Ande has commented a time or two that our little elegant princess has ginormous kangaroo feet. Hmph.
While I continue to be tempted away from my current WIPs every time I browse the Rav, I decided to pick up my mini-Clapotis and work on that exclusively until it’s done.
That is some sock yarn I picked up in Seattle, it’s “Pagewood Farm Yukon Hand Dyed Bamboo Sock Yarn” in colourway “Navajo”. It is really nice to work with, very soft (it’s a blend of merino and bamboo) and using the 4.5 mm needles is giving it such a lovely drape.
Instead of messing with stitch markers, etc. I followed a tip I found on the Rav to knit twisted the stitches before/after where the marked stitch would be, and simply purl the marked stitch. It really speeds things up. There are only two rows on the “straight” part of the scarf that you need to pay attention, and you will know when you get to them because of how you are increasing/decreasing those edge stitches and moving the clapotis pattern to the left.
Ripped! from the tabloids!!
You’ll notice on the left sidebar I decided to go ahead and rip out the Booty Bag. It had been marinating for almost a year and the urge to make it has now left. So now I have three skeins of Cascade 220 in seafoam and three in espresso. Hmm, wonder what I could make with that?
