Here’s what I am working on today. It is going to be hugely warm as I am using Lamb’s Pride Bulky. Not what the pattern calls for, but what i had near at hand in a generous quantity. I had to seriously adjust the number of stitches, making the rows are nice and short, and the end product will be warm as can be. We won’t talk about why that is a good thing.
I have never done double knitting before, but when I saw this cowl by Lisa Myers in Interweave Knits, I decided to give it a try.
And I have been playing with black and white the past few days, coming up with an idea for a hat based on what I see out my windows – trees and that which we will not talk about. This just fell right into place with those thoughts and after I master this type of knitting, I plan to invent a hat and maybe cowl pattern. I already have a name for it, but no pattern yet. Creativity knows no order.
Maine woods in winter is what it will be called, and it will be beautiful and warm, unlike Maine woods in winter. (Winter is not weather, so it is OK to say that much. However, when you put winter and weather together, you come up with something I definitely do not want to talk about.)
