I thought I was cruising, I thought I was high-flying. I had my pal’s information, I bought some great Lorna’s Laces yarn in the colors she likes from Ebay,
and I used the ball winder and beautiful swift (my dad made it for me and I love it) to wind up said yarn.
Then I started knitting the pattern I had chosen, Kew, from Knitty. The pattern wasn’t too bad to knit, though it seemed a bit large. I kept on chugging, however, and finished about 30 rounds, or the first repeat of the pattern. Though I liked how the colors were coming out in the pattern, it was inordinately large. I decided not to continue with the pattern, even in a different needle size. So I spent this evening looking for more patterns. I have a couple set aside, Snicket and Rainy Day from magknits.com. But I’ve also placed a hold on Vintage Knitted Socks from my local library. I won’t decide on a new pattern until I’ve perused it. In one word, bleh. In the meantime, I’ll keep busy with other projects.
