It’s all Koigu all the time here at WendyKnits.
I might have gone just a tad overboard on my Koigu purchasing frenzy Wednesday night at Knit Happens.
Kerry, I did leave some Koigu for you — honest! Does it help to know that I was thinking about you as I was grabbing the Kersti? No, I didn’t think it would . . .
So here’s what I purchased.
Ten skeins of Kersti.
I wound one of the skeins into a ball last night and it accompanied me to work today. I gazed longingly at it all day. It whispered sweet nothing to me. Soon, my pretty . . .
I plan to use this to knit a short-sleeve ribbed raglan pullover. It’s a design I worked up last summer (Lisa) and knit in Rowan Calmer. I wasn’t completely thrilled with the way it looked in Calmer — I’ve tweaked the pattern slightly and I’m thinking I’ll like it better in Kersti.
I did knit a Kersti swatch last night to double-check gauge. I love how this colorway works up! I get to start it as my commuter knitting tomorrow.
It took all of what little willpower I have to not cast on immediately. But I did finish my Kashmir scarf first.
Okay, it’s almost finished.
Yes, I do remember saying that December is Small Projects Month. This will be a small project because it has short sleeves. So there. (stamps foot)
Speaking of Small Projects . . .
Here’s what else I bought.
Two skeins each of six colorways of KPPPM. What am I gonna knit with two skeins of KPPPM? I dunno.
I’m thinking about gloves, for starters. Not socks, though.
Hey, here’s an idea. Tell me what you think. Email me here, and tell me what you think I should knit from 2 skeins of Koigu KPPPM. I’ll pick a winner and send said winner a fabulous prize.
1. One entry per person
2. Tell me a specific pattern and either a link to it (if it’s a free pattern) or where to buy it (if it’s a for-sale pattern)
3. No patterns for socks, gloves, or mittens.
4. Submit your entry to this email address by 4:00pm EST Friday, December 17, 2004, to be considered for the contest.
I haven’t decided on the prize yet, but I promise it’ll be fabulous!
Spinning . . .
I plied some singles!
Another Wendy asked:
So does the use of three Who songs as opening theme’s for CSI, CSI:
Miami, and CSI: NY bother you?
Well . . . it does now. I’ve never seen any of the CSI shows. But now I know. Sigh.
Yet another Wendy asked me to clarify: Do I know the entirety of Tommy by heart? Why yes, I do.
In fact, when I went to see the musical a few years ago, I couldn’t enjoy it. Every single time it strayed from the original rock opera, it bothered me. Intensely. Insanely.
Just so you know: if I ever hear a muzak version of Wish You Were Here, I will not be held accountable for my actions.
Have a good weekend.
