and this is what i've been working on this weekend … it's called Love actually is all around.
it's a free pattern from knitty.
i was doing a search the other day via ravelry for ideas for valentine's day, and rediscovered this pattern. i didn't want it in obvious valentine colors, so went with the black & white (and i wish my white was a bit less bright, but i'm not changing it now).
the cool part of this pattern is that it's double-knit! … thus, the other side is the reverse.
it took me 3 times to just get the cast on and set up row started. that's equivalent to at least 2 movies on netflix :p
but once i got started, it's been much much easier.
it's highly likely mine will come out a bit larger than the pattern intends. if it is too big, then i will just fold it over and pin it.
