FO Friday (SHHHH I KNOW IT’S MONDAY) - Through the Woods
I have no good excuse for not posting this on Friday. Honestly, I spent the entire day until 7:15pm in bed, knitting jewelry, watching tv, drinking tea, and not taking pictures for this blog post in spite of the excellent natural light. It was enormously restful and apparently I needed it very much.
So this hood thing! It is amazing, I love it, everyone who sees it loves it, asks how much it would cost to have me make one for them, and then quickly regrets asking. It is unbelievably warm and makes me feel like I’ve stepped straight out of Assassin’s Creed: Deadly Textiles.
For the first time ever I actually used the recommended yarn and needles, then completely skipped swatching, and proceeded to be so confused by the construction of this relatively simple item that I fucked it up and had to undo large sections three times before it occurred to me to just change the more baffling instructions (bind off an edge, then pick up stitches along it? WHY?).
