Chronicles of Knitterly Misadventures


My knitting roll (with jam, etc.) has hit a snag. I’m in the home stretch of the High Neck Cable- seriously, I have about two inches to go and I’m done- but I don’t think I’ll have enough yarn to finish. I decided to set out and knit the Hemlock Ring for T, and hoped to get it done by the time he comes to visit sixteen and a half days from now, but the needles I ordered won’t get here until Friday. To even attempt to finish a blanket in thirteen days seems like, I don’t know. Insanity?

Now I’m just waiting to hear back from Missa and Jessica to see if, by any chance, they have just one more skein of Suri Merino in shade 411, dyelot 3860. Sigh.


What to do, what to do?

I have two skeins of Cascade Ecological Wool. That’s 950 yards of the second yummiest wool I’ve ever held in my hands.

It’s supposed to become the Hemlock Ring blanket for T, but I’m really tempted to scrap that idea and knit myself the Notre Dame Sweater from IK Summer, 2007 .

If I knit T a blanket he won’t be able to take care of it; his apartment is too small to lay out a blanket to dry after it’s been handwashed (which he won’t want to do), he probably won’t like the lace pattern anyway, and he’ll probably wind up spilling all kinds of unmentionable liquids on my lovely wool. But! He is my beloved, and in 3 years I’ve only knit him this pathetic little penguin, he was so impressed by the Swallowtail I knit for my mom, and can you imagine my beloved wrapped up at night in a blanket I knit for him? Doesn’t that just make you all warm and fuzzy inside? (or is that the wool?)
