It’s because of cute, quick little projects like Calorimetry that I pushed myself past my purling problems and stuck with learning to knit. I gave up on finishing the scarf and turned it into a little purse for the girls. (I think I said that in my last post, but I still haven’t taken a picture of it!!) So, I present to you my second ever finished knit project –
Laura wanted to model it before her bedtime. I’m thinking of using a smaller yarn to make her one.
Now the details – I used a handdyed worsted weight wool yarn that I picked up in Flagstaff about three years ago. I threw away the label when I wound the center-pull balls (egads!) so I have no idea of the name. I believe it was made in the region, but I can’t say for certain. I cast on 96 stitches instead of the 120 that the pattern called for. It fits perfectly at this size. I started it Friday evening and finished it Saturday afternoon after a great gathering at Starbucks with a couple of my CGOA chapter friends.
Just because she needs some photo love too, this is how patient Buffy is with the girls, particularly Maddie –
