Moss-stitch chenille? All I can figure is that you have grown to love my endless bitching and moaning and have been casting about for the project that will most likely generate the maximum whimpering from me.
It would be a great pleasure, along the lines of cleaning out gutters, to make this for you. Especially because you’ll be hating Kidsilk Haze on the Elfin you’re doing for me. We can have a Whine-Off.
Some production notes: From which Rowan does this come? If it’s from one of the eBay Pricebuster Fresh-from-the-Smithsonian early issues, you’ll need to send the pattern. I have to put kids through college, you know.
How much Fine Cotton Chenille does it need? I have ten skeins in the most delicious soft chartreuse/apple green called Catkin, a shade that suits us of the Formerly Blonde persuasion. (It’s softer than it appears in the shade card.) If you want to provide the chenille, then we MUST work out some stash-balancing adjustment, because you’re already in the hole for the Felted Tweed for my Elfin WITH TEN MILES OF KIDSILK HAZE in it. (When the bars start showing up between my moss stitch, and my pile is going in the wrong direction, I’ll just remind myself that you’re knitting with hair and I could have it worse.) I have plenty o’ Felted Tweed in Arctic (a lighter gray) and Willow (a hay color) if you’re jonesing for more. Failing that, I plenty o’ just about anything except Handknit DK Cotton, because you have cornered the market on it.
Thank GAWD you came to your senses and ditched that simple, straightforward pattern and that giant, spongy, forgiving yarn. Hardship! Bring it on! What is life but toil and strife!
P.S. Have you come to any conclusions on the colourway for Elfin?
