knitting-wise, i've been as productive as possible, while maintaining the enjoyment factor.
for starters, i feel like i've been knitting on this sweater forever!
it's my juniper. and, i still love it … but if it doesn't behave, the love affair will be over soon.
so … what i've done. i've knitted the body (top down) and the sleeves. i bound off the sleeves. an then i started the body from under arms.
and i was knitting with "kinky" yarn. after the sleeves, i joined the body in the round with yarn i had already knitted and blocked. and ripped.
the yarn was more kinky than fusilli. and, as i learned, you just cannot knit with kinky yarn and expect the kinks to straighten.
so, i had to rip.
and the ripped yarn has been straightened.
and i'm back knitting with a new hank anyways.
HOWEVER, i've fallen in love again … apparently, knitpicks is now selling this yarn in kettle-dyed !!!
