hibernating columbines becoming a snack.
In non-moose related news, I finally finished the Red Sweater. It’s still slightly damp, but I had to try it on anyway.
Begun as an experimental Salina (from Vintage Knits) knit in the round
Morphed into Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Saddle Shoulder sweater
Knitpicks Wool of the Andes, Black Cherry, 12 or 13 balls (not certain)
Because I’m a sucker for punishment, I started another big project while the Red Sweater was blocking. This one promises to move a bit faster, as it’s knit on size 9-10 needles.
That’s it, you heard correctly – the sock knitter is using paper-towel tubes to knit… well, can you guess what it is? Hint: it’s based on a pattern from Spin to Knit, and is using 250 yards of my favorite handspun along with 8 balls of Rowan Cork.
