Well, I have hit a knitting lull. Shock! Horror!
This isn’t because I don’t want to knit. I just don’t know what I want to do next. So many things to do, yet I generally have something in the wings just itching to get on my needles. I have several WIPs, but none of those are inspiring me.
In the end, I decided to cast on the Noni Medallion Travel Bag.
I bought this pattern while out with Miss SharonNZ a couple months ago when we were checking out the Knitworld Studio on the Grand opening day. I bought the wool online from Webs, and went with Cascade 220 Heathers Brown and Cascade 220 in pink. I got out the swift and wool winder, and Mr. KR1 helped me wind all 1200 grams. Gulp. That’s a pile of wool for a single project when you’re used to knitting items that are 150 grams or less!
So, I cast on. After the fourth row, I was sick to death of untwisting my wool for the fair isle. So between that, and the large wool commitment, I am having reservations about my choice of project. I am an instant gratification kind of girl, and this is going to take. a. long. time. So what to do? Do something quick of course! Another pair of gloves in the Evageline pattern, this time in a gorgeous blue/green colour of the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, for my friend Jo in Hammy. I hope she likes them!
