River Grass Gansey is a lofty project and really want to knit it. I don't like to commit to projects on the blog...it's one of my idiosyncrasies. And here's why. Cast on 272, join for knitting in the round, MAKING SURE NOT TO TWIST THE STITCHES. I knit merrily along, never noticing my lovely mobius until I had enough to measure. See? Bachi! (Japanese for curse) It makes me want to knit a cardigan. And really I'm still not sure it's the right pattern for the yarn. It is rolled up nicely in a little yarn cake now until it speaks to me again. The gansey is still calling to me, but the yarn keeps whispering "lace". Yikes, I hope not.
So I made some earrings and a hello kitty key chain, working on the bead stash.
I've signed up for a couple classes at the Madrona Fiber Festival. The classes really went fast so no FairIsle beginning class for me. Instead I will be dyeing with persimmons. Also no Yarn Harlot. Oh well. Just being in the same town will be enough:)
