Another gray rainy day yesterday. Good for knitting inside but not so good for knitting outside. I often knit small projects while on my daily walk with Molly Brown at the dog park but yesterday was just a bit too wet and my stitches were sticking to the wet needles. So I read the latest Patternworks magazine. It led me to daydreaming about all of the projects I’d love to knit. There is a “ruffled collar pullover pattern” (p58) that is gorgeous. Some one from the Yarn Garage knit this and it was modeled at the Knit Out a few weeks ago. It really is gorgeous and doesn’t look too complicated.
Another project I have always wanted to tackle is knit rugs. . . don’t ask me why. The time investment would be outrageous but I keep coming back to wanting to knit rugs. There is a book by Donna Druchunas, “The Knitted Rug” advertised on pg 13 which started my fingers itching.
The item I’m actually going to purchase from this issue of the catalog is the Knitter’s Row Keeper Bracelet. Anyone ever use one? I’ve used lots of techniques to keep track of rows while knitting but nothing has ever truly satisfied me. (I know, I can’t always get what I want). The scrap paper with chicken scratches always disappear before I get to the other mitten, or the other sleeve. I think I’ll give this row keeper a try.
Off to count some knitting rows,
