Knitting Up A Storm!

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

Oh people, people, people! I am under 200 balls of yarn - I only have 199 balls in the stash. This is such a great day my friends, I can not believe it. I have three sweaters on the go, Wicked, Essential Striped Sweater and will start Ariann shortly. This means, if I finish them rather soon, 30 balls of yarn will be subtracted from the current total.

I am on a mission peoople and no one, do you hear me - is going to stop me.

Last night I swatched for Ariann because Bonne Marie's instructions were quite clear - if you get anything other than 19 sts/24 rows, your sweater will not turn out right. I am a big fan of Bonne Marie and heed her advice seriously, so I swatched and got 19sts/25 rows using Patons Classic Merino Wool in sage green. Very close. So now I just have to wait for my knitpicks needles to arrive to I can use the 32" cable because I only have 24" circs in size 4mm. I have plenty to amuse myself with until they arrive.

Knitting in 2007 is turning out quite good, but I am sure will change after I post this because the knitting gods will be a tad pissed I am getting so cocky.
