Elizabethan AND green?
Actually, these long rows aren’t so bad. They go by pretty quickly. We’ll see if I feel the same way during the next step when I switch to smaller needles and a new stitch pattern.
I can start to see the drape this collar will have, and the lovely sheen that this yarn possesses. It makes it worth the wrangling of the slippery yarn. You know, I don’t mind putting in a significant effort when I can see it will pay off. I’m not a lazy knitter. Just don’t frustrate me with unnecessary complications--in anything, not just knitting. Sorry the color's so odd on this photograph--I was traveling and had to use my Blackberry to get the shot.
This has been an easy travel project once I got through the cast-on and set-up rows; it’s mostly stacking up knits and purls to form a ribbing so I’m not having to continually refer to the written instructions (something I dislike doing on travel projects).
Speaking of travel, take a peek at what I did with the small batch of yarn I had left over from my neck comforter. This makes me smile every time I use it. I simply measured the diameter of a “to-go” coffee cup, subtracted an inch for a snug fit, and used the fisherman’s knit pattern. Because I changed the length, I didn’t get the tie-die effect, but I like what I got anyway. Now I’m a green as it gets! Funny enough, this shot was taken with the same Blackberry--what gives?
I may not be a master of my Blackberry camera, but I'm now Elizabethan AND green...and how may women can make that claim?
