The moon was full and setting as the sun was winding itself up. It was quiet outside, the neighborhood was still asleep. I was smitten by the silence.
Falling of the Yarn Fast Wagon - with this purchase of Lorna's Green Line DK in a shade called Sherbet. This is Organic Merino plus nylon 145 yards = 2 oz. On sale at Jimmy Beans Wool.
I finally decided to do a moss stitch sweatshirt. If you haven't done moss stitch in the round lately, it is lulling - I was surprised how many errors I made at first. Finally, got it down. These basic stitches are easy but hard in that they are good for TV watching and messing up the diagonal look the stitches make.
I will knit 5 more inches and then break the shirt at the armholes and knit back and forth. Since I am just 'planning' as I go, I will decide on a neck type later. I think I will make it easy by saddling the shoulders and then knitting the arms top down. I think the ribbing on the sleeves will be long so the shirt can be pushed up easily. Since this is not washable by machine yarn, I'll be careful.
I am not fussing with the variegate but letting the pools fall where they may. It was on sale and I bought enough for a new pair of socks. I will measure everything in case anyone likes the baggy look.
So far, I do retain the title of the Slowest Knitter in the World. Stay tuned to see if I finish this sweatshirt and start this design called, Odette. I have been saving some white Merino/angora mix for this Verena pattern.
Believe it or not, this is an Angora rabbit. At least 2 sweaters worth of hair is my guess.
