I wasn't born with wings, so I'm trying to make my own
Saturday, March 01, 2003  

Unfortunately life has been getting in the way of my fiber pursuits. Thursday I had work, then had my mini knitting party with Mom, but I didn't get much done. I worked on her sock and I now have about an inch of the 2x2 ribbing. I'm not sure how much I'll get before I run out. Hopefully, she'll like the length of the sock (however long that ends up being!) But here's what I worked on today:

It's the three ply of box office in the pattern "Ostrich Plumes" from B.W.'s second treasury. I love the thickness of this yarn, and I really prefer working with it over the two ply. And, I love the pattern. It has a thirty two row repeat, but there's only a pattern row every four rows and there are only two different pattern rows, so I have the pattern memorized. Even though this is four inches, it's only a little over one pattern repeat. The knitting is going really fast as well. I had only meant to make this an amulet bag and pick the pattern for the scarf later, but I like Ostrich Plumes so much, I may use it for the whole scarf. This pinning job isn't the greatest and it will probably be even prettier after it's been blocked out, but I wanted to have it stretched enough to show the lace well. Anyway, this is going to be a killer project. I love the roving, love the yarn it makes, love the pattern, etc. It's just going to be very enjoyable, which is good because it will take me a long time. I still have scads of the silk to spin, so I'm still pretty much at the ground floor of this project. I'll be really interested to see how long this project actually takes. But for now, I love the results I'm getting, so I'm going to try to just enjoy the ride :-) Happy March, and hope you're having a great weekend!
