Yes, this project is dead to me. I have so moo-ved on!! ::Groan::
Pueblo Stole in High Country Colorway, designed and kitted by Carol Sunday
This was extremely putsy and I hope I end up liking it and wearing it. I thought I could squeeze it in this year but it is going to be 76 degrees tomorrow! Complaining? NOOOOO!!
I flew back yesterday and saw snow covering some of the landscape, but luckily none here. I took today off to recuperate from my grueling trip of knitting, eating, and watching TV. To recover, I am knitting, eating and not watching TV.
Sally broke a record by finishing three projects in ONE DAY!! One of them was her Pueblo Stole (getting it blocked), but she had two others as well. I had two that day (one was also my Pueblo). We will share the others as time goes by!
We bought some beautiful yarns at Maryland Sheep and Wool but it is stuff we will use so we feel good about all of our purchases.
Back to work tomorrow. Not complaining, but…
PS: Janet asked what made this shawl/stole/scarf so putsy and Sally answered that you add new yarn on the fringe edge every row even when knitting the same block of color. That added to the ever changing increases and decreases, and the 112 row color sequence and you get the idea. Once done, you need to deal with the fringe. I used a crochet hook to anchor each pair of fringes where they attached to the scarf, then I knotted each pair 5 inches from the scarf, and then trimmed them even. P. U. T. S. Y.
PS2: Today is cool and overcast so I decided to wear this very autumnal fashion statement to work. I have received NUMEROUS compliments! Yay!!
