sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Well, Darnit!

I have officially given up looking for Tweed. It is not in the house and it is not in the shed, and I think I will just the money I had planned to use to buy gold coins and buy another copy. It’s galling to buy a second copy of a book I got for free, but it is more galling to have a sweater I love so close and yet so far from completion.

In other news, I did finish the pink and green Clapotis, which I think I mentioned, and also the mini-clap which I talked about the last time I posted. And yesterday, I finally cast on for the Suzie Hoodie. I am using Furlana for it. I think we could say that yarn is well-aged. It’s been in the stash since I received it as a baby gift when DaBaby was born. She will be five this month. It’s a slightly thinner yarn than the pattern calls for, but the hoodie would be too large in the stated gauge. I think by knitting the smallest size in the thinner yarn, I will end up with a garment that fits. This is the first time I have tried cables, and I like it. It’s an every other row instant thrill, LOL!

Since I don’t think I will finish Suzie this month, I am also going to have a smaller February project. I have some yarn here, a ball and a half of very soft wool in variegated grey that is even more well aged than the Furlana. I have been thinking for some time that it would make a great Seaman’s scarf for a friend of mine, and so I will be casting on for that sometime today as well.

Yes, I know there should be pictures here. Sorry. I’m having a hard time finding time for words lately, let alone snapshots.
