This is STILL not a commitment to NaKniSweMoDo on my part.
Nope, it’s sheer (mere) coincidence that I’ve started (and made rapid progress on) Maude Louise:
I took these photos yesterday afternoon; in the intervening time I’ve finished the back and gotten a solid start on the right front.
The lattice pattern is a lot of fun, but as you can see (or maybe not), the first row turned out a bit wonky, as I was knitting directly from the US8’s onto the 4’s. For the fronts, I’m going to do that last purl row on the 4’s before starting the lattice pattern – should make the first row a lot tidier.
Yarn is Cascade 220 Heathered in “Glamour”, and it’s a delicious color – the reds aren’t showing up correctly; the color is deeper and heathered with a greyish brown that make a color that’s sophisticated yet fun.
I’m really excited about this one, y’all.
(VERY IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: I DO NOT HAVE ELEPHANT CALVES. THIS IS AN ISSUE OF POOR PHOTOGRAPHY AND AN EVEN POORER ANGLE. I DO NOT HAVE ELEPHANT CALVES.)
(awright I just put up some actual knitting content – can I continue to call this a knitting blog now?)
