I’m designating Amie as my Jaywalker Pinch-Knitter. Why should I bring the whole team down, when she’s obviously going to finish her pair? I’ve moved on to this simple, uncomplicated pair, since it’s clear that I can’t jaywalk properly. They remind me of geraniums in the summertime, which makes me happy.
Yarn: Trekking XXL Color 107
Needles: 2.5, 2.25 mm DPN’s (I use big for the cuff and leg, and small for the heel and foot)
Pattern: Basic Ann Budd pattern (but definitely Not Plain-Jane) with an Eye of Partridge heel flap
I’m still swatching for my Olympics Sweater. I have to choose a pattern, though. I’ve narrowed it down to a few, but I haven’t the slightest idea which one I’ll choose. I like Knitty’s Sonnet (especially because it’s knitted from side to side, and would show off my yarn, not my width), but I’m not fond of the neckline. I like Knitting Pure and Simple’s Side to Side and V-Neck Neckdown cardigans, too, but I don’t own these patterns, so I’d need to order them. I do have Ann Budd’s Knitter’s Handy Book of Sweater Patterns, so it’s conceivable that I could design my own…
Don’t Olympians have trainers and coaches who tell them what to do?
J and I tell each other what to do all the time. We’re in consultation at this very moment. All is not lost, and it is a particularly beautiful day today, so I think I will spend time enjoying it!
