The Swiss Cheese scarf continues to be great fun to knit! I have taken to laying it out on the wee table in my office so I can see it all day long. It’s also a great conversation piece — a number of my co-workers stop by every morning to check on my progress and see what color I am currently knitting.
At this point in the knitting I have made it almost all the way through the color spectrum. I started with orange and am currently knitting red.
I’m starting to think about what to knit next. Right now I am all about the fun. And I want to use some more of the Kauni yarn I have in my stash. Different colorway, though.
Okay, you’ve seen what my last two projects were — Wingspan and Swiss Cheese. Based on that information, what pattern would you recommend I knit next? I want something that’ll look good in this type of yarn and that has a clever construction.
I’ve got a couple of patterns in mind, and a friend suggested a few more (thanks, Sharon!) but I’d love to hear your suggestions as well.
A few of you asked who/what Basil was named for. As several of you correctly surmised, I named him after Basil Fawlty, from Fawlty Towers. I love Fawlty Towers and only wish that John Cleese had made more episodes.
Today I worked only a half day, so my Basil and I went out in the afternoon for some errands and then some fun. Here he is, parked, pretending he is just like the big cars.
Lucy stayed home and had some of her own type of fun.
