Warning: Swine is turning into a sycophant!
I have joined another Knit Along. When I started this site, I never joined the KAL’s — didn’t want the pressure. Now I can’t seem to stop myself! I feel like a toady.
But seriously, how to resist Black Water Abbey yarns? What better way to justify the expense than to join up? Does it make a difference that I am knitting something for my Boar? That the name of the pattern is Halcyon and it’s good for my vocabulary?
This also ties in quite nicely with my conundrum of yesterday – I like to wear plain-ish sweaters. So my knitting skills are never expanded. So I shall knit something more challenging for my Boar.
I never finished the Fry Up?
It just so happens that I spent last night cleaning my knitting plate as it were ……
The fry up is lovely!
And why not start as many projects as we want?
knit on, latifa
Those bunnies are so cute! Mary Beth (http://irwinmb.typepad.com/my_knitting_life/) just finished knitting Halcyon and it’s beautiful. All those patterns are! Have you ever knit for Boar before?
In answer to yesterday’s question, I tend to knit sweaters I will actually wear, but I also enjoy knitting in very fine yarns. You can do color and cables without the bulk. Of course, it takes me a year and a day to finish anything!
I have knit for Boar before. Not being aware of the ‘boyfriend curse’, I knit him a sweater when we were in college. I completed a vest last year that he has worn a number of times and have also knit him a pair of socks….. I have to reclaim those socks, he never wears them!
I’m so tempted to join but I’m ready for summer knitting. That Fry Up just gives me the giggles!
Is that bunny knitted from the fry up poo yarn? They are adorable. Chocolate and vanilla, huh? Great looking fry up. :) Fab sausage.
I’ll be curious how the Blackwater Abbey Yarns knits up — there was a trunk show at an LYS recently, and while I found the colors rich and lovely, I thought the yarn itself was a little scratchy. I will look forward to seeing how it works out ’cause if it ends up soft, I hear a stash enhancement coming up…
