I’ve been knitting….and knitting….and then some…
And no matter how hard I try, I don’t seem to be getting to the end.
I’m making one of those projects that will keep going forever and ever and never be finished.
And I really want it to be finished because I want to wear it.
This is my version of Color Affection by Veera Välimäki (who has to be one of the very best designers around, in my humble opinion) You can see what it should look like here. Pretty scrummy eh? I have no idea how long my version is. It’s just a big scrunched up jumble on a round needle that goes on and on….I think I must be up around 500 stitches a row. It goes on forever and ever into infinity. I have to sit down for what feels like half an hour just to get one row knitted.
I’m coming very slowly towards the end of the short row section, where the rows come over at an angle to join the regular knitting. It’s seriously cool. I love the design and I really, really love the Rowan Cashsoft yarn I’m using. I love the soft smoochyness of it. I love the colors. I have tons of things that it will look wonderful with.
I just wish that I could be done with it. I’m dreaming about how it feels to cast off a billion stitches at the end of a project that has taken over my life….
Oh and as a little interlude I did manage to finish these blocks for Lush in the Sew Euro-bee-an bee….they were done in the twinkling of an eye. (Sorry about the dark photo – I’ve been living in a bank of fog for the last few days. there is seriously no light here at all…it feels like we’re living in a glass of milk)
Unlike something else I’m not going to mention…again…till it’s done…
