Clearing out the WIP basket is so invigorating I’ve had to start something else immediately.
Going through the wardrobe, it’s readily apparent that some of the things that are my favorites aren’t even in there! They instead live in the Trunk: that ever expanding roadshow that goes hither and yon as samples for the portfolio.
Especially missing: a Twist sweater of my very own. I really like the sample; I made it for myself but it immediately became a sample when I didn’t have enough time to knit another for a photoshoot. When that happens, it’s hands-off (unless you occasionally cheat and model it during, say, a book sigining…)
So to celebrate the coming season, my favorite transitional time between summer and fall, I’ve dug in the stash and pulled out some Cotton Ease in Taupe and started a Twist that with any luck should be ready to roll right around when it’s back-to-school time.
So far, one sleeve down and one on the needles. I’m practicing extreme discipline here, people, knitting the sleeves first so I’ll be especially motivated to finish the rest quickly. This is one of the primary reasons I like knitting things in pieces. You can choose yer poison.
And pretty poison it is…
(BTW: Does anybody have a couple of skeins in this color (Taupe)
dyelot 35102, that they’d be willing to part with?)
