Take My Able–Please
November 21, 2003
Here is my college friend Karin:
Karin admired my Able which, as you know, I have had a love-hate relationship with since knitting it last June. So I gave it to her. Doesn’t it look much happier already?
Of course I plan to respond to your paltry list of WIPs with a painfully documented account of my own descent into cast-on madness–the place is littered with sweater parts. But that is for another time. A time when I don’t have a dear old chum in town to sit around yakking with!
Here’s a tantalizing news blast for you, though: Karin wants a Birch! And I happen to have 3 balls of finders-keepers Kidsilk Haze, in Smoke, from your abandoned Elfin. Do you think Smoke is the colour for Karin? I was thinking maybe she might be more suited to the mauve-y shade shown in Rowan 34 (the trailerpark shot). Do you think I can possibly knit this thing, with Duc Ta’s Beautiful Chart, and if all of our friends clap their hands and chant ‘I believe in fairies!’?
More importantly, will you block it for me?
