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,
