Time Out

Molly is in time out. I picked up the 214 stitches for the front band last Sunday and after knitting 1 row it looked wonky to me. I'll need to redo that (no problem). It's the yarn that was giving me a headache. The yarn is so soft and pretty but acrylic makes my fingertips breakout in little blisters.

So while my fingers are trying to heal, I started another teeny pink project. I had this lone ball of KP Merino Style in Petal and found a cute cable project called Nakiska. Actually I was 50% done on the 2nd size last night then I measured it and it was only 12.5". I totally forgot to take into account that the gauge was off so I ripped it all out and started again. This time I'm doing the largest size.

Above picture captures the true color.


Cables show better in this picture.

LOVE LOVE both the merino in petal (that's what I'm using for Ruffles from Scarf Style) & Nakiska which is on my long project list...but will alas, not be a pink kal object!

This is so beautiful! I would love to have one myself. Hmmm -- I guess I need to start another project.
