There’s a design I like in the Spring issue of Knitters.
I know. No one was more surprised than I.
It’s “Delta Blue” by Kathy Zimmerman. This link may or may not take you to a photo of it, depending on how screwed up the KnittingUniverse website is at the moment you click on it.
Pattern calls for DK weight cotton and as it happens I have some DK weight cotton, in a lovely chocolate brown. I purchased it for next to nothing off eBay in a moment of madness. It’s Conshohocken Cotton Company yarn (did I spell that right?)
Yeah, I know I’ve said that I detest knitting with cotton. I’ll never learn, will I?
Got home late so I didn’t get much done.
This working for a living nonsense is cutting into my knitting time.
More Yarn Will Do the Trick
I listend to my Jean Moss CD — a lot of fun! There are three songs — the first one, More Yarn Will Do the Trick, has sort of a bluegrass feel to it. Four Loom Weaver is a traditional English folk song, and Mama Don’t Allow No Knitters is Moss’ version of a “traditional goodtime rag.” All in all, very pleasant listening, even for a non-knitter.
In these stressful times, remember Moss’s words:
“Why pay shrinks and doctors
When more yarn will do the trick?”
