I’m so pressed for time today that I’m going to have to fill out a 15-minute form.
1. Have you finished any knitting? If so, please describe.
Honey Cowl (self-explanatory). This one is for my knitting pal, and fellow founding member of the New York City chapter of the Alabama Chanin Sewing Society (which should be a thing), Rosanne. The yarn is Madelinetosh DK in the shade Brothers Grimm, which is an emerald-to-forest green overdyed with black. It reminds me of greasy leather work boots, Hell’s Angels, and rock and roll, and will look great with auburn hair.
2. Have you started any new knitting? If so, please describe.
Honey Cowl (self-explanatory), this one a request from Carrie for a cowl-less friend. Got wild and crazy–this one is not Madelinetosh, but some great Neighborhood Fiber Co. that I scored at Vogue Knitting Live (it barely made a ripple in the stash before it was cast on–that’s my new theory of Stash Management: skipping stones/skeins). More later.
3. Are you making any progress on long-term projects that have seemed to take forever? If so, elaborate.
Delia’s Lair–my Bowling Avenue tribute blanket–is finished. Finished: as in, i-cord is on, ends are woven, and it’s ready for a Soak soak and a block. The pattern is nearly ready to send to the tech editor. BELIEVE.
4. Do you have any cool knitting news to share? If so, link please.
YES! THREE COOL THINGS!
a. This one is from Finland. (And also, it’s crochet.)
b. This one is from the Netherlands.
c. This one is from Scotland.
