Where Is Kay?!

Dear everybody,
I have been receiving the occasional email, Tweet, and Instagram from Kay in recent days, but something is definitely UP. She keeps using words like “office carpet” and “salad for lunch” and even the word cubicle NOT in reference to a knitted blanket.
The good news is that she HAS been sending along photos of handknits in progress, namely Volume 2 in her four-volume series called Icelandic Sweaters For The Entire Family Literally.
Girl can lay down a stockinette no matter what the circumstances. This is a second iteration of the Riddari pattern that she finished a couple of weeks back. (Search our archives! It’s in there!)
Loving the murkiness of that yoke. I am craving something of this gauge at the moment. I’m frankly craving anything of any gauge other than the gauge I’m currently working.
Beautiful! Done! She’s a regular Rumpelstiltskin of the yoked sweater!
She writes: “It gets longer after you wash it, more tunicky. This pattern is not new but you can get it in the new Knitting With Icelandic Wool book, which is handy.”
Here’s hoping she resurfaces soon. I’m getting a little twitchy about all this.
Love, Happy Friday, and see ya in the break room for Donna’s birthday cake,

  1. You’re both amazing with the fancy-type sweaters! Hope Kay surfaces soon and can do some more lightning-round blogging.

  2. Ewwwwwwww, Kay, please don’t tell me you went out and got an 8 to 5 regular ole day JOB?! This is going to be a problem if it interfers with your #1 priority (okay #2 after kiddos) of knitting, blogging/tweating about knitting. The rest of us live vicariously through you . . . while I’m toiling at my desk, I often think of you at some grand location in NYC with cashmere on your needles!

  5. Knitters do not EVER belong in cubicles. (Actually I suspect no humans belong in cubicles.) Good luck, Kay. I hope the cubicle doesn’t sap your strength and drain your creativity. And, Ann, blogging for two will be hard, but I’m sure you can do it! After all, your 4-year project is just about done. Anyone who could do that can do anything!

  15. Well, I guess the teeny silver lining to Kay’s cube job is that she will really know and appreciate that knitting is not just “spozed” to be fun, it IS fun! Here’s to commute and evening and weekend knitting. (Oh, and invest some of your earnings into lots of OTT lights for that evening knitting…)
