It's hot Knitsters. Hot like, well just gross hot. A few years ago, I went on a trip to Morocco, and I had a better time adjusting to the heat over there than I do this humidity and icky pollution! (47C in the dessert...another story, another post...)
The poor Little Dudes:
Well, how has the weekend been?
So, here's the scoop.
I couldn't find my longer 3.25 DPN's, so I couldn't start tackling the arms on Ophelia (!). What's a girl to do? No Fair Isle? The thought made me kind of twitchy and weird. So, I turned to Lorraine for guidance. Uh huh.
I asked her to try to "talk" to me out of starting Jade Starmore's Amphora.
She was very effective.
What?? No knitting and no Fair Isle make Brigitte something something...
Oh, Amphora how do I love thee?! Ooooo baby! She is moving along quickly - there are only 4 colours in total, and color changes every 3-4 rows or so. My thumb is holding down the hem facing. No ribbing!
How is it that it can be 34C outside, and I'm inside happily knitting 2-ply Shetland wool? Guess it's all for the love of Fair Isle, isn't it? I love my arans - particularly my current WIP Arangenser, however - it's 6-ply heavy Norwegian wool knit on 5.5mm. Not always a good idea when the weather threatens to felt the yarn on the needle... Fair Isle? I can work no matter the weather (not always comfortably, but what always is?!).
Are we FI junkies a little...I don't know...obsessed?! Not that it's a bad thing...
