I really have been doing things other than knitting, just haven’t felt like posting about anything of that. So, I’ve got yet another FO post for you all.
When I completed the Clapotis, I immediately took it into work to keep myself warm in my very cool office. Then, after less than ten minutes of wear, remembered that I can’t actually wear wool. After pulling it off, I decided a different recipient would be more appropriate, one of Lizzie’s primary preschool teachers.
Which left me with an issue: what do make for her other primary teacher? I knew that I would use the other DK gradient kit from Neighborhood Fibre Company, this one in teals and jades.
After a bit of thinking, I decided on an old favorite, the Foolproof Cowl.
I knit until I had 54 stitches per side, then switched colors. For each of the other two colors – the last two colors in the gradient kit didn’t get touched at all – were knit for 30 ridges before switching. I went dark to light then, after picking up the other side of the darkest stitches, I started with light. It makes sense if you saw it all together.
It wound up quite long, perfect for being doubled-up on your neck when it’s not in the mid-90s.
It’ll get delivered tomorrow, along with the Clapotis. Just a very little of what the two ladies deserve for handling a room full of two year-olds…
