It's scarf time I got the new spring Patternworks catalog and couldn't resist the S. Charles Collezione Rondo ribbon yarn in Carribbean. I was in the mood to make and knit a non-winter scarf for myself and lo and behold, Patternworks is offering this pattern with purchase of the yarn. Then I decided to make a scarf for Kerin's birthday with the Berrocco Suede ribbon yarn with the Calamity Jane (purple) and Dale Evans (off-white) shades. I will probably work the two colors together because 4 stitches per inch is too small a gauge for me.

Top 10 Knitting Disses 10. You crochet? That's nice. 9. I've been knitting since I'm 6. 8. Oh- you're still using straights? 7. I lost count! You made me lose count! 6. I only knit for babies. 5. I only knit for people who've stopped growing. 4. I won't waste my time with acrylic yarn. Correlary: Yo mama knits with acrylic. 3. For me, it's bamboo/rosewood/Addi Turbos or it's nothing. 2. Shhh- I'm counting stitches! 1. Can we delay this conversation until I finish binding off?

Although I have not previously even mentioned that I was planning to start it, I have knit the front and back of the Jayla sweater which comes from Debbie Bliss' Quick Baby Knits. It's the roll-neck stocking stitch sweater on p.32-33. Since I am using size 2 needles and knitting 5 stitches per inch, it was really slow starting. At first, I was so frustrated with how long it was taking me, I swore never to knit at this gauge again. However, I learned that a Saturday spent on the couch watching TIVOed Law and Order: SVU episodes helps to add inches. Two weekends give me two sides of a 2T size sweater sweater. Otherwise, yes, 5 sts per inch is too slow for me. The sweater is for my best friend's daughter Jayla who really is the most beautiful child. She's very bad about sleeping through the night, but she gets high marks in the cuteness department. So she deserves all this hard work. While we are in Tahoe this weekend, I plan to knit the sleeves. I would start now but I am waiting for the straight needles I ordered to arrive. One of the frustrating things about knitting this sweater is the 29" circular needles that are too long and curly and drove me crazy throughout the knitting of the first piece. By the second piece, it sort of straightened itself out and I guess I got used to it. But for the sleeves, I should make my life easier.
