Woman on the VERGE of a New Threads Friday
and to prove I can’t do anything in a direct way, I’m binding off the last stitches of my Urban Pshawl even as I write this…
My fascination with my knitted projects, in typical late summer fashion, ebbs and flows in equal parts love and disdain. A Sine Wave of positive and negative charge – AC Knitting Electricity, if you please…
IN A DC WORLD!
I need to be more linear and travel that Stitchery Circuit in a direct fashion…
And there-in lies the problem: ahemmm, FASHION!
I see sweaters on the street, on the rack, AND, now that it’s becoming, for real, Sweater Weather, on display in all of the Local Yarn Palaces…
I ran into We’ll Keep You in Stitches yesterday to snag some 24″ circs to finish the Pshawl neckline and what do my gluttonous eyes spy?
The new Fall 2004 Adrienne Vittadini pattern book! WOOT! IMHO, this design house (anybody out there know WHO the actual knitwear design genius is?) puts out the BEST, bar none, collection of patterns every season. (To say I’m seriously underwhelmed by the Fall offerings at Vogue & IK is an understatement…)
AND, as I was checking out, I saw these hand crafted Birch Needles by the register (let’s hear it for IMPULSE PURCHASING YAY!!!). Actually, just what I needed to whip out some Super Bulky Scarves without beating myself to death with my other pair of looooong #19 needles. These are from the folks at Lakewood Needle Co. in Milwaukee, WI.
(20 min. later…)
the Urban Pshawl is FINISHED!!!
