Yeah that was me to myself this morning. I have a new project this morning…. Late at night is a bad time for me. I seem to be incapable of resisting the lure of a planned project.
Last night I took one ball of Rowan fine lace in a deep purply grey and two balls of Rowan kid silk haze in very pale grey and cast on Martina Behm’s ’22 Clouds’ on 5mm needles. It’s designed for a DK and I probably have aran weight with the lace & kid silk haze held together, which is why I chose larger needles. I wanted to make something gorgeous and warm for a friend and I can see it’s going to be. As the kidsilk haze can be a bit sticky (in that it sticks to itself) I’ve decided to replace the increase 1 instruction along either side of the central spine with yarn overs & ons for ease. I love this pattern; I love all of her patterns. They’re deceptively simple but so fabulous to knit.
Before you ask, no I haven’t finished the knitted tunic, I’m not even going to think about the WIPs I have designated as ‘hibernating’ on Ravelry, Trillian 2 is coming along nicely (it’s in my bag for my trip to London today) though its not as joyous to knit as the first one. It’s not horrible and I do enjoy it; I still love the pattern and the colour way on the Lang yarn is beautiful. I think it was the slubby nature of the Noro that made it so addictive.
Hey ho. I’m off to London for three days today. Meetings today, then picking the girls up from Heathrow this evening followed by two days of sightseeing. Or knitting in cafes for me 😄😄😄
