The tour is coming to San Francisco. I bought tickets. The Bill Murray Sweater officially has a deadline. December 8th. Time to get on it.
I think it’s really going to be more of a vest?!?
That said, instead of working on that particular project, I’m cast on with this:
I attempted to trade my Fade to Yellow skein for a Concrete & Tulips skein — aka the rainbow and grey colorway. It didn’t quite go down that way though. One enterprising Raveler talked me into trading her a skein of Miss Babs’ Yowza. It was a color I really wanted but…I wanted this more!
It’s can’t wait! It’s a self striping yarn but instead of consistent lengths of each color, the colors get progressively longer. Instead of a big fat stripe of red at the top and little tiny stripe of blue at the bottom, the stripes will all be the same height. It’s definitely a minor detail to the untrained eye but knitters have been geeking out over it for a while. This yarn was quite hard to get for a minute there.
I’m sure stripe magic will take over and it’ll be done in a jiffy!
Of course, the only reason I’m allowed to cast on anything at all, Marled Magic is almost completely finished. Just a bit of end weaving left. The braid & the tassel turned out just right. A bit fiddly at first but third time was the charm!
Stay tuned for full photos…they’ll be along soon.
In the meantime, it’s the weekend! Wooooooooo!
