Ode to ONDE
Onde = Wave
I’ve made a little experimental progress on Le Gilet Onde.
I am making my first sleeve! Why get excited about a sleeve? Well, here at the ChicKnits Workshop sleeves are like a giant case of the cooties.
Act like they don’t exist, even though your perfect garment of choice is always a sweater with not one but TWO SLEEVES…
So, by starting my Onde with a Sleeve Fest, I kill two birds with one stone:
1. I get those pesky cootie crawlin’ things out of the way right away.
2. I get to see how a NEW YARN acts under the needle.
CONCLUSION: I love this stuff. I was, like many of you out there, ready to flame it to a melted little pile over its acrylic content and small gauge, but wonder of wonders, my instincts held and it is going to be a BEAUT!
