It’s Wednesday and I am full of wips! There was a slight bout of castonitis yesterday. There are still hats to be made and stash to be busted so there’s a new hat on the needles…
It’s my favorite yarn combo, Superior Cashmere and Panda Silk! It’s the most amazing thing to knit, so soft and lovely!
And it’s about time I started something for Malabrigo March!
The yarn is Malabrigo Arroyo and the pattern is chose your own adventure knitting inspired by Sequence Knitting. The tagline is ‘Simple Methods for Creating Complex Reversible Fabrics’. In addition to being a gorgeous book, it delivers gorgeous fabrics, every time! I played around with a few different swatches, all attractive and easy to execute. I decided on a simple K4, P4 repeat within the framework of a bottom up, asymmetric triangle. I’m striping two colors, two rows each. Couldn’t be easier, the process knitter in me loves it!
It’s going to be perfect as a daily commute project! and it’s reversible. I love everything about it! I’m thinking about ways to change up the sequence for my next one already!
And just so I wouldn’t feel guilty about ignoring the stack of UFOs, I picked up my second doodler again. Clue 3 begins by picking up 300 stitches.
I don’t count so it’s actually easier than it sounds! I’m certain I didn’t have the correct stitch count but I like to live dangerously. I made it work. There was never actually any danger. No biggie.
And now, it’s time to knit!
