Trekking ….

all over my heart!Trekking_retrorib_001

I am in love with this yarn.  This is the Trekking XXL that I bought at Seaport Yarns  during Vicki’s Big Apple Tour.  The color changes are gorgeous!  Along with the Retro Rib pattern (to which I was already devoted), it is a lethal combination!

I  must. have. more. of this yarn.

This project was started with Christmas in mind, but they may have to end up in my stocking.  How do you other knitters part with these projects??  I suppose, now that I have posted pictures, I will have to keep them – otherwise the surprise is ruined.  That settles it. 

I was trying out different cast on methods.  I want/need to expand my repertoire.  Here is the Alternate Cable Cast On as explained in the Knitter’s Handbook

Another hot and humid day here – although some front is coming through tonight and bringing relief.  With the air conditioner on, my den is the perfect place for knitting.

  1. Love the color and it looks great in that pattern. I just bought some of that yarn in blues – it might have to move up to the top of the sock list!
