My Shetland Pi is at the point where it is pretty freaking huge. On my 32″ needle it hangs down and forms a large bag. This is nice because I can keep my working yarn inside the pi-bag. Heck, I could put my lunch and a change of clothes in there. Seriously, a small child could get lost in there.
This, of course, makes it unsuitable as a commuter project. I just finished a stealth project I have been working on, so needed to cast on for a new commuter project. I did so this morning before leaving for work.
This is the start of the Wispy Cardi by Hannah Fettig. The yarn is Tempted Lovely Grrl, in the “Renewal” colorway.
This is the yarn that Lucy helped herself to last week. I noticed this morning that she is still loving it. As I was casting on before I left for work this morning, she was rubbing up against and loving on the ball of yarn. At one point she tried to pick it up and carry it off, but it was fortunately too heavy for her to manage.
But I can see I’m going to have to put this project away when I am not working on it. No leaving it lying around on the couch, unguarded. I am thinking Miss Lucy needs a toy knit from the leftovers, though.
The pattern calls for a size 6 needle. I got gauge with a size 5, not surprisingly, because I’m using a heavier yarn. My cardi won’t be quite as wispy, but that’s fine with me. 🙂
Back to Pi
Your next serving of Pi, Part Four, will be available on Sunday. And it is a huge honking slice of pi, let me tell you! See you all then.
Lucy can’t hardly wait!
And here is the highlight of my day today:
Done and sent to my publisher. I think I deserve a celebratory margarita. Or possibly a celebratory pair of shoes.
