The Adventure Begins Tuesday June 8, 2010

All good trips start with a first step and this project was just beggin’ for this:


I put three cones of cotton in a low box and got barefoot with it.

You can see my winder is attached to a little wooden step-stool. This gives it a happy home with the right height for moi to park in front of visual entertainment and wail.

I made a big, triple-strand cake:


I apologize but it was just so pretty, I had to “pose” it in a Yarn Cake Portrait for the ages before I cast on my Absorba.

But how big was it?


Here it sits on the M-D book and you can see it takes up almost the whole 8.5×11″ page. Aiee! That’s a big cake ;p

What’s supposed to come next here are my first logs (I got to 2.5). But I did not like my gauge. I started out with a size 15 needle, ripped, then went down to a size 13 and ripped again.

It was just a little too loose — this yarn is thinner than what the pattern calls for and needs a little TLC to get going.

Now I am a woman on the verge of a cast on with the proper size needles. Powerful.

But will my Absorba be absorbA?

This lovely shade of ashy plum seemed just
the thing for my summertime toes. But when I saw this:


I was a goner! What are color are your tootsies styling this season?
