Halycon Days are Here Again….

One of my handiest knitting accessories won’t fit in my knitting bag — or any knitting bag for that matter.

It’s my copier.

I am one of those people who would never, ever write in a book.  (although I get a secret thrill when I come across a page that has someone else’s writing on it)  This includes pattern books.   With the copier, and in my own home no less, I am free to scribble everywhere — and if it gets to full of my knitting hieroglyphics, I can always make another copy.

Another faboo thing is the enlargement feature.

Yeah, I said it.  And I think you know what I mean.

Engorge enlarging charts!

Through the magic of enlargement, I was able to make my BWA Halycon somewhat portable!  With these nice giant charts, I don’t have to concentrate quite so much when reading them.  And because it was a copy of the original pattern, I took a scissors, cut out each individual chart and am now able to use a smaller magnet board.

In the past two days, I have knit 16 rows!

Today is overcast, muggy and dreary.

What does this have to do with anything?

This sweater does not photograph well with the flash on my camera – it seems to drain out all the detail of the cables (I think because the yarn has a heathered look to it).  But I was forced into an indoor photo shoot.  So here you have:

  1. GORGEOUS —-can’t wait to see the finished product. So far, it is my favorite.
    Such talent — Grammy is up there smiling.

  2. Enlarged close-ups with fuzzy details? Hoohoooooo.

    I don’t have a copier, per se, but I do have a scanner with photocopy feature and I love, love, love it! And, if you can imagine, I love it even more when it’s working with its partner, the color laser printer.
