I am in big trouble. My natural tendency to become distracted is rearing its head. I have been going strong on my “work” knitting. I haven’t even been tempted to knit anything else. I had been riding a doll making high that was rather satisfying.
I went to a knitting meetup on Wednesday. There I laughed and knit with many lovely ladies. I had a great time and went home exhausted and anxious for the next time I may be able to make a meeting. Let me tell you how this wonderfully good time is to blame for my current state. One of the ladies there had on a Karate jacket by Twinkle.
Do you see now where I’m going?
I must have a chunky knit cardi. I must! I actually had dreams of wearing one. A dream, can you believe it? I hardly pay attention to what I wear when I’m awake.
The problem is, I don’t have that book. I don’t want to buy it. The Brooklyn libraries don’t have it and the NY branches copies are all checked out (except for one in SI, I don’t want it that bad). I checked Ravelry and I was tricked into thinking I had an issue of Vogue Knitting with this one in it. I’ve been thinking of buying this pattern, but I hate knitting cables. Though these shouldn’t take long. This one is also a strong contender.
I stayed up to nearly 4am knitting with two strands of Ella Rae Classic, trying to come up with something I liked the look of. I’ve had little success.
